We are extremely proud to offer our very own Aquatic Arts Bred line of the Painted Fire Red Shrimp! 


USA bred shrimp right in our facility means healthier shrimp that have never been shipped before and have grown up in our care from hatching. These shrimp will be hardier, will acclimate better to your tank, and you will be more successful with them because they will only go through the stress of shipping one time from their grow out tank to yours! These will be young shrimp, as young shrimp not only ship better, but they will adjust to new water parameters better than adults.


Painted Fire Red Grade Color:

  • Extremely Deep Red coloration with very little to no clear spots at all
  • Body and legs should be vastly red
  • Males can range from Sakura Grade to Painted Fire Grade


 ***Average purchase size: 1/6 - 3/4 inch (0.4 - 1.9 cm)***


Breeding shrimp is also a great way to help support your hobby! Neocaridina shrimp reproduce pretty quickly and the fry grow quickly when the conditions are just right for them. Help support your hobby by breeding shrimp and selling them!

Beyond just ordering the packs of shrimp, we also offer them in our combo boxes! 

This combo box is designed for optimal health, tank, and breeding conditions for your new Painted Fire Red Shrimp.

Start your shrimp tank the right way with this great deal! 


    These shrimp are young (around 1/6 inch to 3/4 inch in length), but will grow up to be 1 inch on average as fully grown adults. Young shrimp will ship and acclimate better to your aquarium. Just be weary when adding them to a tank with fish as some fish may find these young shrimp as food. 

    Some of the younger shrimp have not reached their full potential yet and will become brighter in color as long as they are comfortable in the tank.  Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the brightest coloration.


    What We Like About This Shrimp:
    • Healthier, hardier, and will adjust to your tank better than other shrimp
    • Impressive solid red coloration
    • Completely peaceful with all non-aggressive tankmates
    • Safe with all plants

                      For the safety of our animals, we only ship live fish, crabs, and select other inverts exclusively via UPS 1 Day Air.  If your order contains this item, you will only see UPS 1 Day Air as a shipping option during checkout.

                      UPS 1 Day is a description of the duration of time a shipment will spend in transit once it has been shipped. This does not guarantee the package will be shipped the same or next day from which the order was placed.

                      Shipping Schedule for this service

                      UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

                      Current Handling Time:

                      1-9 business days

                      Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

                      Shipping Rate

                      Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
