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.
Each bag contains at least 5 cherry shrimp. We ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age. You will also get some strands of java moss, which is a fantastic plant to keep in shrimp tanks. It grows very quickly and the shrimp love the cover that it provides.
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.
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.
RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:
– PH level range: 6.0 to 8.0
– Temperature range: 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit
– Water type: Soft to hard
– Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, Indian Tiger shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Mystery 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, baby tears, 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.
Comes with a sample of our custom blended Aquatic Arts Brand food! Each order will contain a small sample bag of our proprietary food in a bag bearing the Aquatic Arts logo.
