Bamboo Shrimp, also known as Singapore Flower Shrimp, are a truly fascinating species due to their lively personalities and their ability to quickly change color based on their mood and/or environment.  Their colors tend to range from tan to dark brown, but once they become comfortable in their surroundings, they often turn a vibrant red or a beautiful cerulean blue!  These are one of the largest freshwater shrimp, ranging in length from 1.5 to 4 inches.  This listing is for juvenile Bamboo Shrimp that are about 1 inch in length, so they are smaller in size than the young adult Bamboo Shrimp that come in an order from the Large Bamboo Shrimp listing.

These shrimp are known to reproduce only in saltwater (this is almost always the case).  They are easy to keep in a home freshwater aquarium, as no special equipment is needed for them to thrive.

Bamboo Shrimp are peaceful and will get along great with any other critters in your aquarium, as long as the others aren't aggressive towards them.  Like dwarf shrimp, they eat algae and leftover fish food (as well as invertebrate food pellets).

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
