    Common Name: Black Rose Shrimp, Black Shrimp
    Fully Grown Size: 1.6 inches (4cm)

    Black Rose Shrimps are dark black shrimps. Their shiny black shell reminds me of dark knights. Some people may confuse them with chocolate but genetically they are different. There isn’t really a grading for black roses because they are all black. They may differ in different shades of black but are mostly dark.

    Black Rose comes from the Neocaridina Davidi Line and has been selectively bred to get its black 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.

    Black Rose 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.  Black Rose 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. 

    Black Rose 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 is 1/2 to 3/4 inches (1.3 to 1.9cm).

    40 black rose shrimp

    Shrimp looked dark red which I expected they are all dead 17 days later, it is a hard loss after spending this much money and still unsure why they died since my water was good before and after the deaths but after over a year of shrimp experience it is not uncommon to have a colony die off so soon, I am looking forward to go for black rose shrimp again soon

    amazing!

    I bought 20. They came in at breeding age. One was even berried! They are extremely healthy and a very nice black. Some when you shine a light on them are more dark dark brown or blue, but ultimately they appear completely black under normal circumstances. They're so beautiful and active and fun to watch.

    beautiful healthy shrimp

    The black rose shrimp I purchased were all healthy and acclimated well to my heavily planted 10 gallon tank. I keep the temp between 73 and 75 degrees.
