Product Overview


English name: Blue Dream

Scientific NameNeocaridina Heteropoda var. "Blue"

Origin: Selectively bred color mutation of Davidii Shrimp.

Size male/female: 0.8 inch / .9 in

Water temperature:68-78F

Water Parameters: pH 6.2 - 7.8

Breeding Rate: High

Behaviour: non-agressive

Difficulty: Easy


Breeding occurs about once every 2 months, they carry the eggs for about 3 weeks. Generation time is about 3-5 months, depending on the temperature. There will be no breeding if the temperature is too low. Breeding Blue Dream Shrimp is very easy as long as the tank water is clean and there are no harmful conditions. If this species is happy and healthy than it will breed readily, almost as fast as the Red Cherry Shrimp. Blue Dream Shrimp require virtually the exact same conditions as the Red Cherry Shrimp, Yellow Shrimp, and Snowball Shrimp.

Water Parameters

Blue Dream Shrimp prefers slightly alkaline to medium-hard water but are like other Neocaridina species in that they are easily adaptable to various conditions. Temperature can range from 68F-86F. Make sure that there is enough dissolved oxygen in the water if the water is warm.

Very rare and beautiful neo-cardinia shrimp. Care is the same as a cherry shrimp and just as prolific.

    Exactly what I expected.

    Interesting and personable little shrimps. They cling to my Water Wisteria and brush the debris off the leaves. They are like little plant janitors. One was extremely shy for about 3 days or so, was fearing sickness however is now more active, the others are relatively relaxed now exploring away from their safe little home base under the driftwood as well. 3 have also molted successfully at this time.

    They look happy in their new home. All arrived alive plus an extra one.So blue.
    A nice addition to one of my CRS tanks. I'm always happy with my purchases here at AlphaPB.

    All 7 (including the 1 extra free shrimp) arrived live and healthy, and have continued to stay alive in my tank. I am very happy with this purchase.

    These guys are great!

    I received a batch of these guys and they have been little troopers. The package was received during a cold snap so the bag was pretty cold and I feared the worst. But they were zooming around the bag as if nothing was wrong. After slowly acclimating them to my tank water, they got in and started feeding immediately.

    They are very blue! Translucent blue, with dense small blue spots. A few have larger blue spots similar to a Rili shrimp.

    Thanks, Ron for proving again that you are the best resource for shrimp hobbyists! Every one of my 14 Blue Dreams was just beautiful! Very lively and immediately started swimming around like little blue submarines. Thanks too for all the help on getting the water right for these guys.
