The dwarf shrimp Neocaridina heteropoda is one of the most easy to keep dwarf shrimps. It is absolutely undemanding regarding water chemistry and tolerates water temperatures between 10 and 30°C. Moreover it is very easy to breed. The species attains a maximum length of about 3 cm and is a perfect aquarium animal.
Neocaridina heteropoda appears in a great variety of colours in the wild already. So the breeders tried already very soon to breed pure colour sports. This is how the attractive Neocaridina heteropoda Yellow was developed. Currently we can offer them in perfect condition from breeders in Hongkong.
For our customers: the animals have code 485202 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Neocaridina: means “new caridina”. Caridina is another genus of shrimp. heteropoda: means “with different types of feet”.
Suggestion of a common name: Yellow dwarf shrimp
