Red Cherry Shrimp History
The Red Cherry Shrimp is the red color variation of the wild Neocaridina heteropoda. This color variation was originally bred in Germany and started to appear in The United States in the late 1990's

Red Cherry Shrimp Care
The Cherry Red Shrimp is an undemanding shrimp in its care requirements. They should be kept in a well established aquarium with no predators. The most important factor for water parameter is stability and as long as none of the water parameters are in the extremes Red Cherry Shrimp should be happy and healthy.

Red Cherry Shrimp Diet
The Red Cherry Shrimp is an Omnivore. They are decent algae eaters and if sufficient algae is not present foods intended for aquarium fish and invertebrates can be used to supplement their diet. Another great supplement is blanched (boiled until soft) vegetables

Red Cherry Shrimp Breeding
If a male and a female are present in a well cared for aquarium, the Cherry Shrimp will breed. Females are larger and much more colorful, males are smaller and display a clear coloration with red spots. When the female is mature she will often times display a saddle (as seen in the insert). The saddle is the eggs developing in the females ovaries.

Red Cherry Shrimp Behavior
Red Cherry Shrimp a very non-aggressive. They spend most of the day grazing on plants, gravel and any other tank decorations for algae and other types of foods. Red Cherry Shrimp will get along very will with any other type of dwarf shrimp that is non-aggressive. When the Red Cherry Shrimp is kept in an aquarium that has no predators they are very active and only hide after molting (shedding exoskeleton to enable growth).

Special Notes
As with all aquatic invertebrates it is important to make sure copper does not get into the aquarium. Copper is toxic to all Dwarf Shrimp. Many medications contain elevated levels of copper, so it is recommended not to medicate an aquarium with Dwarf Shrimp in it.
