Beautiful, Happy, Healthy 24k Golden Yellow shrimp.
Neocaridina shrimp are the most popular type of colorful shrimp found in aquariums. Their vivid colors along with their relative ease to keep and breed make them a favorite of both new and older hobbyists.
The parameters we keep them at are approximately PH 7.0, TDS 250, GH 8-10, KH 3-6. They will survive and thrive in a wide range of water conditions. These conditions are often met by simply using your local tap water and treating with a dechlorinator.
Shrimp are peaceful scavengers that do best in tanks with only shrimp. While your fish may not actively harass/eat them, at least early on, shrimp will tend to hide when they see a fish they are unsure of overhead. Shrimp will spend most of their time foraging on the bottom of the tank, on decorations like wood and stone, and on plants and mosses. It is very important to not overfeed them as this can cause your water quality to deteriorate. Only feed them as much as they will consume in 2 hours. Any leftover food after that time should be removed.
Nice sized shrimp that were immediately active in their new home.
Healthy and high quality
Shrimp arrived promptly and healthy. After several poor experiences with typical import stock, I am thrilled to have these high quality shrimp, and at the same price point as my LFS low quality stock.
Golden Yellow Neos
All arrived alive and are actively exploring and eating. Just a beautiful yellow with that golden back stripe. As always, top-notch quality and just the best experience buying from Erik.
Very active and attractive little shrimp. Well packaged and no DOAs. Very happy with the shrimp - the plants and almond leaves are also very nice
