" Everything I have gotten from here is amazing! The Golden White Cloud Mountain minnows are sprightly and lovely, the low light plant bundle is growing nicely - very healthy! The wild-type neocardinas... swoon! Two are solid black and the rest are a beautiful mix of colors and spots. I adore Glass Grown Aquatics and HIGHLY recommend!"
-Melissa

The Wild Type Neocaridina Shrimp is very attractive in its own right. These Dwarf Shrimp usually has a semi-transparent hue, which can vary between red (cherry), yellow, blue, orange, green, maroon, dark brown, black, and white shades, sometimes accompanied by a light tan stripe along its back.

These varieties are resilient and sustainable, but wild form is the most durable.

These little guys are wonderful in the planted aquarium and will readily breed when ample food and shelter are available. They love to pick at algae and tiny microflora and grow about at least 3/4 to about an inch—females are bigger.

Average purchase size is 1/2 inch or so.

Dwarf Shrimp are best for peaceful community tanks with lots of tiny hiding spaces. You'll notice they will be a lot more active and display brighter coloring when they feel safe. Heavily plant your aquarium for best breeding!

  • Shrimp are not great with nippy or carnivorous fish such as Angelfish, Cichlids, Loaches. 
  • Otocinclus, Corydoras, Plecos, Tetras, Guppies, smaller Rasboras, and Celestial Danios are all great tank mates!
  • Females will be slightly larger than males, and will display stronger coloring.
  • These will come in a mix of sizes, coloration, and sex ratios are not guaranteed. You WILL, however, receive both sexes!
  • Ten+ indicates that you will receive an extra just in case of any accidents during shipment. Only ten are covered by the Live Arrival Guarantee.

Neocaridina are among the hardiest Dwarf shrimp species; nevertheless, you should take great care to cycle your tank well, and avoid ammonia and nitrate/nitrite spikes. Heavily planting your tank will help with this!

Our shrimp are used to hard Kansas water, and kept in Walstad tanks at room temperatures.

Neocaridina Shimp Parameters are as follows:

  • Ph: 6.5-8.0 (Ours: 6.8-7.8)
  • Kh: 2 to 10 (Ours: 3-5)
  • Gh: 7 to 15 (Ours: 7-8)
  • TDS: 180 to 400 (Ours: 200-350)
  • Temp: 65F to 80F (Ours: 68-74)
  • Tank Size: Minimum 1 Gallon per 5 Shrimp
I ship insulated with medicated water, and Purigen, by tracked and insured USPS Priority only, and use cool packs when needed.
Do consider purchasing a heat pack if the temperatures in your area are below 40 degrees!

Please arrange to pull these little guys right indoors once they arrive to your mailbox. USPS also has a free mail hold service on their website. Please utilize this service if no one can be home.

I bought 10, and they sent 12! All 12 survived the trip and acclimation and thrived! They’re cleaning my tank and munching on all the biofilm. Amazing, healthy little creatures!
