The Blue Rili shr imp is a new breed from Asia. It is a color variation of the Red Rili shrimp. Its head and tail area is just as intensely red, but the body color is not transparent, but of varying intensity bluish. It is the precursor of the Blue Jelly shrimp, in which the red color parts have been more or less completely bred away. The offspring of the Blue Rili shrimp are hereditary, but the color distribution may vary somewhat. Due to their adaptability and relative robustness makes them an ideal shrimp for beginners in shrimp keeping. The females of the Blue Rili shrimp grow up to 2.5 inches in size and look beefier than the slightly smaller males.
The Blue Rili is closely related to the Red Sakura, the Red Rili and the Blue Jelly, and therefore these four color varieties of Neocaridina davidi can be kept together in the aquarium without undesirable wild crossbreeding. Furthermore, when socializing, it is important to make sure that the water values required by the different shrimp are approximately the same. Since the Blue Rili shrimp is a group animal, we recommend a starting stock of 10 to 20 shrimp. These dwarf shrimp are very peaceful animals, and they socialize wonderfully with other aquarium inhabitants such as small peaceful fish, crayfish, snails and mussels . Blue Rili shrimp are also very suitable for the freshwater shrimp aquaterrarium, provided the water section holds a minimum of 10 liters.
Since the Blue Rili shrimp is not only a scavenger, but also an omnivore, it has no special feeding requirements. Twice a week Blue Rili shrimp should be provided with a suitable protein food , otherwise they prefer mainly vegetable food. Brown foliage as permanent food should be basically present as in any invertebrate aquarium.
The Blue Rili shrimp is very easy to breed. If it finds good conditions, the reproduction goes practically by itself. The female releases 20 to 40 fully developed baby shrimp after a gestation period of three to four weeks, which can grow large in the parent aquarium.
Our food recommendation: The soft Mainfeed Softpads from NatureHolic are designed for daily feeding. They contain all the nutrients shrimp need for shell development, egg formation and growth. During the production we pay attention to a gentle and environmentally friendly production, which preserves the vitamins and other valuable ingredients as much as possible.
Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planaria and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.
Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.
