5 Fantasy Blue Dream Shrimp

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:

Quality Products!!!!!!

Great quality product! Love that there are acclamation directions and a sticker and Swedish Fish candy for my 7 year old. It’s his aquarium he is all about the hobbie! We ended up with extra shrimp because every shrimp shipped was alive and well!

Fantasy Blue Dream Shrimp

This was my first time ordering from Flip Aquatics. The shrimp arrived within two days. All five of the shrimp were very active upon arrival. After drip acclimation the newbies did exceptionally well in their new surroundings. The extra shrimp (which was a larger shrimp) arrived DOA, but it had molted during transport & did not have a complete molt. No fault of the sender. Very happy with the color of the juveniles. The breather bag worked perfect! Nice packaging. I have purchased more already. Good experience with this seller!


I ordered these guys along with two others from here (1 red pinto shrimp - mixed, 1 tangerine tiger) and I'll never be ordering from another site again! They were incredibly well packaged so they wouldn't get thrown around and even came with a little instruction guide on how to properly acclimate them, which I appreciate as a fairly new shrimp owner! They also sent me three extra shrimp on top of the ones I ordered, and all of them arrived alive and healthy! The colors are beautiful as well! They had netting in their bags so they had something to hold onto during shipping as well! Really above and beyond!!

You'll love them

I buy shrimp with a little skepticism on them looking like they do in the photo. I was pleasantly surprised, and I think you will be too. Very healthy and active shrimp. Looking forward to placing another order sometime.

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

This was my first ever live order! I received my shrimp on March 8th. All 6 arrived alive and very active! One of the shrimp was even already berried! I have had them exactly 2 weeks. I just spotted my first baby shrimp today! As well as another berried female! So I know for a fact I have 2 females and at least one male! Which is just perfect! 10/10 recommend.
