|Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina heteropoda) |
RCS is one of the most popular dwarf shirmp in the aquahobby and are very easy to care for in home freshwater aquarium. They will adapt to wide range of water conditions and will thrive in the same conditions as common aquarium fish, these cute little critters should be kept in colonies, they enjoy sitting on plant leaves and munch on film of algae and micro organism formed on plant leaves, Females are more colorful compared to male of the same species. The photo above is of a adult male RCS sitting on leaves of Windelov fern in my aquarium.
