THESE ARE THE STARS OF THE “SHRIMP TANK” AT RAMSEY LEGACY MOVING
ORANGE SUNKIST SHRIMP
Orange Sunkist are bright shrimps that will make your tank pop. As in pop, you can see them from a far without a problem. Their striking color stands out against dark substrate. Orange Sunkist’s grade can vary from a dark saturated orange to a lighter orange.
Orange Sunkist come from the Neocaridina Davidi Line and have been selectively bred to get its orange 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.
Orange Sunkist’s 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. Orange Sunkist 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.
