Red Cherry Shrimp
Neocaridina denticulata sinensis

a.k.a. Fire Shrimp, Red Fire Shrimp, Minami Numa Ebi, or Taiwan Shrimp

Size: Up to 3/4"pH: 6.3 - 8.2, Temp: 70-82, Origin: Taiwan

The Red Cherry Shrimp are very unique and can only be found in limited areas of Taiwan until now. Red Cherry Shrimp 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 the best cleaners for fish tanks. These bright red colored Cherry Shrimp enrich the look of any fish tank, and provide a high value of appreciation to fresh water aquaria. 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 taken 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. Combats many more types of algae than most other shrimp.

Please note these are tiny shrimp that eat large amounts of algae. Our red cherry's co-exist with our Adult SAE's, and we do not have any issues with compatibility. Use Common Sense: If you have large carnivorous fish, these could end up being their dinner. Size at shipping varies but range from about 1/4" and up.

Stocking Ratio: 6 shrimp or more per gallon

Our success with these shrimp just brought the price down again!

Special thanks to our friend Chris Lukhaup for exquisite shrimp photo contributions on this site!

We received all of our shrimp today in good health and very active. We even have pregnant girls! They seem to like their new home and went right to work finding things to eat. Looking forward to their babies, thank you so much!

Ordered these shrimp about 6 months and placed them in a planted tank. They have reproduced many times and keep the algae in check. Very active shrimp and are always swimming around.
