The only info I find on Mandarin shrimp is from Drsmith&Foster website.
So all I know they need about the same water spec as the cherry shrimp and grow about the same.
As anyone kept them here, Are they as peaceful?
what do you guys think?

IIRC - They are both Neocaridina, Just a different color. The care is identical.

My turn to +1. :hmm3grin2orange:

Yeah, relatively easy shrimp. Stable water, 76F is optimal for reproduction. Will eat just about anything that is dead.
