Details

The Little Red Riding Hood Shrimp is an uncommon, lovely single-stripe variety of the the Red Rili Neocaridina Shrimp!

 

The Little Red Riding Hood Shrimp is a fairly new variant of the popular Red Rili Shrimp! This is one of the newest forms in the ever-growing varieties of this hardy, easy-to-keep dwarf shrimp species. Displaying a single red band on an otherwise white/transparent body, this variety is distinctive and is sure to become very popular among shrimp keepers.

Care for this shrimp is identical to all varieties of Cherry, Neon Yellow, Blue Velvet, Sapphire, Blue/Black Diamond, Chocolate, Snowball, and Rili Shrimp. It is comparably durable as well.  

This shrimp is a scavenger and is very useful in planted and nano aquariums. The bulk of its diet is biofilm, algae, and decaying plant matter so it will work diligently to clean up the waste in any aquarium. It feeds constantly, so it displays constant activity. In a less mature aquarium, it should be fed high quality flake and mini pellet dry foods with high algae/spirulina/plant content.
