These Neocardinia Shrimp are 100% homebred in Chicago!

These Clear/Wild-type shrimp are "culls" from either our black rose, red cherry, orange pumpkin, or blue diamond shrimp tanks and are a great option for first-time shrimp keepers who don't want to spend a ton of money on high-grade shrimp, or for those who don't care about quality or color and just want some super effective algae cleaners!

These shrimp have been bred in our own personal aquariums, so they are well-adjusted to local Chicago tap water.

Recommended Parameters:

  • Ph:¬†6.5-8.0 (Ours:¬† 7.4)
  • Gh:¬†7 to 15 (Ours: 7-8)
  • Kh:¬†¬†2 to 10 (Ours: 2-4)
  • TDS:¬†180 to 400 (Ours: 200-250)
  • Temp:¬†68F to 80F (Ours: 74-78)
  • Tank Size: Minimum 2 Gallons (5 Shrimp per Gallon should be fine)

Shrimp are scavengers that feed continually. They require little feeding in a well-established aquarium containing algae, biofilm, or decaying plant matter. They thrive in heavily planted setups with lots of shelter and hiding spots. A heavily planted tank is definitely a must if you plan on keeping fish with the shrimp, to allow them to feel safe and secure, especially after a molt, and to allow their offspring to hide from any potential predators (your fish). Some fish may try to eat their young, or even the adults themselves, so please be cautious when adding them to a tank with fish. We find that they do best in shrimp and snail-only tanks.

NOTE: You may receive un-sexed juvenile shrimp, instead of adult shrimp, as they generally ship and adapt to new environments better. This widely depends on our current stock in our cull tank. We may add an extra 1-2 shrimp in case of DOAs (Dead On Arrivals). Any extra shrimp given are not covered by our Live Arrival Guarantee Policy.

Arrived healthy, alive, and with extras

The shrimp arrived in a small, well packaged box. When I took them out they were a bit frazzled from shipping but otherwise completely fine. I drip acclimated them for a few hours and dropped them in, and they immediately started exploring and grazing in their new home. Noticed zero deaths so far so great job!
