The Green JadeShrimp can be housed in many different water parameters. Just like the Red Cherry Shrimp, this species can be kept in a pH range from 6.0 to 8.0, soft and hard water, temperatures from 72F to 84F and in many different soils like ADA Aquasoil and normal gravel. When following water parameters for this species it may be best just to refer back to the parameters of the Red Cherry Shrimp species if you have successfully kept it.
The Green Jade Shrimp is extremely prolific, just like its red colored cousin, and will breed readily and virtually around the clock. Clean water and proper water parameters will ensure that this species breeds constantly. Females will have green colored eggs when pregnant. The saddle will also be green and the appearance of a saddle while there are eggs is a good sign that hatching is days away.
It is typically 30-45 days from pregnancy to hatching. Another way to tell is by the emergence of a new saddle when the female still has eggs. The emergence of the saddle is the indication that the female is prepared to have a new set of eggs and that the current eggs are close to hatching.
