My Cherry Shrimp & Their Setup

Recommended Posts

Sarah

As promised, here are a couple photos of my cherries. Only new to shrimp so very basic, but I quite like it. I need to get a new light for the tank so I can upgrade it's setup.

or maybe some KKs ;)

Sarah, I think you'll find that once they start to breed, you'll want more different shrimp varieties. Very jealous at the tank room as I would make the whole room into shrimp breeding :)

I have cherries & CBS & CRS, honestly, I enjoy the cherries the most, always active, always out and about feeding, always breeding, and babies are always around, awesome under rated shrimp IMO! And dirt cheap!

They're a brilliant shrimp to learn with I think, While they still require certain ideals and attention to detail which helps get you used to maintaining a tank at a certain level. They're far more forgiving for the new Shrimp keeper.

I also think they're very under rated which is only due to their ease to breed rather than their brilliant look and colours. I don't think anything looks nicer than a solid deep red cherry on a bright green healthy leaf of an Anubias personally.

Agreed! These cherries are really fun, and very easy to care for.

As beautiful as the fancier shrimp are... I find RCS are definitely underrated.

Hi Sarah, I have to agree that cherries are the best to keep, Now with all of the various colours available in Australia like Orange, yellow, blue, brown, Black etc will give you a great scope to collect. I run in one of my tanks my yellow cherries some orange cherry juvaniles, Darwin Red nose shrimp, Some glass shrimp and some CBS/CRS, makes a fantastic display and facinates all visitors who visit my boat. ENJOY! I love my cherries the most though.

I think throwing in an algae wafer and seeing 100+ cherries coming streaming out of nowhere for dinner time is pretty wicked too, and then the dinner table squabbles, LOL

      Usually temperatures in cellars are pretty constant (if it is underground)? I can confirm that even branded heaters can cook the shrimp (learnt that the hard way), it happened to me so a controller is a good idea. If you are that bothered about the temperature being the same and the cellar does fluctuate a lot you may also need a cooler, depending on where you are based?  Simon

      Very sorry to hear about the tank overheating and wiping out your shrimps! Can you get a 2 plug adapter and have the heater and cooler plugged into that overheating safety device as extra security? I now what happened is probably just a freaky thing (who would expect a cooler to heat the water?) that probably won't happen again but you won't be happy with loosing the crabs???? Hopefully the shrimps will be ok with the micro crabs (beautiful red wine in the picture)? Most of the stringy algae has gone in my shrimp tank so I will do maintenance tomorrow, tests at the weekend and if all is ok I will order the (final) red shrimps next week. Thumbs up for perseverance! Simon

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.
