These are freshwater shrimp and can live in almost any freshwater aquarium. They are very popular for planted tanks and community tanks, and many people use them in large aquariums for waste management and algae control. We generally ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age and are the highest grade of red cherry shrimp, which means that their coloration is the most intense red you'll ever find!
All Red Cherry Shrimp are extremely adaptable creatures that can live in almost any freshwater aquarium. Some of the younger shrimp have not reached their full potential yet and will grow into a deeper red colour as long as they are comfortable in the tank. Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the deepest and darkest reds.

Diet: Scavenger that feeds continually. Requires very little feeding in a well-established aquarium containing algae, bio film, or decaying plant matter. In less mature aquariums, high quality dry foods with high plant content can be fed multiple times daily. Our Carna Shrimp Food andHara~Spinach Shrimp Food make excellent staple food products for these shrimp.
Social behaviour: Peaceful. A small group can continually replenish and grow its population
