Default Red Cherry Shrimp

Here is one of my bigger female Red Cherry Shrimp sitting on dwarf hairgrass eating.

Try to get us a better pic. How many do you have now? Have you noticed any of the females being berried?

yes three or four of my females are berried; I also have berried ghost shrimp and a berried Indian white banded; also there are guppy fry that are growning in the Java moss (these are getting more adventurous). I will try to get better pictures.

I put in three leaves of baby spiniach I boiled and the shrimp and the fish went wild for it.

Hopefully you will get many Cherry Shrimp young going in your tank. The 1/2 inch long RCS are very good for getting store credit at your local fish shops. The Ghost shrimp are so common that you won't get much for them. I don't know anything about the Indian White Banded shrimp, but they may fetch a good price also. Good luck.

Shrimp are very hard to get photos of. I bought 35.00 worth of cherries and amano shrimp (10 total...way over priced) and I'm lucky to see them in the tank.

The tank looks nice. I love planted tanks. Cherries when they aren't hiding really stand out.
