    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.

    Never Again!

    I received my order about 12 days after ordering it only for the shrimp to be infested with parasites but the Black ones were red and brown, the Blue Diamonds were black and blue rili, and the Green Jade were almost black and also has red spots, there was one green Jade. I had to spend more money to get the treatment that the shrimp needed to survive and more than half of them died anyway. They have Zero customer service skills and they need to work on communicating with the customer I had to get on Instagram to get a response.

    Black Rose and Jade issues

    The Sunkist Orange were healthy and vibrant. The yellow golden backs had 5 die, but they were promptly replaced without any issues. Was very happy with those two. The Green Jade gad a parasite on the side. I had to seperate it and remove it. Then placed it in quarantine tank. It is now back in with others in new tank. The Black Rose are a nightmare. Several had a a worm attached to the sides feeding off them. Some also had paradites on there heads. I quarantined them immediately. I gave them a salt dip that removed the parasites on the heads. I then separated the ones with worms and placed them in a hospital tank. The other in a quarantine tank. I then removed each worm on them and waited. I lost 5 of them due to the above issues. The rest are looking healthy and have 4 more days in quarantine before going in brand new tank that is cycled. I gave three stars due no issues replacing yellow goldrnbacks and good communication. But was disappointed that they varied to blame me fir the issue. All tanks being used were cycled a water conditions were perfect. The only thing ever in those tanks were betas. The hospital tank never had shrimp in it. The shrimp tanks were new and cycled with bettas.
