Care requirements for these shrimp are close to those for Sakura Red Cherry shrimp.  When kept in high quality water that is maintained within the recommended water parameters, these shrimp may grow into a large, beautiful colony!   As with all dwarf shrimp, a colony of Black Carbon shrimp works as a very effective cleaning crew for your tanks, cleaning up algae and waste.
