Cherry Shrimp, Living

Item # 145288 New Online Only This product is not available in our print catalog.

Add a splash of color to freshwater aquaria with this beautiful, easy-to-care-for shrimp. Cherry shrimp are hardy and peaceful and can be kept in smaller tanks. Densities of 2–3 shrimp per gallon work best. Cherry shrimp are small (1 to 1-1/2"), so they should not be housed with large, aggressive fish. They are scavengers and will feed off of excess algae and fish food in the aquarium.

In stock and available to ship.

Cherry shrimp are small (1 to 1-1/2"), so they should not be housed with large, aggressive fish. They are scavengers and will feed off of excess algae and fish food in the aquarium. If they are being housed alone, small quantities of a high-quality sinking food pellet is recommended. Should not be shipped over a weekend.
