Bloody Mary shrimp are jewels that are among the most underappreciated shrimp in the hobby as they are often confused with or overshadowed by the more commonly known Cherry Shrimp. Hobbyists should take special note that Bloody Mary are not a grade of Cherry Shrimp. To our knowledge, Bloody Mary’s are a different selectively bred line of Neocaridina shrimp, best differentiated by having translucent red shell as opposed to “painted” red shell for Cherries. We also observe dark vibrant red (hence the “bloody”) in Bloody Mary Shrimp whereas Cherries have an orange undertone to their redness.
However, as people selectively breed Bloody Mary for fuller shells, they both appear “painted” and thus are even harder to differentiate. Our Bloody Mary shrimp at the highest grades maintain a ruby red to dark red outer shell between individuals. These are highly resilient, prolific and look phenomenal in both light or dark substrates.
