Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi)

Description:

The Red Cherry Shrimp is a vibrant and popular choice for freshwater aquariums, celebrated for its intense red coloration and ease of care. Originating from Taiwan, this colorful variant of Neocaridina davidi is a favorite among both novice and experienced aquarists. Ideal for community tanks, these small shrimps add a splash of color while actively contributing to the cleanliness of the aquarium by feeding on algae and detritus.

Features:

  • Bright red coloration that intensifies with proper care and quality diet
  • Small size, reaching about 1.5 inches in maturity, making them perfect for nano tanks or larger community aquariums
  • Hardy and adaptable, easy to care for under a range of freshwater conditions
  • Peaceful nature, suitable for living alongside other non-predatory fish and invertebrates

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: Minimum 5 gallons, allowing for natural behavior and adequate space for a small colony
  • Water Parameters: pH 6.5-8.0, soft to moderately hard water, with temperatures between 18-28°C (64-82°F)
  • Diet: Omnivorous; thrives on a diet of algae, biofilm, and shrimp-formulated foods. Supplemental feeding with blanched vegetables and high-quality pellets enhances color and health
  • Compatibility: Excellent for community tanks with similarly sized, peaceful fish. Their non-aggressive and busy nature makes them great tank mates
