Purple Zebra are a small dwarf shrimp species. These shrimp originate from Asia in freshwater to brackish streams. They thrive in brackish water conditions, but can live in freshwater conditions.

I Love These Little Guys

I've ordered them twice and each time they came well packaged, alive, and active. Delayed shipping because of cold weather shows the care they take with their animals - I appreciate this greatly. They are so very cute!

Beautiful, healthy shrimp!

I placed an order for Bloody Mary and Purple Zebra Shrimp. Order was received within a couple of days. All arrived (plus extras) alive as they were well packaged. Had some questions regarding water parameters and acclimation for the Purple Zebras and each email was answered immediately. Great company will be ordering from them again.

Cute!

I just got these in and they look great! They all survived and I think one of them is berried. Fantastic!
