Red Cherry shrimp or RCS are a breed of shrimp known as Neocaridina denticulata sinensis. Red Cherry shrimp exist in many colors in the wild but in the aquarium red is by far the most popular strain and this is attributed to their name. The bright red color is a result of years of selective breeding. The red cherry shrimp really stands out in the aquarium especially against plants and darker substrates.
Red Cherry shrimp are extremely hardy and condition tolerant when compared to other varieties of shrimp. This makes them an excellent beginner shrimp. They are easy to breed, maintain and they will naturally hide from predators.

Died in a week from parasites
They arrived looking healthy and a good size. I will be ordering more
all but 1 came in healthy, sadly lost another couple a few days later but still happy with them, already got some that are berried, cant wait to have some baby shrimp running around
Yes I purchased some red shrimps but they only survived overnight. Not sure what happened, whether it was the trip in transit, maybe they had a rough time, not sure. Thats the breaks you take the good with the bad.
Just kept on dying check my water parameters and were fine won't be buying shrimp again and wasting 200 dollars instead I will buy rainbow sharks:)
