Beginner shrimps for new keepers
Beginners may want to start out with these shrimps. With optimum conditions they can live 1 – 2 years.
Good starter shrimp for first time keepers are Cherry (many colours but red is the hardiest in my experience) and Rili (again red has been hardier).

Other good shrimp are Blue Jelly, Pearl and one of my favourites – the hardy Skunk or Rhino Horn shrimp.
