These little guys are beautiful! Even as tiny babies you can still see their lovely blue color. I ordered one group of 5 shrimp, and I was sent 6. All 6 were alive and well upon receiving them Friday morning. I carefully acclimated them to my tank, just as I would any other new fish. However, by Monday I had lost 2 of them. I'm not going to complain about the loss, as there is always a risk when putting aquatic animals through shipping and environment changes. I do not hold So Shrimp responsible for them dying. I believe that they did the best possible to package them nicely and get them to me in a timely manner. It has been a week today since I received them and the remaining 4 shrimp are thriving in my tank. I love trying to find them hiding in the leaves of the plants! They are so fun and beautiful to look at! Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and will order from them again if I have need in the future! email@example.com on 15th Sep 2017
I'm completely happy with my new shrimp. I ordered the Blue Velvet (5), and they came well pkgd, and quickly. All are doing very well after one week. I will definitely order from SoShrimp again! Thank you! Wendy on 12th May 2017
Ordered 10, received 11. All alive and energetic. Have ordered from Soshrimp before, and always get an extra and havent suffered a loss from shipping yet. Good packaging, good price, highly recommend. Pat K on 15th Apr 2017
All arrived safely. They seem to be doing fine. At times I see 4. Blue Velvet. Look good -----Jeff Jeff Biela on 28th Mar 2017
Arrived healthy and active. Color was light blue and transparent. Seller assured they will become more vibrant when matured and females will be darker. Can't wait to see them fully grow and their true color! Seller was extremely quick to respond to questions I had. Anthony on 25th Feb 2017
Shrimp looks great with no problems so far. I got them a week ago and they're still active and mold quite frequently. That's good quality shrimp, I would highly recommend this seller! Dimos on 14th Feb 2017
Shrimp arrived very well packaged, all in good health. A tiny bit on the small side, but happy with the purchase! Unknown on 9th Nov 2016
All came live and it is summer in Virginia so I was very happy.
They are on the small size (but the description was right tho) I bought a small floating breeder enclosure to keep them separate from the rest of the fish in the tank for now. This has worked well I can feed and keep an eye on them until they get a little bigger.
