You will receive Green Jade shrimp that are either bred by us or quarantined for over 30 days. The green jade shrimp will have a range of green coloration due to their diverse family tree. The shrimp will be healthy and near breeding age.
Green jades come from the chocolate shrimp family tree which leads to a lot of selective breeding. The chocolate shrimp family is the most diverse shrimp family tree in the Neocaridina genus. Since Green jades are bred from chocolate shrimp, they will produce a multitude of colors and grades. Therefore, selective breeding will need to be done to maintain the fantastic green color.
The care of green jade shrimp is typical of the Neocaridina genus. They breed regularly in our standard Neocaridina water parameter. We suggest keeping them on light substrate or else they will completely blend into the substrate making it hard to see them. We suggest using pool filter sand as it is what we use in the majority of our breeding tanks with great success.
All 5 + doa buffer were alive both before and after them residing in my tank. After acclimating and added to a heavily planted tank, they quickly adjusted to the environment and started exploring. Love the dark green they add to the tank. Looking forward to the next shrimpies I will be ordering.
