  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: Carbon Blue Rili get along well with other shrimps, but they should not be kept with other members of the Neocardina family due to cross-breeding. Mixing different variations is advised with such shrimps as: Yellow, Schoko, Red Cherry, as well as Sakura Red, Black and Orange..
  3. Special notes: Most shrimps are herd animals, that's why it's better to keep them in a tank of over 20 liters.
