Red King Kong Shrimp
Red King Kong Shrimp makes eye catching and functional additions to any peaceful freshwater aquarium. Its beautiful coloration adds an ornamental quality while its purposeful pursuit for algae and organic debris makes the Red King Kong Shrimp an invaluable aquarium cleanup crew. A striking Red covers the shrimp’s body. Ornamental freshwater shrimp such as the Red King Kong Shrimp have gained popularity thanks to their hearty appetite for all kinds of freshwater algae. These highly adaptable shrimp do well in most freshwater aquariums with good filtration and water quality. However, Red King Kong Shrimp will thrive in planted aquariums where food and shelter are abundant.
If there is a male and female in your aquarium, Red King Kong Shrimp will most likely breed. The female will carry a clutch of eggs under her tail until they hatch in about 30 days. The newly born shrimp will look like miniature adult shrimp and will eat the same thing as the adults. If breeding shrimp, it is important to keep them in a breeder aquarium with a sponge filter. This added precaution helps maximize survival of young shrimp. Like all invertebrates, Red King Kong Shrimp is sensitive to copper. Copper-based medications should never be used in aquariums housing ornamental invertebrates. Do not house Red King Kong Shrimp in aquariums with loaches, puffers, and other larger carnivores that will feed on invertebrates. Red King Kong Shrimp is omnivores that will consume algae, detritus and left-over food. If insufficient food is present, supplement with algae tablets or quality flake food or pellets.
