Black rili Shrimp

Caring & Breeding Black rili Shrimp

Description:  The Black rili Shrimp is one of the only black colored rili shrimp in the hobby. It is a selectively bred from the same wild type as the Red Cherry Shrimp to obtain its yellow coloration. It is favored by many hobbyists due to its unique color, hardiness and breeding rate. These Shrimp are really tough shrimp and can take “A beating”. like some other shrimp are very sensitive to waterchanges and/or minor problems,these rili shrimp just keep going. And while keeping fish these are ideal to help you to clean your tank of uneaten food and algae. You can see them as a clean up crew for your tank!! The origin of the Yellow Shrimp lies in Japan and is a color morph of the wild Neocaridina Heteropoda species. The date of their creation seems to be around 2006 or a few years earlier. The exact breeder/creator who created this color morph is unknown. The Yellow Shrimp is now widespread throughout the hobby as it is extremely prolific. Appearance:  Shrimp head and end of body are black. Middle of the body is (mostly)transparent. Shrimp is fully colored at maturity. (around 5 months) Feeding: Omnivore with majority of vegetable content. Overfeeding of protein can cause health issues. Shrimp will feed on tank algae, algae waffels , boiled (baby) spinach leaves , paprika , and almost anything you thrown into the aquarium. Nitrite 0ppm Nitrates should always be as low as possible. Ammonia 0ppm As with nitrite, ammonia should always be 0 post cycling. Breeding:  If water conditions are ideal shrimp will breed really fast and alot when matured (3-4 months old). Shrimp will carry around 20-30 eggs for around 3-4 weeks of gestation period. After this period fully developed shrimplets are released. Tanks mates: Very small fish or shrimp of similar size. Mixing with other neocaridina will deliver mixed offspring and is not recommended. Can be mixed with any Caridina sp. without producing mixed offspring's. Size: Females grow slightly larger than the males . Males 1.5-2cm Females 2-2.5cm Aquarium size:  variable Difficulty: Easy Breeding Water parameters:  18-28C Degrees, PH Range 6.5-8, TDS 100-500The Yellow Shrimp can be housed in many different water parameters. I have kept them in a pH range from 6.0 to 8.0, soft and hard water, temperatures from 72F to 84F and in many different soils like akadama or borneowild ph lowering and normal gravel. It is common knowledge that, like its cousin the Red Cherry Shrimp, the Yellow Shrimp can live in almost any freshwater aquarium given that the tank is habitable and does not contain predators of course. The Yellow Shrimp is an extremely versitile and reproduction shrimp given that the water is clean and maintained properly. Note: Some species of shrimp are know to be able to handle water changes and/or PH swings.But even in these cases the survival rate will be much higher (especially for the shrimp fry) if are able to keep these level as steady as possible. In case of adding “new/fresh” water try adding it very slow or even dripping it into your tank.In case of Co2 do it EXTRA slow and dont forget to TURN IT OFF AT NIGHT!! You will notice an “explosion” in population and thus more to enjoy!!
