$2 per bunch of anacharis. A bunch has 3-5 strands that are 5+" long. Java moss is $2.50 for a golf ball sized clump.

They won't fill the tanks, but once they grow they will fill out and make the tanks look more full.

I grow mine at 72 F under 15w CFLs. It grows fast and I haven't had to use co2 or ferts at all. I have grown it in 80 water just fine. I doubt that it needs co2 and ferts in warmer water, it might just not grow as fast because of the heat. But then again, my meaning of heat could be different from what you read.

If they are the only thing in the tank, they don't need any hiding spots. They like to eat shrimp specific foods like Fluval Shrimp Granules. They also eat some other foods that aren't just for shrimp, like algae wafers. If they are in a tank with fish and want to breed them, I would provide lots of hiding spots. Java moss and other bushy plants are perfect. If they're in a tank with fish and you don't want to breed them, don't provide hiding spots and the shrimp babies will be eaten.
