Photo credit goes to Nico Nic from Germany - Thank you for the amazing picture of these Caridina Babaulti sp. Zebra Striped!
Caridina Babaulti is a diverse group of shrimp. Since there is a lack of scientific research done on these shrimp, there aren't very good classifications. What we do know is that the majority of shrimp within this species come from India.
Zebra striped Caridina Babaulti are absolute stunning shrimp. They are a wild color form and breed easily in freshwater. They are hardy and are a great alternative to Neocaridina shrimp.
The care for Zebra striped Babaulti shrimp is the same as most Caridina species. They do not require special attention and tend to be accepting of a multitude of water parameters including Neocaridina parameters. Although, we suggest keeping parameters close to what we keep them in:
Each shrimp was like a work of art. Beautiful bright colors, very healthy. The blue bolt was slightly smaller than I expected but he’s doing great. And the purple snail is amazingly gorgeous. Just ordered more!!!
Ordered 10, received 12 with one DOA. No big deal, I knew that these guys were a bit sensitive to the shipping process. Happily I've had them a week and there have been no deaths since! I even spotted a berried female! I'm never disappointed with the quality from Flip. Thank you, Tyler, for lovingly packing my order!
This is the first time having these type of shrimp. Their behavior is very docile and shy. We love them!
Ordered 6 of these guys and sadly 4 of them died. The reason? Despite USPS saying they delivered it on Friday, they actually delivered them on Saturday. Pretty sure that they sat in the truck overnight in nice hot 80+ evening in Houston and then nice 90+ day time temperature. The deceased looked like they had just died too, so thanks USPS for lying and doing an awful job as always. Despite all that, the two that made it are adjusting well. They're very beautiful little guys and I definitely would like more in the future.
We are so sorry to hear you had some losses! We have a 100% live arrival guarantee on all of our livestock so please email us at email@example.com so we can help you with this order!
