  1. Diet: They are decent algae eaters. Another great supplement are blanched nettle leaves, as well as foods intended for shrimps can be used to supplement their diet.
  2. My observations: Zebra shrimps are often shy and skittish, specially when they live in small groups. They tend to stay hidden all day long, come out just to eat. The bigger their population is, the more active they are. B Cross-breeding different variations is not possible with any kind of shrimps available in Poland. According to my experience, Babaulti Shrimp do not mix with any other kinds available in Poland.
  3. Special notes: Most shrimps are herd animals, that's why it's better to keep them in a tank of over 20 liters.
