10 Red Cherry Shrimp

Cherry Shrimp

You will receive ten (10) red cherry shrimp. 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.

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.

Arrived alive and active, got their color back in about a week. Look great and have found 3 molts already in the few weeks I have had them!

Bright red and all alive

I ordered 10 cherry shrimp and they are beautiful. Nearly every shrimp is a bright red color with one or two that have a more mild appearance. Additionally, I was given about a 50/50 split of males and females which is great for starting a healthy colony. The little guys are very active and have loved exploring their new home. They have also been excellent at cleaning up all the plants and algae present!

Great shrimp

Received shrimp on time and in great shape. Added to a seasoned tank, followed acclimation instructions and they all survived.

Red Cherry Shrimp

Order 10 and received 12 all alive and in a timely fashion. They are very active and seem to be doing very well in my aquarium. They have grown quite a bit too. Very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you!

All are still doing great

I ordered 10 cherries and 11, ordered 10 neons and got 12, ordered 3 mystery snails and got 5. wow, now I want more neons, cherries, and other nano fish. I will be getting from this site. no ick at all have developed or anything else. I'm so impressed. I only have options of big box stores where I live as only 1 LFS in baton rouge and their fish almost wiped out all my tanks. I do have a QT now. But will only order online from here for now own.
