These will be shrimp that didn't meet our expectations but still healthy active shrimp. Great shrimp if you think you might want to try this amazing hobby and don't want to spend a lot. Colors can be clear or patterns could be off from our other shrimp we sell. Many will com from experiments that didn't produce the results that we hoped for. These will be Neocaridina heteropoda varieties.

 I have kept them in a pH range from 6.0 to 8.0, soft and hard water, temperatures from 72F to 84F and in many different soils like ADA Aquasoil and normal gravel. It is common knowledge that the Neos live in almost any freshwater aquarium given that the tank is habitable and does not contain predators of course. Some have even reported putting them in ponds and in filterless tanks which I dont recommend however. In other words, the  Neocaridina Shrimp is the hardiest shrimp species in the freshwater aquarium shrimp hobby.

    Shrimp arrived in excellent condition, the employees waited until a snowstorm was done before mailing to ensure safe arrival, and modified my order to add additional items I forgot. Great service and excellent shrimp!

    Shrimp all arrived healthy and active, even after a long (and hot) journey to Southern California. I'm so please with the many different colors of shrimp that came, as I just started a tank and was looking for variety. I was also please to see that they were juveniles, so I'll get to watch them grow along with my tank. They even threw in one extra shrimp for free! Very pleased!
