General Information

Cherry Shrimp are currently the most popular dwarf shrimp in the hobby. This is due to their hardiness, attractive color, and prolific breeding rate. Cherry Shrimp are also one of the cheapest dwarf shrimp available as they have been in the hobby for several years and are easily bred.

The red color of the Cherry Shrimp was bred from wild Neocaridina Heteropoda, a native of Southern Asia. The red coloring does not occur in the wild.


Cherry Shrimp are red (obviously). The intensity ranges from almost clear to blood red. Adult females are generally the most red individuals. Selective breeding has be done to intensify the red, and these shrimp are known as Sakura Shrimp, Fire Red Shrimp, and Painted Fire Red Shrimp.
