    DESCRIPTION

    Description:
    Scientific Name: Neocaridina. Davidi
    Common Name: Green Jade Shrimp, Green Emerald Shrimp
    Fully Grown Size: 1.6 inches (4cm)

    Green Jade Shrimps are one of the newest Neocaridina to come out. Their cool color pops in lighter substrates. Their color ranges from light lime green to dark green. Although dark green is the highest grade for Green Jades, some people prefer a lighter green color so the green is most visible.

    When Green Jades are stressed, not adjusted to the tank, or even just be fine can turn blue or have a blue hue. We advise to give them some time and they should revert back to green. This process doesn't happen in a day and should be given a few days to adjust its colors.

    Green Jade comes from the Neocaridina Davidi Line and has been selectively bred to get its green color. Although there are multiple colors of neocaridina in the same line, it is not recommended to mix them to keep the genes to be the purist it can be. If you do however mix the colors, you will most likely end up with wild brown colored offsprings.

    Green Jade like all neocaridinas are slightly harder to sex until they mature. Once they mature, the female will have a curved underbelly and the male will have a straight underbelly.

    These are popular among the shrimp hobby and are great for people getting into the hobby. A general rule of thumb of keeping shrimps is 10 shrimps per gallon. Green Jades are non-aggressive and spend most of their time eating algae and biofilm off plants, glass, and substrate. They make excellent clean up crews for aquascape tanks. 

    Green Jade are easy to care for as they require remineralized RO water or tap. If you are using tap, keep in mind to check for any harmful metals or chemicals in the water as all tap water is different and some aren't safe to use. When using fertilizer, make sure it does not contain copper as it is harmful to the shrimp’s health.

    The shrimps you will receive will be sub adults to adults which translate to 1.5cm to 2.0cm.
