Presenting a collection of my previously unpublished Red Cherry Shrimp photos. The pictures are from various stages of my 5.5 gallon planted tank’s life in the past year & a half, and feature male, female, berried females (egg-carrying), and young RCS.

Red Cherry Shrimp are a dwarf shrimp species that are easy to keep and breed. They have a very low bio-load, so you can safely keep plenty of more shrimp in a tank than you can fish. They will grow to a max of 1.5 inches in length and will survive a wide range of temperatures – but do best in the mid-70s Fahrenheit (where they will breed).

Enjoy the photos!
