Details

There is now another green variety of the very rewarding Neocaridina davidi! This variety is very new and rare!

The Blue-Green Emerald Shrimp is the new green Neocaridina davidi in town!  This is one of the newest forms in the ever-growing varieties of this hardy, easy-to-keep dwarf shrimp species. Boasting a beautiful deep green coloration (especially with dark substrate), this variety is sure to become very popular among shrimp keepers. Some specimens are largely solid green while others have green-blue coloration, and they are all remarkable!

Care for this shrimp is identical to all varieties of Cherry, Neon Yellow, Blue Velvet, Sapphire, Blue/Black Diamond, Chocolate, Snowball, and Rili Shrimp. It is comparably durable as well.  

This shrimp is a scavenger and is very useful in planted and nano aquariums. The bulk of its diet is biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter so it will work diligently to clean up the waste in any aquarium. It feeds constantly, so it displays constant activity. In a less mature aquarium, it should be fed high quality flake and mini pellet dry foods with high algae/spirulina/plant content.
