All the information in the combo and the fish store aquarium to buy will summarize what fish, shrimp, aquatic plants, substrate and food you need for the first tank. Help you save time, costs and know the timeline for the tank to grow clearly. Let's go into the details below.

Combo Tiny Besties.


Aquatic pets, especially shrimp, have become popular as attractive creatures to keep in aquariums. For those just starting out in the aquarium world and looking for little "many-legged friends", the Tiny Besties combo set offers a time and cost-saving solution.

Designed for a tank size of 30L, the Tiny Besties combo set includes Cherry Shrimps in a variety of colours, plus three ornamental plants. All the necessary "furnishings" for the tank are carefully prepared in the accompanying ACCESSORIES.

This package equips you with everything you need to set up and run your aquarium for a 14-day cycle, getting the tank ready to feed the shrimp. Whether you're new to aquarium keeping or a seasoned enthusiast, we'll walk you through the steps in detail.

Here's what you'll find in the Tiny Besties combo:



10 x Red cherry shrimp is a freshwater Shrimp that is incredibly peaceful and renowned for its algae-eating capabilities. Suitable for beginners and experienced aquarists. The life expectancy of most cherry shrimp is about one to two years in good rearing conditions.



1 x Driftwood Anubias - Anubias on Driftwood give a natural and aesthetic look to your tank while providing hiding spots for the shrimp.

1 x Ambulia on pot - Anubias are easy to care for and have no special requirements. They don't need a bright light or a lot of fertilizer. Anubias have rhizomes and roots that allow the plant to cling to solid objects like wood, rocks, or other aquarium decorations.

1 x Pennywort can help remove excess nutrients, toxins, and residues from the water. This helps to keep the water clean and is good for fish and shrimp. Pennywort produces oxygen during photosynthesis, which can help increase oxygen levels in the water. This is especially important in aquariums with high numbers of fish or shrimp.

1 x Java moss - Java moss is suitable for tanks containing all freshwater shrimp species. Fish and invertebrates eat plants, and bottom-dwelling fish are particularly fond of this plant.

Java moss is ideal for growing in tanks: cherry shrimp, crayfish, snails, angelfish, Cichlids, etc. This moss can be safely grown along with other aquatic plants without damaging it or interrupting its development.


1 x DYMAX SLIM FLO FILTER SF-120 - This high-quality filter ensures efficient water circulation and keeps the water environment clean for healthy shrimp.

1 x 2 KG Basalt gravel - Basalt gravel acts as a substrate, enhancing the sense of natural habitat and providing a solid substrate for plants.

1 x HEAT PLUS 25 - Heat Plus 25 helps maintain the ideal water temperature for shrimp, promoting their overall health.

1 x PRIME 325ml - Prime is essential for conditioning tap water and removing harmful chlorine or chloramine, ensuring a safe environment for shrimp.

1 x STABILITY 325ml - Stability supports the establishment of a beneficial bacterial population that contributes to a stable and balanced aquarium ecosystem.

1 x Snow Shrimp 50GR - Specialized shrimp feed provides a balanced diet, ensuring your “pets” receive the right nutrition.

1 x ALGAE WAFER 40 GR - Algae plate is a complementary feed option that compliments shrimp diets and promotes their health and growth.
