Blue Velvet Neocaridina shrimp are light blue color in color and were created from Red Rili Neocaridina. These shrimp offer another beautiful blue variation to any Neocaridina tank.
Blue Velvet shrimp when berried carry green colored eggs. They thrive any in general Neocaridina parameters with a pH above 7. Any inert substrate will work in their tank. Providing natural cover and surface area for biofilm to grow on with woods, leaves, and cones will be beneficial for these shrimp and their offspring. Mosses and other live plants should be included in their tank setup. They will eat any shrimp specific manufactured foods, biofilm, and algae.
We keep our Blue Velvets in a tank with a Matten Filter, pool filtered sand, natural woods, and plants. We use RO/DI water remineralized with Salty Shrimp GH/KH+ to a TDS of 150-200. We feed these shrimp Shrimp King and Glasgarten foods as well as Northfin Veggie.
