Presentation of the blue velvet shrimp

The Neocaridina Heteropoda more commonly known as the blue velvet shrimp is very popular with aquarists for its dark blue color. This pretty shrimp native to Asia measures 2-3cm. Like most Neocaridina, it is best to avoid mixing varieties to preserve its blue color. To ensure the right balance, favor neutral soil and a minimum of 10 individuals in a 20-liter aquarium. It is also necessary to provide hiding places and many plants in the aquarium (Example: java moss) to avoid stressing them.


How to feed the Neocaridina blue velvet?

Like the red cherry , the blue velvet is a detritivore, that is to say, it feeds on small algae, dead plants, but also fish carcasses. She also appreciates dry food (granules, flakes, etc.) but also live food such as brine shrimp.


Reproduction of the blue velvet shrimp

The female has a larger abdomen than that of the male. The female reproduces only after a moult and when the ovarian sac is developed (orange yellow spot behind the head). It develops at sexual maturity (3-4 months of life). After mating, her ovarian sac descends under her abdomen and eggs form in it (coloring varies depending on the maintenance conditions). Then, the female will oxygenate the eggs by stirring them for 25 days of incubation on average. Once the juveniles are formed, the female expels them from her abdomen.

Water parameters of blue velvet shrimp
