Description

Blood red fire shrimp are one of the most stunning decorative shrimp available in the hobby. These shrimp have long antennae and boast beautiful blood red coloration with white spots. The Blood Red Fire Shrimp will scavenge for meaty bits along the bottom of the tank. As a “cleaner shrimp” these amazing creators will set up cleaning stations to remove parasites and dead tissue from fish that present themselves. These shrimp are most active at night and prefer the habitat to be aquascaped with plenty of caves and overhangs to avoid the intense lighting during the day. Blood Red Shrimp will chase away or harass others of its own kind unless they are kept in a very spacious aquarium, however they will tolerate their mates. The shrimp benefit from adequate levels of iodine in the water to help promote proper molting. Similar to other invertebrates the Blood Red Fire Shrimp do not tolerate copper, high levels of nitrates or parameter swings in an aquarium.
