Presentation of the red cherry shrimp

The red cherry shrimp is the ideal shrimp for beginners, it measures about 2-3cm and lives in a colony of about ten individuals in an aquarium of at least 20L. This shrimp is rather discreet and will tend to hide in the presence of fish. Red cherry loves mosses (Example: java moss ) and fine-leaved plants . In addition, to preserve their colors avoid mixing the different varieties of Neocaridina . For example, they can coexist with Babaulti prawns.

How to feed the red cherry?

The red cherry, like most aquarium shrimp , is a scavenger. She appreciates dry food (granules, flakes, etc.) but also live food (bloodworm, brine shrimp, etc.).

In store, the shrimp are fed Bassleer BiofishFood Shrimp Stick daily and have access to cellulose at all times with different natural products .

Sweets are also very popular such as Snowflakes, Shrimp Snack , Lollies , ...


Reproduction of the neocaridina red cherry

The male is lighter in color than the female, and the female has a larger abdomen than the male. The female reproduces only after a moult and when the ovarian sac is developed (orange-yellow spot behind the head). This develops at sexual maturity (3-4 months of life). After mating, her ovarian sac descends below her abdomen and eggs are formed in it (coloration varies depending on maintenance conditions). Then, the female will oxygenate the eggs throughout the incubation period (25 days on average) by stirring them. Once the juveniles are formed, the female expels them from her abdomen. The zoes (juveniles) are then an exact copy of the adult red cherries , in miniature.
