Overview: Very popular Red cherry shrimp will add colour in your aquarium as well as a good shift. Hardy, very active workers who love clean water, at around 22 degrees. They are easy to care for, and easy to breed. As with all shrimp, if you planning keeping the young ones make sure to install sponge prefilter. Peaceful in nature, will do well with any fish who’s not trying to eat them for snack. Red cherries shed so if you find a ghost like figure in your tank it is best to keep it there. shrimp will eventually dispose of it and recover some minerals from it. As with their blue cousins I keep, highly recommended.
