Neon Yellow Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi) - 1/2" to 3/4"
Add some color and excitement to your aquarium with Neon Yellow Shrimp! These shrimp look great, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch! They are very active and breed quickly. We generally ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age.
Neon Yellow Shrimp are fairly adaptable creatures that can live in almost any freshwater aquarium with the right water parameters. 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. These yellow shrimp carry the "Goldenback" gene, which produces high quality yellow shrimp with a bright golden stripe down the middle of the back. Some of this type is included in almost every order, and we will continue to ship a larger amount of Goldenback Yellow Shrimp as our stock improves.
RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:
- 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, 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 and 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.
