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.
Acclimated them and haven’t had one loss out of the 10, great vibrant color.
Happy with them
Paid for 7, received 8 which was a nice bonus, about 5 were incredibly small, but i’m not too fazed as they’ll grow up anyway
Great customer service as always and super fast shipping to NSW just 2 days to my address. Shrimp arrived good and healthy, even got few extras… will buy more again soon. Highly recommended
The shrimp supplied were mostly very small, 3 out of seven were of decent size. I ordered 5, got 7 so i guess it works out
