Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina Davidi)
These Cherry Shrimp for sale must be the greatest cleanup crew ever. Neocaridina Davidi are the most popular freshwater shrimp in the hobby because of how prolific, peaceful and easy to care for. A totally essential element to any planted freshwater aquarium. They are incredible for algae control as they will literally mow it down the same way a lawn mower or goat does - giving the algae a very clean appearance to be left alone or easily removed manually. Ive never known of a better tank mate for guppies or endlers livebearers. Because of the symbiotic relationship within the aquarium and striking similarities in peaceful and social behaviors, they are literally a match made in heaven. The shrimp breed quite easily having a gestation period of around 30 days and a lifespan of about ~2 years. The baby shrimplets come by the hundreds, offering a live natural food source that keeps on giving if need be. However this rarely happens as long as there is a consistent food source, both species live in complete harmony. Every one of my aquariums is full of these guys and I couldnt do it without them.
