We have kept Sakura Yellow Shrimp in a wide array of water parameters with great success. Though they are extremely adaptable and will thrive in a PH of 6.4 to 8, we have found that the optimum pH is between 6.8 and 7.5. Water temperature can be anywhere from 68° to 80° (Fahrenheit), but the fastest breeding occurs at about 76° F. If you plan to breed the shrimp, you will NEED to have a sponge prefilter on your filter intake to prevent the shrimp from being sucked in.
