  • Product Description

    Dream Blue Velvet Shrimp are also called Fantasy Blue Velvet or Blue Dreams. They are the highest grade of Blue Velvet Shrimp with deep sapphire blue color. The ease of care and their stunning color make them one of the most sought after shrimps in the hobby.

    CARING - Dream 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 Dream 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. So happy!

      All of my shrimp arrived alive and in great health, even after UPS lost the package for two days. I could not be happier with my order, and especially the superior level of customer service I received through the process - from before I even ordered until after they were enjoying a meal in my tank, I felt like SoShrimp was there for me to make sure I had an excellent experience. on 1st Jun 2020

    2. All arrived healthy

      All of the shrimp arrived healthy, and continue to thrive. Not one death. Gorgeous color, and active, healthy little shrimp. The two extras are greatly appreciated! on 1st Jun 2020

    3. Great experience

      Great communication from seller, had 10+1 shipped w/ just the one DOA so it was perfect. Shrimp are very active and appear healthy. on 20th May 2020

    4. The BEST!

      Cool shrimp! Cool moss with shrimp! Great price! Fast shipping and no DOA!
      The BEST!

    5. Excellent quality and Service

      I received my order of 5 and got a +1, the shipping was fantastic, you can tell they take great care of their shrimp and do the best they can so they arrive well and healthy.

      Sadly, many of mine died a few days after, but it seems it was due to a difference in the water conditions with my current tank vs where they are held.

      I reached out and SoShrimp was very kind and provided lots of good knowledge so more survive the next time I purchase, which I certainly will.

      Totally recommended

    6. Arrived safely

      Took a few days to arrive (maybe slow at the post office because of covid) and were cold when they came in; one of the females dropped a bunch of eggs. But they all recovered and are zipping around happily in their new tank. Ordered 4 blue velvet and 3 dream blue velvet, and we got an extra dream blue. Lovely shrimp. on 13th Apr 2020

    7. JUST GREAT!!!

      JUST GREAT!!! Healthy active shrimp with GREAT COLOR!!! FAST SHIPPING WITH GREAT PACKAGING AND No DOA’s. DRIP ACCLIMATED FOR 2 hours and all survived moving into their new 29 gallon planted tank. After 1 week, 1 shrimp has died but that’s it. And hey, it happens. So, I ordered and paid for 20 but have 21 after 1 died because SoShrimp sent 2 extra. JUST GREAT!!! on 21st Jan 2020

    8. Unhappy with these

      Ordered 10, received 11. All arrived alive, however as the juvies matured they looked more like carbon rili's than dream blue velvets. Healthy shrimp but less than satisfied with the colors. on 17th Jan 2020

    9. arrived active

      I ordered 5 Dream Blue Velvet shrimp. They were shipped well packaged and quickly. All arrived quite active and healthy, plus their deep blue color is beautiful. I will certainly order from soshrimp.com again. on 12th Jan 2020

    10. Beautiful blue shrimp!

      I ordered 5 dream blue shrimp and received 6 which was nice! I was happy that the heating pack was still warm when they were delivered. They are a beautiful deep blue including their legs. All appear young and healthy. They have been actively grazing and exploring in my planted aquarium since I received them five days ago. I would definitely order from SoShrimp again in the future! on 12th Jan 2020
