  • Regular water changes and monitoring of water parameters are essential for their well-being.

Tank Setup:

  • Use a fine-grained substrate like sand or small gravel, allowing the shrimp to forage without risking injury to their delicate appendages.
  • Incorporate live plants such as Java Moss, Anubias, or Marimo Moss Balls to provide hiding spots and grazing surfaces.
  • Provide driftwood or rocks as additional hiding places and create a natural aesthetic in the tank.

Feeding Habits:

  • Fire Red Shrimp are primarily scavengers and algae grazers.
  • Offer a balanced diet consisting of high-quality shrimp pellets, algae wafers, blanched vegetables (such as spinach or zucchini), and occasional live or frozen foods like brine shrimp or daphnia.
  • They will also graze on biofilm and algae growth in the tank, which is essential for their overall health.


  • Maintain good water quality by performing regular water changes and monitoring parameters such as ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels.
  • Avoid introducing copper-based medications or other chemicals that may harm the shrimp.
  • Select tank mates carefully, as larger or aggressive fish may prey on or harass the shrimp.
