Cherry Shrimp are the mascots of the shrimp keeping hobby and are worthy of their fame. They come in a wide variety of grading, readily available, extremely prolific and the bright red coloration makes for a solid first choice for new shrimp keepers. It is generally known that if you’re unable to keep Cherry shrimp alive, you should re-investigate your water and tank conditions before proceeding with any other shrimp. Note that Bloody Mary Shrimp are not the same as Cherry Shrimp.

Our High Grade Cherry Shrimps are the offsprings of award winning Cherry Shrimp from AE 2018 and they range from Fire Red to Painted Fire Red. You should not expect that your purchased Cherry shrimp will all be PFRs, but rather a mix of ultimately fire red and above shrimp. Their bright red coloration works well for any color substrate, but we feel they contrast best against bright green planted tank with dark/black substrate.
