Add elegant earth tones to your aquarium with the darkly beautiful Chocolate Shrimp! Also known by the name Black Cherry Shrimp, these shrimp possess a rich, deep brown color that makes them a unique and alluring addition to any aquarium!
We ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age.  All Chocolate Shrimp are extremely adaptable creatures that can live in almost any freshwater aquarium. They are very popular for planted tanks and community tanks, and many people use them in large aquariums for waste management and algae control. Some of the younger shrimp have not reached their full potential yet and will grow into a rich brown color as long as they are comfortable in the tank. Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the deepest browns.



  • pH level range: 6.0 - 8.0
  • Temperature range: 65° - 80° F (18° - 27° C)    
  • Water type: Soft to hard
  • Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Red Cherry Shrimp, Crystal Black Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish such as Danios, Rasboras, and some types of Guppies.
  • Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - similar to other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, baby tears, green cabomba, etc). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
