ORANGE RILI SHRIMP selectively bred from Orange Neocaridina Shrimp for their rili pattern - a striking red and white coloration, with the white parts often appearing translucent. Like many other Neocaridina shrimps, Red Rili can live in wide range of water parameters, as long as there will not be sudden change to their enviroment. They are very popular for planted tanks and community tanks, and many people use them in large aquariums for waste management and algae control. A colony of these shrimp works as a very effective cleaning crew for your aquarium, cleaning up algae and waste.We generally ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age, that are about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in length. Some of the younger shrimp have not reached their full potential yet and will grow into a bright orange color as long as they are comfortable in the tank. Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the brightest orange.
