Item:264363806015Extreme temperatures may delay shipping. You will receive 10 + 2 home bred neocaridina red cherry shrimp. These are mixed grade. Pictures are my actual shrimp. Some shrimp will be less colorful. The +2 are to cover the unlikely, but possible DOA. Red cherry shrimp grow to about 3/4 inch, are easy to care for in the home freshwater aquarium, and breed well. They will adapt to a wide range of water conditions, and will thrive in the same conditions as many common aquarium fish. Neutral to slightly alkaline pH, with zero ammonia and nitrite as well as low nitrate, gives best results. A planted tank is most comfortable for the shrimp and the plants provide cover for adults and young. Plants also provide surfaces to graze on biofilm The shrimp spends a great deal of its time sitting on aquatic plants, when available, and hiding in them for protection, especially after molting. They also eat the film of algae and microorganisms that forms on plant leaves without harming the leaves in the process. Java moss and Java fern are both excellent plants for the shrimp tank, as they thrive in the same conditions as the cherry shrimp and provide both the physical benefits of the plants to the shrimp and provide a human viewer with a pleasing visual contrast with the red bodies of the shrimp. Shrimplets spend much of their early life hiding among plants and feeding from microorganisms and tank algae. Java moss is common and inexpensive in most places, fast-growing, and provides excellent cover for the young. Red cherry shrimp respond to the color of their background and substrate. If they are kept in a tank with light-coloured substrate, they will become paler, or even transparent. On a darker substrate, they take on their full red coloration. Color intensity also depends on the types of food available (live foods and those high in protein and fats are more beneficial than flake foods), water pH, and temperature. Prepared foods specifically designed for shrimp are widely available. Large fish will eat adult shrimp, and all fish will eat shrimplets. Adults can go with fish like guppies and neon tetras. Shipping by USPS within the Continental United States only. Live arrival is guaranteed if good pictures are taken of DOA still sealed in original bag and sent within 3 hours of delivery, based on USPS records.
