24K Golden Backline shrimp come from the genus Neocaridina and they are a colour morph out of the cherry red shrimp. The coloration of these shrimp is exceptional. The ideal parameters for keep these shrimp are the same as our other Neocaridina shrimp. As the name implies, this is a yellow shrimp with a golden line down its back. There are different grades and variations of the Yellow Shrimp but the Goldenback is considered the higher grade. The 24K variety is even higher grade than the Goldenback and can be characterized by the bright yellow racing stripe going down the Shrimp’s Back.

The Neocaridina Shrimp is undoubtedly the most popular shrimp in the hobby due to the relatively easy ability to breed as well as their ability to live in many different water parameters. Currently, we house three big colonies of yellow shrimp, namely 24K Golden Backline and normal Yellow. The higher the grade Yellow, the deeper yellow the shrimp will be. So, a normal yellow grade shrimp will be mostly yellow while an 24K Golden Backline grade shrimp will completely yellow with no flaws, and a golden backline.

Provide a variety of leaf litter for the shrimp to graze on. Their primary food is the micro-organisms that grows on the submerged leaves. A natural environment with leaf litter, mosses and plants provides the shrimp with everything they need for a staple diet. Feeding commercial foods should be seen giving a treat, not a regular meal. Feed sparingly. Feed fresh leaves such as spinach, nettles and dandelion.

Live Arrival Guarantee:
Should a shrimp die during transport, we will refund the cost of this shrimp. In such a case please inform us within an hour of delivery with a picture of the dead shrimp. If there was extensive damage to the packaging, we would be grateful for a picture of the box as well. Alternatively we will reship at the buyers expense

Please acclimatize them slowly in a container over a period of several hours, mixing your tank water with the water they came in, slowly increasing (drip with airline) the amount of tank water until you have a mixture of 1/3 transport and 2/3 tank water. After that net them out and put them into their new home. It is normal for the shrimp to lose a little colour during transport. Shrimp will lose some colour due to transport, but will colour up after acclimating to their new homes
