Blue Dreams are among the most popular Neocaridina in the Shrimp hobby due to their sapphire translucent blue coloration. We offer these Blue Dreams on behalf of a local breeder. They have been maintained in our own tanks for at least 2 months for observation and quality determination. We see that these are generally mid to high grades on average. These are in limited supply due to the overall popularity of Blue Dreams. Please note that Blue Dreams should not be confused with Blue Diamonds, Blue Jelly, Blue Cobalts, etc.

These Blue Dreams are a brighter blue compared to our Cobalt Blues, and thus can be kept in both light and somewhat dark substrates with a planted tank.
