Chocolate Shrimp are a darkly beautiful addition to any aquarium! They are also called Black Cherry Shrimps because of their dark brown coloration, which makes them an eye-catching addition to any aquarium environment.
We ship breeding-age shrimp to our customers. All Chocolate Shrimp can thrive in almost any freshwater aquarium because they are so adaptable. Many people use them in large aquariums for waste management and algae control, and they're especially popular in planted tanks and community tanks. For as long as they're happy in the tank, some of the younger shrimp will develop a deep brown color. The deepest browns are made possible by the use of low-intensity lighting and a dark substrate.
