Place a dozen in a devoted cycled tank.

Make sure the only filtration is a sponge filter, and try to keep some plants in it if you can. (Even if just duckweed)

Feed them well, and you should have some shrimp in a month or two..


They breed fast, but their offspring grow very slow and are born tiny. Good luck.

(If you water is soft, you may want to add some crushed coral or powdered dolomite. I'm pretty sure PH isn't too important, but aim for around 7.0 ph, and some hardness. They need calcium for their shells.
