I had a slight issue with shipping which APF resolved immediately. They're extremely helpful, and I'm so glad I reached out.
I ordered 10 blue shrimp and received 11 adults and about 20 tiny shrimplets. One adult was dead on arrival, but other than losing 2 more adults a couple days after arrival (likely just stress due to the journey and a new home) everyone has settled in. As of this morning, I've seen 4 babies alive and well, and noticeably bigger already!
The shrimp are all gorgeous dark sapphire blue and appear healthy and happy. I would order from APF again! Pic attached. (Don't mind the brown algae, the tank is newly cycled and needs a quick scrub.)
Only two of my blue shrimp were alive when they arrived, out of five, but the plants were in excellent shape.
I received 6 of these beauties three weeks ago. I wrote a review that only 4 survived the first 24 or so hours, however, that was incorrect and I can't seem to edit my previous review so I'm writing another one! Anyway, all 6 are healthy and well! My tank just had too many plants to find them all until I went really searching for them! Half of them are a lighter see through blue and half are a dark vibrant blue that's so pretty! Thank you APF!!
Ordered a 5 pack, received 6. All survived the journey but 2 died within a few hours. :-( They look great in my planted tank with the 24k yellows and red cherry shrimp. One is a really deep blue and beautiful colored. The others are a lighter color but still pretty.
great mix of deep and paler blues, got 6 in the pack and they're super healthy and active!
