Aquatic Arts Tank-Bred Green Babaulti Shrimp (Caridina cf. babaulti)


We're excited to introduce our Aquatic Arts Tank-Bred Green Babaulti Shrimp, meticulously cultivated at our state-of-the-art facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. Over nearly two years of dedicated effort, we've perfected the breeding process to bring you these exceptional shrimp.


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


The Green Babaulti Shrimp (Caridina cf. babaulti) is a captivating dwarf shrimp species that's highly sought-after for its rarity in the United States. What sets ours apart is that they're tank-bred, ensuring consistent coloration and reliability.

Also known as the Chameleon or Rainbow shrimp due to their remarkable color-changing ability, these shrimp can display a mesmerizing array of hues including green, cyan, orange, and more as they mature. The shrimp we will send you may not be showing their true colors yet as these young shrimp take some time as they mature to show their true color potential. Do not be alarmed if the shrimp you receive at first may not show a lot of color just yet, they will burst into color as they get a little older and mature in your tank.

Our tank-bred Green Babaulti Shrimp thrive in aquarium settings and are known for their prolific breeding behavior, making them a delightful addition to any setup. Although their fry are smaller and grow more slowly compared to other shrimp species, they flourish in mature and dedicated dwarf shrimp aquariums.

While there's some debate about their breeding preferences concerning water hardness, they generally adapt well to a variety of conditions, provided extremes are avoided. Being a Caridina species, they do not interbreed with Neocaridina species, ensuring the integrity of their lineage.

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these shrimp play a vital role in maintaining aquarium ecosystems. As efficient scavengers, they tirelessly feed on biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter, contributing to the overall cleanliness of the tank.

Care Guidelines:

  • Diet: Scavenger that feeds continually. Requires very little feeding in a well-established aquarium containing algae, biofilm, or decaying plant matter. In less mature setups, high-quality dry foods with high plant content can be fed multiple times daily. Our Aquatic Arts Snowflake Premium Shrimp Food and Aquatic Arts Pollen Granules Premium Shrimp Food are excellent supplements. You can try all three with our Shrimp Food Sample Pack.
  • Botanicals: Introducing botanicals to the aquarium can provide additional benefits for your Green Babaulti Shrimp, such as natural tannins and biofilm. They can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your aquascape. We offer these botanicals in a shrimp sample pack.
  • Aquascape: Creating a suitable aquascape with plenty of hiding spots and plant coverage is essential for the well-being of your Green Babaulti Shrimp. Utilize driftwood, rocks, and live plants to mimic their natural habitat and promote their overall health and happiness.
  • Social behavior: Peaceful. A small group can continually replenish and grow its population.
  • Origin: Bred at our facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, but wild populations are indigenous to India
  • Average adult size: 1 - 1.5 inches (2.5 - 3.8 cm)
  • Average purchase size: 1/6 - 3/4 inch (.4 - 1.9 cm)

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.
