My Red Tigers have been doing fairly well, though others in the US have reported difficulties with this Tiger variety (based on a recent forum discussion). Obtained from quality stock and acclimated properly, I think they are as hardy as regular tigers and maybe even like Neocaridinas. I also have not had bacterial outbreaks with them, and hopefully will not experience it.
I keep my Red Tigers in a 10 gallon tank with ADA Aquasoil I, peacock moss, and a sponge filter. They are fed Ebita Breed brand and Mosura brand food, including BioPlus and Tonic Pro. Red Tigers are quite a nice shrimp and hopefully US shrimp keepers will have more success with them.
p.s. - Happy New Year!
