20 Red Cherry Shrimp

20 Pack of Red Cherry Shrimp (RCS)

You will receive twenty (20) 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.

Very Healthy and Great color

Ordered 20 red cherry shrimp, received 2 clearly printed labels of 12 in each bag. Phenomenal packaging. All arrived alive and healthy and have been in my 55-gallon acrylic for a bit over a week and are very active. Very good color and seem to love their new home. I am very happy to have them.

Surprise, surprise!

I ordered 2 0 cherry shrimp and actually expected lower quality RCS. Flip Aquatics must have run out of the "regular" RCS after I placed my order. When I recieved my order, I opened it and found 20+2 Bloody Mary shrimp. Instead of telling me they had no RCS. I completely recommend buying from Flip Aquatics. They are VERY committed to the customer. The only complaint I have is they don't reply to emails. I will definitely spread the word of my AWESOME treatment. Good job Rob!

All arrived alive

20 shrimp ordered, 20 + 4 arrived alive.

So far so good

Ordered 20, got 24, all active and seem to be doing well after 3 days.
