Details

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!  The beautiful, red coloration helps this little shrimp stand out sharply against any backdrop, plants, or substrate in any aquarium.  Like all dwarf shrimp, they are very active and breed 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.

Sakura Red Cherry Grade Color:

  • Mostly Red, lower body and legs can have clear patches
  • Body and legs can have spots or stripes of red coloration with small clear patches
  • Males can range from Regular Grade to Sakura Red Grade
 
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 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.

Many commercial fish foods, medications, and plant fertilizers contain copper or more commonly copper sulfate. Always look at the ingredient list for any product going into the aquarium to ensure they are copper free.

  • Origin: Tank-bred , but wild populations indigenous to Taiwan
  • Average adult size: 1 - 1.5 inches (2.5 - 3.8 cm)
  • Average purchase size: 1/2 - 3/4 inch (1.3 - 1.9 cm)
