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.

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.

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.
