The striking cerulean blue coloration of this dream blue velvet shrimp adds
elegance and a soothing ambiance to any aquarium set-up! These shrimp look
stunning, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch! They are very active and
breed very quickly. These are the same species as red cherry shrimp and neon
yellow shrimp (Neocaridina davidi, formerly Neocaridina heteropoda). Care
requirements for blue velvet shrimp are essentially the same as red cherry
shrimp, and they are just as prolific. We generally ship young adult shrimp
that are already of breeding age. These are freshwater shrimp and are very
popular for planted tanks and community tanks. Many people use them in large
aquariums for waste management and algae control. Some younger shrimp have not
reached their full potential yet and will become a bright blue color as long
as they are comfortable in the tank. RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: – pH level
range: 6.5 to 7.5 – Temperature range: 72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit – Water
type: Soft or hard, as long as it remains stable – Recommended Aquatic Arts
tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Neon Yellow Shrimp, Amano
Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Mystery Snails,
Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-
aggressive fish. – Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for – similar to
other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live
aquatic plants (such as java moss, willow hygro, green cabomba, etc.). This is
because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on
the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
