This is my first time keeping shrimp or really any type of serious aquarium. I ordered 20 cherry shrimp, 24 were sent with two DOA giving me 22 to start. I quickly noticed that one or two of them were already berried. Over the first week or two, a handful died and since my tank is heavily planted it's really hard to say how many of the original shrimp survived. But after only a couple of weeks, I noticed that I had baby shrimp from one of the original berried shrimp. And now I think I'm already seeing a second batch of slightly younger babies. It's possible I already have dozens of babies throughout the tank despite there being a school of neon tetras alongside them. And if all that isn't already awesome I already have two and possibly three newly berried shrimp. Hopefully, in a couple of months, I'll have a fairly significant colony thriving. I couldn't be happier with the results so far.
Neocaridina Shrimp Starter Pack
I ordered the Orange Pumpkin 10 pack. It came with 12 young adults and 2 shrimplets. I lost 2 adults the first night, but none since then. The rest seem extremely healthy and very colorful.
My only gripe would be the sample food provided. The shrimp did not seem to take any, but my nerites loved the veggie. I was hoping for shrimp specific food.
I would highly recommend this starter pack to anyone wanting to start shrimp keeping!
All were alive on arrival and healthy look great too!
Great shrimp. Good prices. Only lost 2 in shipping and everyone of them are good that I ordered so far. Quick shipping and well packaged. I’d give him a omega Okada 6 stars if I could.
