Red Rili Shrimp, also known as Neocaridina davidi var. red rili, are a freshwater shrimp species that are popular among aquarium enthusiasts. They are known for their striking red and white coloration, which gives them a unique and eye-catching appearance.
Red Rili Shrimp are relatively easy to care for and are suitable for beginner aquarists. They prefer a tank with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH (around 7.0-8.0) and a temperature range of 68-78°F. The tank should be planted, as Red Rili Shrimp love to graze on algae and other plant matter. They also prefer a substrate made of sand or gravel.
Red Rili Shrimp are peaceful and non-aggressive, making them suitable for community aquariums. However, they may become prey to larger fish, so it's important to keep them with small and peaceful tankmates.
These shrimp are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods, including algae, detritus, and commercial shrimp pellets. It's important to provide them with a balanced diet to ensure their health and longevity.
Red Rili Shrimp are prolific breeders and can quickly populate a tank if conditions are favorable. They are also easy to breed, making them a popular choice for hobbyists who want to start a shrimp breeding program.
