Blue Shrimp

These popular, Blue Shrimp are great for people wanting to start out keeping and breeding shrimp. They are a light blue with what looks like a pearl inside of them so look great in a planted aquarium. They love to live in grass or moss so we recommend having a planted tropical aquarium.

Approx. size: 2cm
Maximum size: 5cm
Origin: Indonesia
Ideal number kept together: 4+

Water conditions
pH: 6.5 – 7.5
Temperature: 20– 28 °C

Ease of care
Easy. Live plants and hiding places are needed. Do not use any treatment that contains Copper. Please always read the label of the aquarium treatment. Also, Shrimp minerals should be added to the water to improve health, at every water change.

Mainly algae & vegetation. Shrimp pellets are good for them however they shouldn't have too much protein as it can cause health issues in the Shrimp.

Species only is best for breeding however can go with small fish such as Tetras or Rasbora. They thrive in a planted aquarium with hiding places.

Breeding/ Sex
Easy, no extra work is necessary. Females are brighter and slightly larger than the males.

They can live to anything from 1-2 years in perfect conditions.
