Shrimps are the inhabitant of streams and lakes encompassed through thickly pressed plants and a rough area when living in natural habitat. Whereas in captive conditions or in aquarium they flourish in dense plantation in aquarium that have high number of concealing fissure along with greenery; similarly we can incorporate some spaces and pathways in aquarium as they can snack the green moss and algae. The shrimps consume the plant rely garbage that makes the practical opportunity in their eating routine. For the hard surface we can provide the small stones to replicate the rocky material for which shrimps are commonly used to.
