DELUXE Primary Colors Dwarf Shrimp Combo Pack (Painted Fire Red, Golden Back Yellow, and Dream Blue), Tank-Bred
Step up to the high-grade shrimp scene! This combo pack is perfect for small or large aquariums and is a great way to get three colors of shrimp without paying more for the individual shrimp! Both colors are vibrant and beautiful and stand out fantastically against plants or any other backdrop.
Both of these shrimp varieties belong to the same species (Neocaridina davidi, formerly Neocaridina heteropoda) and thrive within the same water parameters. Additionally, they will interbreed, and since they are shipped out as young adults, they will quickly breed in your tank. After some time breeding, these shrimp will form a colony that will work as a very effective cleaning crew for your tanks, earning their keep and cleaning up algae and detritus!
