Red Rili Shrimp are peaceful and sociable freshwater shrimp. These shrimp are highly adaptable creatures and can live in almost any freshwater aquarium with a wide range of water parameters. A colony of these shrimp works as a very effective cleaning crew for your aquarium, cleaning up algae and waste. Red Rilis are very popular for planted tanks and community aquariums because they are very active and breed very quickly.
You can keep Red Rili Shrimp with different shrimp species in the same tank as well as smallish non-aggressive peaceful fish.
Red Rili Shrimp feature a prominent red and white colouration, with the white parts often appearing transparent. They have a diverse degree of transparent areas, from very little red to mostly red with clear patches. However, their standard colour usually consists of red on the head and tail with a clear body. These shrimp typically have different markings.
