Sale price£3.95


Neocaridina shrimp, often referred to as cherry shrimp, are delightful additions to tropical aquariums known for their vivid colours and active behaviour. Originating from Asia, these freshwater shrimp come in a range of vibrant hues including red, blue, yellow, and more, adding a pop of colour to any aquatic setup.

Creating an ideal habitat for Neocaridina shrimp involves providing a well-planted aquarium with hiding places and smooth surfaces. They thrive in stable water conditions with a temperature range of 65-78°F (18-26°C) and a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Ammonia and nitrite levels should be kept at zero, making regular water changes crucial for their health.

Neocaridina shrimp are primarily algae grazers but benefit from a varied diet that includes specialized shrimp pellets, blanched vegetables like zucchini or spinach, and occasional treats such as bloodworms or brine shrimp. Calcium supplements like cuttlebone or mineral rocks should be provided to support their exoskeleton growth.

These shrimp are peaceful and thrive in groups, making them excellent additions to community tanks with other non-aggressive species. Avoid housing them with large or aggressive fish that may prey on them. With proper care and suitable tank mates, Neocaridina shrimp will flourish and contribute to the ecological balance of your tropical aquarium while showcasing their beautiful colours and lively behaviour.
