We are extremely proud to offer our very own Aquatic Arts Bred line of the stunning Sky Blue Velvet Shrimp! 

The striking sky blue coloration of these Sky Blue Velvet Shrimp adds elegance and a soothing ambiance to any aquarium set-up!  These shrimp look stunning, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch!  They are very active and breed quickly.  These are the same species as Red Cherry Shrimp and Neon Yellow Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi, formerly Neocaridina heteropoda).  Care requirements for Sky Blue Velvet Shrimp are essentially the same as Red Cherry Shrimp, and they are just as prolific.

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. 

    These shrimp are young (around 1/6 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. 

    Some of the younger shrimp have not reached their full potential yet and will become brighter in color as long as they are comfortable in the tank.  Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the brightest coloration.
