Product Overview


English name: Red Rili/Blue Rili

Scientific Name
Neocaridina Heteropoda var. "Rili"

Origin: Selectively bred color mutation of Red Cherry Shrimp.

Water Parameters: pH 6.5 - 7.8

Breeding Rate: High

Behaviour: non-agressive

Difficulty: Easy


As with most Neocaridina variants, Rili shrimp are very easy to breed. Since they are virtually the same shrimp as Red Cherry shrimp, Blue Pearl shrimp, or any other Neocaridina strain, they are very similar in breeding requirements and easily bred in the basic shrimp tank. Essentially, given a mix of sexes, clean water, and acceptable temperatures, these shrimp will readily reproduce.

Water Parameters

Being a Neocaridina species, the Rili shrimp requires similar conditions necessary to keep such shrimp as Red Cherry shrimp, Blue Pearl shrimp, Pumpkin shrimp, Chocolate shrimp, and Snowball shrimp. Temperatures are best kept in the range of 68-78 degrees Fahrenheit, although 64-80 degrees Fahrenheit is possible; do not, however, expect any breeding in these extremes. Clean water, of course, is absolutely necessary to keep these shrimp, as will all shrimp in this hobby.

 They seem to be pretty tolerant of ph like other neo's and do well from 6.5 to 7.5 parameters.

They start off looking similar to cherry shrimp, but after a few months most will get that great looking red and clear pattern, the clear pattern really make a berried females eggs stand out.

These will be a mix of juveniles to sub adults
