GarnelenhausWhite Pearl shrimp, Snowball shrimp
The White Pearl dwarf shrimp is a whitish variant of 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. Their name comes from the snow white eggs berried females carry under their abdomen.

The White Pearl dwarf shrimp (Neocaridina palmata var. white), 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.

White 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 White Pearl shrimp will have everything they need.

When White Pearl shrimp have adapted to their environment and when they are happy, the females will relase up to 30 almost fully developed shrimplets every 5 to 6 weeks. In well-planted tanks with lots of places to hide, some of the young shrimp will even grow up in the presence of fish.
Our practical experience has shown that this number of surviving shrimpoffspring 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 White Pearl shrimp tanks are thus not really a problem.


Our tip for keeping White Pearl shrimp!
White 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.

Süße kleine Biester. Super verpackt, pünktlich und aktiv angekommen. Haben sich dem Altbesatz sofort mutig vorgestellt, statt sich zu verkriechen.
Danke!

Gesunde und muntere Tiere bekommen. Bin wirklich sehr zufrieden. Die ersten Tage ein wenig ruhiger, aber jetzt entdeckungsfreudige Tiere.
