You will receive ten (10) orange pumpkin shrimp. The orange pumpkin is an orange variation of the cherry shrimp and stems from the Neocaridina genus. They are often referred to as Sunkist shrimp or Orange Cherry shrimp. They are fairly easy to breed and care for. The orange pumpkin is usually shipped as an young adult if imported or a sub-adult if USA Bred. The shrimp you will receive will be between a 1/4 of an inch and 3/4 of an inch.
The orange pumpkin Neocaridina shrimp is a stable strain that will produce only orange shrimp. The orange color contrast really well in a planted aquarium making these freshwater shrimp desirable to planted aquarium enthusiasts. They breed regularly which makes them one of the most prolific breeders in the shrimp hobby. We keep and breed these shrimp in the following conditions:

They are great no deaths colored up right away. I have yellow and Emeralds so kinda working my way thru the colors! My first time keeping shrimp successfully and these guys have quality shrimp. What you see is what you get which isn’t always the case elsewhere right?! I love their wide selection of botanicals too. Affordable hardscape. They have a lot for me to choose from and I watch them on YouTube so I know their practices and can trust them to purchase fish from sheimp and snails too
All arrived alive. Very tiny though. Two extra were super tiny .
Shipping was very fast, they were only in a bag for 2 days. I received 12 adult shrimp and two tiny babies. All of them arrived alive and active, and they have brightened up really nice over the last week. However I only received females, they all have saddles. Hopefully at least one of the juveniles is male. Regardless, I am very happy with my order
They came in good condition. Thanks.
They arrived in great shape and are still doing great!!!
