5 Fantasy Blue Dream Shrimp

Product Description

Please Note: These shrimp are still going through our 30 Day Quarantine. If ordered, they will ship between April 15th to 17th

You will receive five (5) fantasy blue dream shrimp. Whether you buy imported and USA bred blues, they both have amazing coloration. Our imported fantasy blues are usually larger in size. Our USA Bred fantasy blue shrimp average in size around a half of an inch. The USA Bred shrimp usually acclimate better and have a higher survival rate compared to imported shrimp.  Either option, you will not be disappoint with Flip Aquatics shrimp because we guarantee healthy. 

Fantasy blues are a great beginner aquarium shrimp and they have amazing coloration. They are one of the hardiest shrimp we keep in the shrimp room. 

Despite the beautiful appearance of fantasy blues, the genetics behind the color can be pretty confusing. Blue dream is the name most hobbyists use for all shrimp with a deep blue coloration. While most blue dream pet shrimp look similar, they come from a number of different genetic lines and backgrounds. Our blue dreams are a fantastic blue color and breed fairly true. They are almost solid blue and black in coloration while some do show the rili pattern.

Blue dreams show best color while being kept on black substrate. Why this occurs is due to the fact that shrimp in general try to blend into their environment. Therefore, blue shrimp will darken in an attempt to have natural camouflage. On white substrate they will try to bleach their color and be more transparent. It is ideal to keep blue dreams on a darker substrate due to fact.

The care for blue dreams is typical of most Neocaridina species. They do not require special attention and tend to be accepting of a multitude of water parameters. Although, we suggest keeping parameters close to what we keep them in:

Alive on arrival a day early

Got just what I ordered, 5 Fantasy Blue Dreams. The order came a day early and all looked healthy. Since arrival I see a max of 2 at a time in my heavily planted 15 gallon nano tank. Beautiful deep blue color. Based on this first time order with Flip Aquatics I would give them the highest rating,.

I'm happy

5 shrimp arrived alive and seem to have survived the first 72 hrs in the tank. I can only ever find 2 or 3 at a time but no bodies so that's good! And thanks for the sample

Half of my colony died

I have a 5 gallon Fluval tank with Fluval Stratum. I have a planted+ tank light (LED). The aquarium has amazon sword throughout the back and Staurogyne repens for carpet. The ammonia is 0, nitrites are 0, and nitrates are nearly undetectable. The tanks temp is 76 degrees. I keep re-testing the water as I have about 1 shrimp die a day since getting them. I can't detect anything that would kill them. I use RODI water with GH/KH+ (Salty Shrimp, Shrimp Minerals). I ordered 20 of these Fantasy Blue's and have about 9 left. One was dead on arrival but I didn't bother saying anything since they sent two extra.

I'm just going to toss some Purigen in there and hope it's something I can't test for. There's nothing else I can do.

If I could detect something that would place the blame on me, I wouldn't have left this review. The Amano shrimp that Flip Aquatics sold me were healthy and didn't die off like this at all.

I hope all of you buying them have better luck than I did. :-/
