ABOUT THESE SHRIMP
They have a beautiful rich red color which really showcases under good lighting. Dark substrate really makes them stand out, as do green plants. The females are more colorful than the males, as males are typically a bit more translucent, but they all have beautiful pigmentation.
These shrimp are very active and very easy to keep. As long as you avoid extreme changes in water chemisty, PH and temperatures, these shrimp should thrive and form a wonderful colony that you can enjoy.
Under good lighting, the color is outstanding with some displaying a contrasting red strip down their backs. The females are more colorful than the males, but all of them are stunning, especially in a planted aquarium where the green contrasts with their colours.
They currently live in our tanks with the following parameters:
- PH: 7.0
- Temperature: 74F
- GH: 6
- KH: 3
- Because these shrimp are bright colored and only about 1 to 1.5in in length at full adult stage, it is not advisable to place them in community tanks with fish that can eat them. Fish like molly's and angelfish will consider them a food source.
- We ship a mix of males and fermales, as well as a combination of juveniles and "near adults". Thus, the shrimp will be anywhere from half an inch to an inch in size.
- It may takes a few days for the shrimp to truly colour up, and they'll get quite vivid as they mature.
It is highly recommended to select Priority shipping to minimize risk of dead loss.
Please note, Our DOA policy applies ONLY to shrimp shipped via next day courier. Please see our Shipping and Returns Policy for Shrimp orders.
