Bred from the same wild type as Sakura Red Cherry Shrimp, the Blue Velvet Shrimp is a color variant of the Neocaridina davidi (formerly Neocaridina heteropoda) species. Little is known about how this variant came to be bred, but they are slowly gaining in popularity within the dwarf shrimp hobby due to their stunning coloration and ease of care. Their care requirements are very similar to Red Cherry Shrimp (the most popular type of dwarf shrimp in the aquarium hobby), and they are just as hardy and easy to breed. This makes these shrimp perfectly suitable for beginners looking to keep dwarf shrimp. 

These are freshwater shrimp and can live in almost any freshwater aquarium due to their extremely adaptable nature. They are very popular for planted tanks and community tanks, and many people use them in large aquariums for waste management and algae control. They breed very quickly, forming a colony that works as a very effective cleaning crew and enhances any aquarium with their beautiful color.

These shrimp grow to a maximum size of 2 inches in length, although this will only be attained by the largest females. The most common maximum length is about 1.5 inches for females, and 1.25 inches for males.
