5 Fantasy Blue Dream Shrimp

Product Description

Fantasy Blue Dream

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 or smaller. The USA Bred shrimp 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 their health. 

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:

Fantasy Blue Dream Shrimps

Thank you for the beautiful blue shrimps! They arrived alive and active! We enjoyed watching them daily!

J
Jamie Boswell
By far the best company in the US to purchase shrimp.

Purchased 10 Fantasy Blue Dream (USA breed). They spent an extra 24 hours stuck in our local Beaufort, SC post office but were absolutely fine when I unboxed them. Did a 5-hour drip acclimation and all are alive and thriving today over a month later. PS: we now have several Blue Dream babies in the tank!

William Edwards
Extremely satisfied

Ordered 10 of the fantasy blue shrimp and received 12! Drip acclimated them and everyone is doing well, no casualties. Will definitely be ordering from FlipAquatics again in the future!
