Bloody Mary Shrimp
Bloody Mary Shrimps are a very nice colour variation from the Red Cherry Shrimp.
Historically Bloody Mary Shrimp did not originate from selective breeding from the common Red Cherry Shrimps. Bloody Mary Shrimp originated by the mixing Super Black Cherry Shrimp and Fire Red Cherry Shrimps. Due to this selective breeding we now have the colours that appears today. The colour of the Bloody Mary Shrimp appears dark red and the richness of the colour stands out as something that should be carefully considered within your tank.
This strain of Bloody Mary shrimps stems from a breeder in Queensland who selectively breeds these shrimps for their colour and form. As a result, the quality of the shrimp is to us considered one of the best! When you are ready, consider getting some of these Australia bred shrimps.
