Black Diamond Chocolate Shrimp features a stunning dark color that must be seen to be believed! Known to some as Black Tiger Shrimp, these stunning animals are a deep black-brown color, which immediately draws all eyes to them in any aquarium set-up!
Black Diamond Chocolate shrimp are a selectively bred variant of Neocaridina davidi – the same species as Sakura Red Cherry shrimp. Care requirements for these shrimp are close to those for Sakura Red Cherry shrimp. When kept in high-quality water that is maintained within the recommended water parameters, these shrimp may grow into a large, beautiful colony! As with all dwarf shrimp, a colony of Black Diamond shrimp work as a very effective cleaning crew for your tanks, cleaning up algae and waste.
We generally ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age and range from 1/2 to 3/4 inch in length.
