A Red Cherry Shrimp can be a great little freshwater shrimp to add to an aquarium. Their bright red color really adds beauty to a tank, especially one loaded with live green aquarium plants and black gravel or substrate. Cherry Shrimp or Neocaridina heteropoda, also known simply as Cherry Shrimp, are natives of Taiwan. But most available in stores today are bred in captivity as they can reproduce in freshwater. Red Cherry Shrimp are active and interesting to watch. Here is an HD video of a Red Cherry Shrimp feeding in a planted aquarium.
