Blue Diamond Neocardinia Shrimp are a selectively bred color mutation of Chocolate Shrimp. These shrimp have a deep blue coloration and are slightly darker in blue as compared to Blue Dream Neocardinia Shrimp. We recommend that your aquarium is well-established and cycled before adding any shrimp, as shrimp can be very sensitive to high ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. We recommend frequent small water changes, rather than large water changes, as shrimp can be sensitive to drastic changes in parameters.

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 will likely receive un-sexed juvenile shrimp, instead of adult shrimp, as they generally ship and adapt to new environments better. 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.

Shrimp are PERFECT!

We received all of our shrimp alive with a few extra (Blue Diamond Shrimp) and they acclimated to our water very well without any deaths. The like to hide but we are able to count them through the day in different areas of the tank and they are very happy. We are very happy!
