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 how easy to care for they are. Not to mention the Neocaridina variety are capable of living in much harder water parameters which are more suitable to most freshwater aquarium fish species than their caridina brethren. 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 lawnmower or goat does - giving the algae a very clean appearance to be left alone or easily removed manually. I've 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.
Cherry Shrimp are quite easy to breed 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 couldn't do it without them.
DISCLAIMER: I specialize in breeding guppies & endlers. I keep shrimp as a part of the ecosystem in every aquarium and do Not selectively breed cherry shrimp as I do the fish. For the highest quality shrimp available I definitely recommend searching the internet or reddit for someone like me that specializes in the shrimps.
