The Red Cherry Shrimp are a very unique shrimp and can only be found in limited areas of Taiwan until now. Red Cherry Shrimp or RCS eat many more types of algae unlike the Caridina japonica (Amano shrimp) which are more limited to just hair algae and detritus, and are currently regarded as one of the best cleaners for fish tanks. These bright red colored Cherry Shrimp enrich the look of most any fish tank. These egglaying shrimp are fairly easy to breed, easy to care for, and just look at the above numbers for required temp, and pH, what more do you want in a shrimp? These are tough, resilient, and amazing little shrimp that have took the aquarium hobby by storm in 2003. About 1/2 the size of Amano Shrimp with beautiful red coloration.
SIMPLE to care for, and chances are good that they will breed in your tank.
Size at shipping varies but range from about 1/4″ and up.
Stocking Ratio: 6 shrimp or more per gallon
