13 In stock

The Mixed Neocaridina Shrimp will be a nice mix of different colors and you cannot not pick and choose what colors go into the packs. When the individual colors of Neocaridina breed they do not always breed 100% true, so some colors in the mix pack may be uniquely different. When you keep Mixed colors of Neocaridina Shrimp in the same tank, they will breed and the babies will most likely no be very colorful. You can ,with selective breeding, create new lines of shrimp, but it is a long process of selective breeding to create new lines. We recommend keeping the Neocaridina Shrimp as individual colors and keep selecting the best colors for future breeders. This will insure the line for the color variant will always be brightly colored. 

Neocaridina shrimp are very popular and come in many different color forms. They are easy to breed in a home aquarium and fun to keep . All the different colors of Neocaridina shrimp that we sell are bred at our breeding faculty here at Imperial Tropicals. You will have much more success keeping shrimp that are domestically raised, compared to imported shrimp.
