These fascinating shrimp normally grow to about 1 to 1.5 inches long. The largest females max out at 2 inches.

Both Dream Blue Velvet and Red Cherry shrimp are the same species: Neocaridina davidi. For this reason they need to be kept in separate tanks to keep them breeding true to color.

I aggressively cull shrimp with the least color to keep my shrimp the deepest reds and blues possible.
