Housing
Red Cherry shrimp are fairly robust. Their ability to adapt to a range of water conditions makes them a top choice for home aquariums. Shrimp are best suited in aquariums with plants as they love to eat algae. Java moss and java fern are a perfect combination for red cherry shrimps. A darker substrate and/or background will encourage the cherry shrimps to develop their full colour. Cherry shrimps prefer tanks with only small fish. As a rule of thumb, if they can fit the shrimp in their mouth they will eat it. Tetras and Neons make great tank mates.

Behaviour
Cherry shrimp are very active constantly foraging for food or algae. Female cherry shrimps will seclude themselves when carrying eggs so it is important that they have areas to hide.

Diet
Cherry shrimp are predominantly algae eaters however their diet can be subsided with algae wafers or boiled vegetables. It is important to check for copper content on food as this is poisonous to shrimp.

Breeding
Breeding couldn't be any more straight forward. Red cherry shrimp are prolific breeders and this will occur naturally. It will take between 20 to 30 days for females eggs to hatch (into miniature versions of adults). Increasing the tank temperature to 27'C is perfect to induce breeding. Water changes will cause the shrimp to moult and release pheromones which is another great way to induce breeding.
