Good day! Blue Pearl Shrimp is another member of the Atv family>
The morph of blue necardine is affected by the environment and nutrition. Ideally, the blue pearl is a pale blue color, but due to the influence of external factors, its color can vary from yellowish to saturated blue tones.
Sometimes small reddish spots or light brown lines appear on the body, extending from the bottom of the body to the top of the shrimp. Females are larger than males and their color is more saturated. In males, the belly is somewhat narrower than in females and they do not have a saddle on their backs.
In neocardines aquariums can live up to two years.
Like other representatives of invertebrates, the Blue Pearl is not demanding on the conditions of detention, but you need to maintain cleanliness in the aquarium. The temperature of the water should be within 18-28 degrees Celsius, the water is clear and the pH should be within 6.5 – 7.5.
You can add a blue pearl to a common aquarium in which peaceful and small aquarium fish (danios, rhodostomoses, neons, terntions, guppies, swordtails, rasboros and barbs) live. Dense planting of plants and the presence of snags and stones in the aquarium is welcomed. This will provide pets with the necessary amount of algae.
The water in the shrimp tank must be clean and constantly run through the filter.
I do not recommend keeping these invertebrates with aggressive fish, such as tsikhlazomami, battles and large catfish, as they like to eat shrimp. The recommended volume of the shrimp should be between 10-30 liters, since in smaller aquariums it will be difficult for you to achieve biological balance and even harder to maintain it.
Shrimps move around the aquarium and constantly crawl around in the ground in search of something edible. In the shrimp also the presence of mosses is recommended, you can even Javanese.
Do not allow copper to enter the shrimp since it is toxic to any shrimp. The type of aquarium substrate should be standard, which is used for shrimp.
Contain a blue pearl in a small group of up to 20 individuals.
Healthy shrimps are renowned for their friendly and peaceful nature. These shrimps are eaten almost everything that can be found in the aquarium and that gives an aquarist. If there is a shortage of feed, then the shrimp will begin to actively eat algae and biological film.
You can feed your pets with special shrimp food, flaky and granulated dry food. So that the remnants of food do not rot and the shrimps do not overeat, they must be fed constantly at the same time and in small doses.
Mature blue pearl becomes six to eight weeks of age. With good conditions and with an adequate ratio of males and females in the aquarium, the invertebrate group will begin to actively proliferate.
In females, the brown saddle becomes clearly visible and about 50 eggs will appear in the belly, the gestation period of which is a couple of weeks. These shrimp have excellent reproductive performance.
This suggests that after one party of young stock is born, the shrimp is ready to nurse the next one.
A blue pearl is considered a viviparous shrimp and its young does not have a larva stage, and small shrimps are like adults from birth. The young growth is white, and as it gets older it turns blue.
Sometimes small specks may appear on the shells. If you are waiting for the offspring of shrimp, then it is advisable to cover the suction holes of the filter with a finely porous material so that the trifle does not get inside the filter. If you have sufficient skills, then Blue neocardin superbly crosses to other shrimps of various color variations.
The resulting brood will receive the color of the individual that had stronger genes.
