Fire Red Cherry Shrimp

Description

Size: 0.6 - 1 cm

The Fire Red Cherry Shrimp is the higher quality version of the regular Cherry Shrimp. These guys have been selectively bred for the darker red through generations of culling.  

The Fire Red Shrimp is the most popular choice for freshwater shrimp hobbyists thanks to its availability, affordability, beautiful bright red colouration, and ease of care.  Fire Red Shrimp make a striking and dynamic addition to a freshwater aquarium and will stand out beautifully against a dark substrate. These shrimp are very active as they scavenge the tank, cleaning up waste and leftover food. They love to feed off of naturally occurring biofilm and algae, especially in a planted tank. For this reason, they can be quite low maintenance; in fact, they can even help keep your tank clean! Fire Red Shrimp can withstand a pretty wide range of water parameters, and their life expectancy can be up to 2 years if they are kept well. These shrimp are eager breeders, making them a great choice for beginners to freshwater shrimp breeding. Fire Red Shrimp are not an aggressive species, and this combined with their versatility makes them a good option as tank companions.

Fire Red Shrimp are tolerant to a fairly wide range of water parameters, making them excellent for pairing with other species. As long as the shrimp are acclimated properly to your chosen parameters and are not subjected to extreme changes in temperature or acidity, they are adaptable and resilient. They will tolerate soft or hard water. The ideal water parameters are 21 -30 degree with 7 to 7.5 pH. However, as mentioned, you may keep them outside of these parameters as long as the shrimp are protected from extreme or frequent fluctuations.

Fire red cherry shrimp

My shrimp arrived safe and sound and have all settled in really well. They are currently eating, zooming about industriously and growing. I can’t wait for their little colony to become established. I love them

Fantastic!

Bought 20 Fire Red Cherry Shrimp. All arrived alive, even with the 2 nights in transit due to covid delays. Very active and full of colour once I got them warmed up and in the tank. Packaged really well. Fantastic quality, will buy from again. Highly recommend.
