5 Black Rose Shrimp

Black Rose Shrimp

You will receive five (5) Black Rose shrimp. The black rose are a Neocaridina shrimp and are very hardy in our experience. They are bred from dwarf chocolate shrimp to have a deep dark black color throughout. An absolute beautiful aquarium shrimp. Our imported shrimp are usually larger in size than what we usually send. They will be ready to breed right away and could even be shipped with eggs. We promise you will not be disappoint with Flip Aquatics shrimp because we guarantee them healthy. 

With such amazing coloration, it is hard to believe that Black Rose are actually very hardy. In our experience, they have been one of our hardiest shrimp making them easy to keep. For a beginner or experience hobbyist, the black rose shrimp is a great option. 

Black Rose Neocaridina are one of our absolute favorite shrimp. The color intensity of black is unlike that of any other shrimp we have kept.  They resemble a Taiwan bee shrimp called the Black King Kong. The only difference is they are a Neocaridina species which makes them much easier to keep and breed.

The ONLY seller selling black shrimp !

It’s hard to capture on film but this is the only seller I can find that sells ACTUAL black shrimp. Many sellers claim they have black rose but the shrimp are muddy brown, even “high quality black rose”. When I saw the sale for black rose I knew I had to grab some and I’m glad it wasn’t a scam. Once they colored up I could see the beautiful black on these shrimp.

Shipping was fast (2 days I think, it’s been a month since I’ve gotten them) but only 2 died in transport. Unfortunate but it happens. All the other shrimp were active and eager to eat.

(Duckweed in the pics is from my fish tank, not the bag)

Received my order of Black Rose Shrimp all alive and healthy! I love the coloring and the fact that they are larger than expected. They are in their new home for almost a week now and cross fingers, continue to thrive! Will definitely order more neocardinias. Green Jade soon, and some golden...
