Add some color and excitement to your aquarium with Red Cherry Shrimp! These shrimp look great, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch! They are very active and breed very quickly.  A colony of these shrimp works as a very effective cleaning crew for your aquarium, cleaning up algae and waste.  Our red cherry shrimp ship out as breeding age young adults that are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in length.

These are regular grade cherry shrimp, which means that they will not be solid red like the higher grade Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp and the Painted Fire Red Cherry Shrimp.  They will be mostly red with some clear parts.
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 deep red color as long as they are comfortable in the tank. Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the deepest and darkest reds.
  • pH level range: 6.0 - 8.0 
  • Temperature range: 65° - 80° F (18° - 27° C)
  • Water type: Soft to hard 
  • Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish. 
  • Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - similar to other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, Anubias barteri, green cabomba, etc). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
