Neocaridina shrimp Blue Jelly

Do not really know from where all these colors of shrimps ... but since then they are working ... seems to have no end. This time they have achieved a stunning color, that has nothing to do with the unique blue neocaridinas we had so far, the blue pearl, that to see them blue eyes had to put vizcos.

They are purely neocaridinas, but if they have inherited their adaptability, the recommended parameters are:

PH: 6.5 to 7.5


PH Range: 6.5-7.5
Temperature range: 15 º C-30 º C (this means that we should be able to have them in the house without heating thermostat)
GH: 8-10
KH: 3-5
Life expectancy: 1 to 2 Years

Difficulty: Easy.

As mentioned above do not really know the origin, but is believed to come from taiwan, blue rillis descendants, results of intensive breeding, her body is electric blue, dont really look blue.

They are very easy to breed, so they have become famous color among fans. Shrimp need clean water, so it is highly recommended to ensure weekly water changes of 20%. We should not worry too much about feeding the blue jelly, really a rule of thumb is if you eat what we put in half an hour, we are doing well. Then I leave an article related to feeding neocaridinas prawns.

The reproduction of blue jelly is very simple as we said, gestation lasts about 25 days and each shrimp zoeae let go about 50 each time.

The distinction between the sexes is not simply the rounded belly and females with eggs is the best indicator that we have.

The blue jelly prawns are extremely sociable, we maintain with the other species of shrimp.

One thing to keep in mind and not only with them is that metals are EXTREMELY toxic to shrimp aquarium, so careful with fertilizers and certain medications.
