Plants and fish found in the same waters as the cherry shrimp? - (Dec/28/2009 )
This is probably going to be a very unusual question to the people on this forum.
I have a small fish tank that I am going to use to keep cherry shrimps, or neocaridina heteropoda. The thing is, I would like to put fish and plants in there that are native to the same waters as this species. These have to be small fish, preferably fish that live in schools, but this is not neccessary. As for plants, I'm looking for plants that don't grow high and can form a carpet.
I've done some research and many internet sources list Taiwan or South-East Asia as these shrimp's natural distribution, but some say they can be found only in Taiwan and some say other parts of South-East Asia as well. I know they've also been introduced to places like Hawaii by humans but looking for either their natural distribution or a place close to where they naturally live.
I've asked this question on several aquarium forums but none of them came up with an answer for me. I'm hoping I've come to the right place here.
Thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to any information you can give me.
No idea but maybe the writer of this blog can help you out.
Thanks, I think he probably can. But do you know how I can contact him? And may I ask how you found that?
On the link next to this text you find a envelop that is the link to mail him.

How I found that?
As most of the times with google and as I was as often curious of this information cou;d be found on the web I invested a little more time as normal. But more time gives most of the time more result .
That little envelope was there to email that blog to a friend. It wasn't a link to his e-mail adress but after a little looking around I found it, and sent him quite an extensive e-mail. I'm not sure though if he can help because there is nothing there really regarding cherry shrimp but he does seem to be interested in Asian aquariums.
