|Water values:||soft to hard|
|Propagation:||possible in fresh water|
Female Yellow Fire (Neocaridina davidi) carry their eggs under their abdomen, where they fan and nurse them intensively. After a gestation period of three to four weeks (depending on the temperature) between 20 and 40 young animals hatch, which do not have to go through any more larval stages and grow up in freshwater.
If you buy an already pregnant female, you automatically have a much higher diversity of genes in the aquarium, and the number of shrimp grows much faster. Yellow Fire shrimp should never be kept alone, and even pregnant females, as group animals, need the security of an initial population of 10 to 15 animals.
Young shrimp should be fed a suitable dust food, such as Natureholic Baby Food.
For a detailed description about keeping and propagation please go to our main description of the "Yellow Fire Shrimp".
Our food recommendation: The soft Mainfeed Softpads from NatureHolic are designed for daily feeding. They contain all the nutrients shrimp need for shell development, egg formation and growth. During the production process we pay attention to a gentle and environmentally friendly production, which preserves the vitamins and other valuable ingredients as much as possible.
Our plant recommendation: Use for the planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planaria and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.
Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.
