    Shrimp are shipped Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only and overnight temperatures need to be 5C or more. Any less than this and we'll hold your order until it's warm enough. It's always safety first for livestock.

    These shrimp are drop shipped direct from our wholesaler to you so will arrive separately to any other goods you order from our website.

    Shrimp (Neocaridina Denticulata) are a popular choice for both beginner and experienced aquarium enthusiasts due to their adaptability and ease of care. These vibrant, social, and peaceful shrimp can cohabit with various other shrimp species, including Crystal Shrimp, Taiwan Bee, and Amano Shrimp. Known for their prolific breeding, Cherry Shrimp add both colour and activity to any tank.

    Important Considerations for Colour Maintenance

    To maintain the distinct coloration of Shrimp, it is advisable to keep different colour varieties separate to prevent interbreeding. Interbreeding can result in brown or wild-type offspring by the second generation. Some colour combinations may not produce wild-types but can still alter the intensity and hue over time. Notable combinations include:

    • Orange Sakura + Orange Rili
    • Bloody Mary + Black Rose + Chocolate
    • Blue Jelly + Blue Rili + Blue Velvet + Fantasy Blue

    For consistent colour maintenance across generations, we recommend not mixing these varieties.

    Ideal Water Parameters

    • pH: 6.0-7.8
    • Temperature: 19-23°C (66-73°F)
    • TDS (Total Dissolved Solids): 120-250

    Note: While shrimp are highly adaptable and can thrive in a wide range of water conditions, they do best within the parameters listed above. They can live in most tap water conditions, making them versatile and resilient inhabitants of your aquarium.

    Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

    Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

    We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
