Product Overview


English name: Blue Pearl

Scientific NameNeocaridina Heteropoda var. "Blue Pearl"

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 Pearl 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 Pearl 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.

    Received my shrimp about a week ago. They were packaged very well & are doing great. Ron was very helpful. My only problem is deciding which shrimp to put in my next tank!
