Green Jades are the relatively newer selectively bred Neocaridina available to the hobby. We offer these Green Jades 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 grades on average and are not part of our own Green Jade line.

You should note that Green Jades are overall not as stable compared to other Neocaridina and there are varieties of green hues that may suit your preferences more. These Green Jades range from brown-green to yellow-green and are typically on the darker end for hue. Thus, please be advised of this fact if you are looking for a brighter yellow-green that others may offer. As these are darker Green Jades, we recommend a light to brown substrate, with non-dark green plants such as buces so that they are showcased better.
