  • Product Description

    Blue Velvet Shrimp are selectively bred from Chocolate shrimp, originated from Taiwan. these are our regular grade blue velvet shrimp with light to dark blue color.

    CARING - Blue Velvet 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 Blue Velvet 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. Beautiful bright blue showcase shrimp

      The highlight of my tank are these lovely blue buggers. The buzz around keeping busy day in and out. I keep them with baby fish who are too small to make a snack out of them..a well planted tank with hiding spots and lots of food. I hope to make another purchase soon. I love em. on 2nd Jun 2020

      Shrimp arrived on time, tracking worked, everyone was alive. All during the pandemic. on 27th May 2020

    4. Healthiest Shrimp and Best Price on the Internet!

      I ordered 40 blue velvet shrimp and ALL of them came in alive and are thriving in their new tank. The quality of the shrimp is fantastic (these regular blue velvet look like what other sites label "dream" blue velvet). Also these were the cheapest by far compared to other online sellers of shrimp/fish. Couldn't be happier with the purchase!!! on 26th May 2020

    5. Arrived alive, perfectly packaged.

      Our shrimp arrived alive and well. The packaging was just right and the instructions for acclimating helped a ton. I would love to give 5 stars but my only slight issue is how long the orders take to fulfill. If they can manage to get shipping and delivery down to under 2 weeks I would gladly change this to 5 stars and will be ordering again. on 24th May 2020
