Bloody Mary shrimps are scavengers and will feed on algae and microorganisms living in plants and other organic material, but their diet will usually have to be supplemented. A high-quality shrimp food, such as Shrimp King can be used as a staple but is not required. They also love blanched vegetables occasionally, frozen foods and other sinking fish foods.
A minimum tank size of 10L should be enough to keep a colony. All aquariums, including Bloody Mary shrimp tanks, should be filtered and cycled. A sponge filter or a regular filter with a pre-filter sponge is recommended for when keeping dwarf shrimp, as their fry are tiny and can easily get sucked up by filters. All shrimp will feel safest with plants or decor which provide hiding areas for them.
