Orange Eye Black Devils

These caridina shrimp are a blue based shrimp, but high grades are mostly solid black with orange eyes. Their black shell will reflect the light, making it look like a colorful oil slick over top of the black shell, and when they get to full mature adult, can produce nice flecks of metallic, mostly on the head. You will receive a mix of grades (from full black high grade to lapis patterns seen in photos), but if you're interested in all high grades, please email me and we can work something out depending on availability. 

This colony produces around half solid black shrimp and the other half what are called Orange Eye Black/Blue Lapis. The Lapis are the ones with the blueish/clear pinto-like patterns on the back. 

We suggest using Ada Amazonia or another high quality shrimp soil for these shrimp. They can be a little more sensitive than basic caridina shrimp, but given the right parameters, they will create a happy and healthy colony. Your parameters should fall in the following range:

pH: 5.6-6.4
gH: 4-6 
kH: 0
Temperature (optimal): 68-74°F

Quantity: 5 Shrimp

Beautiful right out of the bag!

I was nervous getting my tank ready as I've had bad luck with more tricky Caridina. These guys are doing great in my well seasoned, parameter tuned water and looked great right after drip acclimating them. Once they've settled, going on a week now, they look even better but they were deep purple and vibrant just getting into the tank!

I will probably get a second group!! My pics don't do it justice, which is frustrating when I wanna show them off!

Beautiful Shrimp

Received 12 OEBD, all alive and in great condition. Packaging was superb. As the description says, some are true black while others have a bluish tone. A couple had the oil slick iridescent color. Absolutely beautiful shrimp. Thank you, Lucky Aquatics!
