  • Product Description

    Bloody Mary Shrimp are fascinating shrimp with bright red color, they are another strain selectively bred from Chocolate shrimp. Unlike Fire red cherry shrimp, which have red opaque coloration, Bloody Marys are translucent with bright red tissues.

    CARING - Bloody Mary Shrimp are easy to care for as they can adapt to a wide range of water parameters, they can be kept in either soft or hard water. We recommend keeping them in hard water with a gH of at least 8 for them to show their best color. Aquarium should be fully cycled before introducing any shrimp. There should be no trace of Ammonia and Nitrite, Nitrate under 25ppm. Weekly water change of 10-20% is suggested to keep the nitrate low. Feed only 2-3 times a week as overfeeding will cause shrimp death.

    BREEDING - Breeding Bloody Mary Shrimp is fairly easy, if there is a male and female in the aquarium, they will breed. Female shrimp will carry the eggs for about 30 days until they are hatched to miniature size of their parents. It is important to have a well established aquarium in order for the shrimplets to survive as they can only consume biofilms until they grow older. We recommend to only keep one strain of Neocaridina shrimp per tank because of crossbreeding, which will revert the offsprings back to wild color.

    1. Adult sized

      These shrimps that I received were big and are already adults. It would had been nicer if they came a little younger so they have more life in them. The red is really dark. One didn't make it probably because of age. But overall, I still recommend them. To me they still look better than painted fire reds. If they were a tad lighter, it would had been perfect. But I wouldn't complain.

      Packaging was amazing. the added moss really help the shrimps have something to cling on to.

    4. quality shrimp

      The shrimp arrived alive and well. the whole batch is still very active and eating well on 15th Sep 2017

    5. awesome shrimp

      I've bought from this site two other times (Pure red lines and painted fire reds). A total of three times I've ordered from here and I've had a grand total of zero DoA. Packing is great and moreover, the shrimp are great quality and healthy. They came at a good size as well with most of them being adults (good for them to start breeding quickly).

      Overall, this review isn't just for this product, but the site as a whole.

      If anyone reading this is hesitant to order shrimp online, then this is definitely a great place to start. 5/5 for basically everything.
