Dazzling is the best word we can think of to describe the Black Diamond shrimp. Known to some as Blue Wizard shrimp or Blue Diamond Neos, these stunning animals are a royal, jewel-toned blue (although some are an extremely dark, almost black color or a very dark magenta). Their extraordinary color immediately draws all eyes to them in any aquarium set-up!

Black Diamond shrimp are a selectively bred variant of Neocaridina heteropoda - the same species as Sakura Red Cherry shrimp. Care requirements for these shrimp are close to those for Sakura Red Cherry shrimp. When kept in high quality water that is maintained within the recommended water parameters, these shrimp may grow into large, beautiful colored colony!

Each bag contains at least 5 Black Diamond shrimp, but we usually ship extras. We ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age, ranging from 1/2 to 1 inch long. You will also get some strands of Java Moss, which is a fantastic plant to keep in shrimp tanks. It grows very quickly and the shrimp love it.

- PH level range: 6.5 to 8.0
- Temperature range: 64 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Soft or hard, as long as it remains stable
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, Amano Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish.
- Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - similar to other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, baby tears, green cabomba, etc.). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.

Hi all, my tanks a little dirty at the moment and needs some cleaning, but don't worry everyone's happy and healthy (never had a disease related death in this tank). The water is tinted due to the real driftwood in the tank, and all plants all live and real. The plants you see floating of the top are called Duckweed, although they are good for the aquarium, they multiply like crazy and are a hassle to clean up. The duckweed you see right now is actually AFTER the cleaning. The sand tends to get dirty due to the color but what you see if actually just crumbs left by the plants and the driftwood when the shrimp and fish would pick at them (it is nothing to worry about). If you have any questions feel free to ask!
