  • Class: Malacostraca
  • Order: Decapoda

Diet: Algae-film, any fish food, vegetables such as zucchini (courgette), baby carrots, peas, cucumber, kale and spinach

Sex: Male is less colorful than female shrimp and females are usually bigger than males as the female shrimp is to carry the eggs in the saddle. 

This breed is one of the easiest to take care of because of its adaptability to wide ranges of water conditions as long as the water composition is of the right level. 

The same as other aquatic animals, the best option to go is a bigger fish tank where the shrimps can swim freely without the population overcrowding the entire tank. 

Breeding: The sexual maturity of cherry shrimp is 4-6 months from and eggs become visible at the bottom of the belly or saddle when the females are already carrying the eggs.
