The Cherry Red shrimp are an amazing addition to peaceful freshwater aquariums, particularly to a tank with live plants. While live plants are not required for these fish to live, they will develop the best color and size in a heavily planted tank. Young shrimp, or shrimp undergoing stress will often be nearly completely clear and will take time to develop their red color so upon arrival they may not be red or have very much red to them. Males are also not very brightly colored, but they are dabbled with red in places. The females tend to be much more red. These shrimp are fantastic as scavengers in the aquarium, and they are also well known as being excellent to eat algae in a freshwater aquarium. This comes in particularly handy for live planted aquariums, as the shrimp will help keep plant leaves clean and healthy. These shrimp are omnivores and will eat whatever food they can find in the aquarium, in addition to grazing on any algae if it is present in the tank.

Care should be taken if the shrimp are not being kept in an aquarium by themselves, because they will make a quick snack for many types of fish. Generally guppies, small danios and small tetras are considered fairly safe tank mates.
