*The shrimp that you receive may not look the same as the image shown due to stress during transportation as well as natural variations.
Red onyx shrimp (Neocaridina Davidi) is a higher grade of cherry shrimp that is darker red with a bit brown. Its shell color look similar to the gem stone onyx, hence the name. It is an active shrimp that breeds easily with deep dark color. Although their algae eating appetite is not as strong as Amano shrimps, they breed easily and you are most likely going to end up with a lot of them, the sheer quantity of them grazing on algae can still end up keeping your tank clean. They are a great addition to your planted aquarium and it is so fun to watch them graze and clean all day long. Be warned, they could keep you sitting in front of your aquarium for long hours!
