The Fire Red Shrimp is the most popular choice for freshwater shrimp hobbyists thanks to its availability, affordability, beautiful bright red coloration, and ease in care. Fire Red Shrimp make a striking and dynamic addition to a freshwater aquarium, and will stand out beautifully against a dark substrate. These shrimp are very active as they scavenge the tank, cleaning up waste and left over food. They love to feed off of naturally occurring biofilm and algae, especially in a planted tank. For this reason, they can be quite low maintenance; in fact, they can even help keep your tank clean! Fire Red Shrimp can withstand a pretty wide range of water parameters, and their life expectancy can be up to 2 years if they are kept well. These shrimp are eager breeders, making them a great choice for beginners to freshwater shrimp breeding. Fire Red Shrimp are not an aggressive species, and this combined with their versatility makes them a good option as tank companions.
The Fire Red Shrimp is a product of the selective breeding of the Red Cherry Shrimp for the most vibrant and complete red coloration possible. Fire Red Shrimp are available in a range of colors, described as grades. The most opaque and full coverage red colorations are the most desirable grades. The range of grades listed from least to most desirable are as follows: Sakura (mostly red body with some spots or stripes, especially in lower body and legs), Fire Red Low Grade (almost completely red body and legs with only very small cracks or holes in the carapace, lower body, and legs, but the red color may be translucent or appear orange), Fire Red High Grade (completely red with no cracks or holes on body or legs, slightly translucent red or dark orange appearance) and Painted Fire Red (solid dark red coloring throughout the body and legs with no translucence). Sexing Fire Red Shrimp becomes difficult at the higher grades, as both males and females have the potential to be completely red. Fire Red Shrimp males are generally lighter in color than females, and exhibit lower color grades. Female Fire Red Shrimp have slightly larger tails and display a “saddle” formation on the upper body, behind the head, where eggs are stored before fertilization. When female shrimp are “berried”, or have eggs ready for fertilization, the saddle shape will appear more prominent. Once the shrimp are fully-grown the males will be smaller than the females.
Fire Red Shrimp are tolerant to a fairly wide range of water parameters, making them excellent for pairing with other species. As long as the shrimp are acclimated properly to your chosen parameters and are not subjected to extreme changes in temperature or acidity, they are adaptable and resilient. They will tolerate soft or hard water. The ideal water parameters are 70°-85° F with 7 to 7.5 pH. However, as mentioned, you may keep them outside of these parameters as long as the shrimp are protected from extreme or frequent fluctuations.
