The Blue Pearl dwarf shrimp is a blueish variant of the White Pearl shrimp (Neocaridina palmata). In nature, Neocaridina shrimp are distributed in China, Taiwan and Korea in small streams, ponds and flooded grassland and reedy areas near those waters.
Their basic body color is transparent to slightly milky with a beautiful light ice blue sheen, which sometimes even can turn into turquoise hues. All in all, the females are of a better color quality than the males, as is so often the case in Neocaridina shrimp.
The Blue Pearl dwarf shrimp (Neocaridina palmata var. blue pearl), like most freshwater shrimp, is an omnivore and will eat just about any food. The species is very peaceful and undemanding, other aquarium inhabitants have nothing to fear from them. You can easily keep them together with fish that do not predate on shrimp.
Blue Pearl shrimp do not have any special requirements regarding the aquarium decoration ... here you can use your imagination freely. The shrimp are happy with a little moss and driftwood ... and if there are some hiding-places like tubes or brown autumn leaves (oak or beech) in the tank, your Blue Pearl shrimp will have everything they need.
Our practical experience has shown that this number of surviving shrimp offspring is only realistic under the most optimal conditions. Usually, the shrimp will get berried every two to three months or so, and not all offspring will reach adulthood. Overpopulated Blue Pearl shrimp tanks are thus not really a problem.
Our tip for keeping Blue Pearl shrimp!
Blue Pearl shrimp feel the happiest when the pH is between 7.0 and 7.5, a total hardness of 5 -10° dGH (German hardness) and a carbonate hardness of 2 - 6° dKH (German hardness). The temperature should be between 18 and 24 ° C ... varied food (predominantly of vegetable origin, and frozen food fed sparingly) contributes to heathly, vital, happy shrimp.
