    Fire Reds are truly popular and are sought after for its red color.  Fire Reds are Cherry Shrimps but are more red. These shrimps are one of the first shrimps to be available on the market and continuously bred to improve its red color. The grading is judged by how opaque the red is. The more opaque it is, the higher the grade is. The highest grade of Cherry Shrimps are Painted Fire Red which has full red coverage throughout its body and legs.

    Fire Red comes from the Neocaridina Davidi Line and has been selectively bred to get its red color. Although there are multiple colors of neocaridina in the same line, it is not recommended to mix them to keep the genes to be the purist it can be. If you do however mix the colors, you will most likely end up with wild brown colored offsprings.

    Fire Red like all neocaridinas are slightly harder to sex until they mature. Once they mature, the female will have a curved underbelly and the male will have a straight underbelly.

    These are popular among the shrimp hobby and are great for people getting into the hobby. A general rule of thumb of keeping shrimps is 10 shrimps per gallon. Fire Reds are non-aggressive and spend most of their time eating algae and biofilm off plants, glass, and substrate. They make excellent clean up crews for aquascape tanks. 

    Fire Red are easy to care for as they require remineralized RO water or tap. If you are using tap, keep in mind to check for any harmful metals or chemicals in the water as all tap water is different and some aren't safe to use. When using fertilizer, make sure it does not contain copper as it is harmful to the shrimp’s health.

    The shrimps you will receive will be sub adults to adults which translate to 1.5cm to 2.0cm.

    Disappointed: low-grade shrimp delivered, no communication from seller

    It took 10 days to receive the order, however it was sent overnight once it was finally shipped. Several messages were sent through email and Facebook messenger about the order delay, and again about the low quality of products delivered, and I never received any communication back.

    I ordered fire red shrimp, and the ones I received have partially translucent light red bodies and fully translucent legs (Sakura grade Red Cherry shrimp, not fire red shrimp). The Neocaridina I received seemed like they were pulled from a cull tank, however 9/10 are still alive. I wish there was an option to upload pictures on this review.

    Additionally, I ordered two plants which arrived as tiny little chunks, each chunk about the size of a quarter, 5 chunks in total in each container.
    I will not purchase from this store again.

    Better Than Expected

    I’m usually cautious when ordering on line… especially fish or shrimp. I took a chance and ordered Fire Cherry Reds from billiboyaquatics. The bag arrived with a couple dead adults. I was disappointed at first until I held the bag up to the light and noticed SEVERAL babies swimming around in the bag. This more than made up for the dead ones. All shrimp are alive and well 2 weeks later. The deep red color is amazing. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
