10 Red Cherry Shrimp

Cherry Shrimp

You will receive ten (10) red cherry shrimp. Our imported cherry shrimp are mostly solid red and have amazing coloration. Cherry shrimp can take up to 3 weeks to color up after shipping. The stress of shipping combined with the darkness of the shipping box can result in the shrimp losing their color. 

Cherry shrimp in general have been in the hobby for a long time. They are accustomed to aquarium life and therefore are relatively easy to keep. If you are looking for an easier shrimp option or just getting into the hobby, amano shrimp are the hardiest shrimp we offer and can serve as an amazing cleanup grew for your aquarium. 

Grading Cherry Shrimp

The grading of cherry shrimp is as follows. Cherry shrimp in general refers to the lowest grade of Red Neocaridina aquarium shrimp. Regular cherry shrimp are generally pretty clear. Sakura cherry shrimp are a more intense red color. While still possessing clear patches, Sakura shrimp are more solid in color than regular cherry shrimp. Fire red shrimp is the next grade and refers to shrimp that are completely red. Painted Fire Red shrimp are the last and highest grade. Painted fire red shrimp are completely solid in color and have no transparent patches. Painted fire red shrimp usually have red legs as well.

Flip aquatics is great all around! I had an issue with a shrimp order (shippings fault not the store) and staff was super kind and helpful and resolved my issue. My cherry shrimp from Flip Aquatics are happy healthy and thriving and I even received a berried female in my order! Great staff, great products and animals, would recommend to new and experienced sellers!

Cherry Shrimp Are Awesome

We received 12 Cherry Shrimp from FlipAquatics for the aquarium we have at our college and have been such a eye catching feature of our aquarium now. Amanda and Rob were excellent in provided information and follow-up details throughout the entire delivery and ordering process, that I would definitely recommend FlipAquatics to others.

10 + 2 Healthy Cherry Shrimp

I've continued to purchase from Flip because of their conscientious packaging and shipping, and overall care, of these little creatures. Again, they added two gratuitous shrimp and all twelve arrived completely active.
