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.
Very happy with the red cherry shrimp I received. All were healthy on arrival and after acclimation were added to tank. They are all doing well . Pleased there were different ages of shrimp in the mix.
Red Cherry Shrimp
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
