Red Rili shrimp, also known as Cherry Rili shrimp, are captivating freshwater crustaceans that have earned a special place in the hearts of aquarium enthusiasts. Their striking appearance features a translucent body with vibrant red markings, resembling tiny living jewels. These small shrimp are relatively easy to care for, making them a popular choice for both beginners and experienced hobbyists.

Watching these colorful little shrimp scuttle around, particularly against a backdrop of lush green plants, adds a delightful charm to any aquarium setup.

 

Maintaining the right water parameters is crucial for the health and vibrancy of Red Rili shrimp. These shrimp are relatively hardy, but they thrive best in specific water conditions that mimic their natural habitat. Here are the recommended water parameters for Red Rili shrimp:

Temperature: Keep the water temperature between 72-78°F (22-26°C). They can tolerate slightly cooler or warmer temperatures for short periods but do best within this range.

pH Level: Maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level, ideally between 6.5 and 7.5. This range replicates the pH of their native environments.

Hardness: Red Rili shrimp prefer soft to moderately hard water. Aim for a dKH (carbonate hardness) of 2-8 and a dGH (general hardness) of 6-12.

Ammonia and Nitrites: Ensure that ammonia and nitrite levels are consistently at zero. These compounds are toxic to shrimp.

Nitrates: Keep nitrate levels low, ideally below 10-20 ppm (parts per million). Regular water changes and efficient filtration help maintain low nitrate levels.

Filtration: Use gentle filtration with sponge filters or pre-filters on power filters to prevent shrimp from getting sucked into the filter intake.

Substrate: Provide a fine-grained substrate like sand or small gravel, which allows Red Rili shrimp to forage and burrow comfortably.

Plants and Hiding Spots: Include live plants and hiding spots like moss and driftwood to create a natural environment and provide cover for the shrimp.
