Neon Yellow Shrimp are the highest grade of Yellow shrimp. These have yellow stripe on their back, hence, they are also called Golden Back Yellow shrimp.
CARING - Neon Yellow 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 Ammonia and Nitrite, Nitrate should be 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 Neon Yellow 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.

First of all, the packaging that the shrimp came in is done with the best care that I have seen compared to other online livestock deliveries. UPS mixed up my order and sent it to some post office far from my house without ever having delivered the package. I contacted SoShrimp and they took care of it. They contacted the post office and had them redeliver to my house. Unfortunately, (due to the post office's fault) the package had to sit in storage for an extra two days. Despite that though, and due to the great packaging, the shrimp arrived in good condition. Great service - will definitely come back for more shrimp we needed. Wilmer on 22nd Jul 2020
They all died within a few days. I have other shrimp in the same tank and have not lost a single one of those. Unknown on 30th Jun 2020

23 of 20 arrived safe and sound with a nice range of larger mid-age to one little guy that looked like it was a couple weeks old. Arrived well packed and a day early. The bright yellow definitely brightens up a tank! Mike on 7th Apr 2019
My shrimp all arrived alive with beautiful, bright coloring. They are all thriving in my tank. Highly recommend SoShrimp! Shea Galloway on 6th Mar 2019
All three shrimp are just lovely, healthy and good sized. One of my favorite colors for these guys!
Shipped very quickly and packaged carefully and with consideration for the cold. Becky on 12th Jan 2019
I bought 3 of them just to add some different color to my painted fire community. But I’m so impressed that those yellow ones are definitely bright and outstanding. Like them very much and probably will get more. Unknown on 20th Oct 2018
All 10 doing well 8 days later. I Use RODI water mineralized to 200 TDS with shrimp king GhKh+. Keith on 29th Jun 2018
I ordered 20 of these beauties; received 22. All were alive and well when the package arrived. These shrimps adapted to the tank very well and their colors became more vibrant as they settled in and grew. D.L. on 24th Jun 2018
