    DESCRIPTION

    Scientific Name: Neocaridina. Davidi
    Common Name: Bloody Mary Shrimp
    Fully Grown Size: 1.6 inches (4cm)

    Bloody Mary is unique compared to Red Cherry Shrimp. Bloody Mary has a shorter rostrum than Red Cherry Shrimp and is red-fleshed instead of having a red shell. Bloody mary can be translucent red or can be as dark as a Painted Fire Shrimp.  Bloody Mary has amazing coloration and is beautiful in every way. 

    Bloody Mary comes from the Neocaridina Davidi Line and has been selectively bred to get its red flesh 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.

    Bloody Mary 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.  Bloody Mary 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. 

    Blood Mary 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.

    Dead on Arrival Policy

    We guarantee live arrivals 100%.

    Although it's rare that shrimps will arrive DOA, it does occur due to the process of shipping and the amount of stress it puts on the shrimps so we always recommend overnight shipping. In an event of an DOA, a refund or reshipment will be issued for only the DOA (not including the shipping cost).

    To Claim DOA: 

    1. You must send a picture of the DOA in an unopened bag with 2 hours of delivery to hello@billyboiaquatics.com.
    2. Send an additional picture of the DOA outside of the bag, clear enough to count if more than one.

    Great little shrimp!

    Shrimp were packed very well! Glad to say they were all swimming about when I opened the box, and they were ready to explore once in the tank.

    Their coloring was a bit pale in the bag. Well it makes sense… It’s probably really stressful having to be moved around constantly while being shipped. They did turn a wonderful red once they settled in.

    Bonus—It was a really nice surprise to see an additional little fella with my order of 5.

    This will be my go-to shop for any future purchases. Thank you for a wonderful shopping experience, Billy Boi Aquatics!

    Excellent shrimp

    Over All excellent shrimp quality color, well fed on arrival a couple extra they were smaller than I expected, and took longer to get with no word on when they would be delivered. I decided to order shrimp, because half of the ones I was buying from the stores will die within a day or two. It’s been two weeks and I have not lost one shrimp that I know of. Very pleased with my decision. I wish there was a little more communication on delivery details. I normally buy 10 shrimp from the store half are dead within a week. And the quality is questionable. I ordered 20. I got a couple extra not one has died and the quality of the worst one From Billy is the quality of the best I will get from the pet store. Better price as well! I will order again when needed try to include more shipping details please

    Shrimp arrived in mostly good condition

    I bought 5 shrimp, got 5 live shrimp and somehow had an extra decapitated corpse in there as well. The 5 survivors are all thriving and reproducing well.

    2 star for 2/10 shrimp

    I emailed already about my complaint and never heard back. The majority of my shrimp were black, not bloody. Cheap, but not worth the savings. Thanks.
