Details

These shrimp are locally-bred indoors with true level 1 UV sterilization. These specimens are also treated and observed for 30 days before being sold.

Golden Back Yellow shrimp are a higher grade of Neon Yellow Shrimp that feature a brilliant, neon yellow "racing" stripe down the back.  Their gorgeous coloration draws the eye directly to these dynamic little shrimp and adds charm and cheer to any aquarium set-up.  These shrimp look great, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch!  They are very active and breed quickly. 

These shrimp are young (around 1/4 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. 

Younger shrimp may have not reached their full potential yet and will grow into a bright yellow color as long as they are comfortable in the tank.  Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the most vibrant yellows.

 

 ** IMPORTANT: Please Choose A Pack:
Standard shrimp are our highest quality, locally-bred shrimp with consistent color and pattern.
Variant shrimp may show some variability in pattern/color quality and may vary in consistency.
