Product Overview


English name: Red Rili

Scientific Name
Neocaridina Heteropoda var. "Rili"

Origin: Selectively bred color mutation of Yellow and orange neos.

Size male/female: 0.8 inch / .9 in

Water temperature:68-78F

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

    Beautiful coloring. Healthy shrimp.

    Such great quality shrimp. Very healthy. All arrived alive and are now thriving in their new home. I am very happy to have received both young and mature shrimp, as well as both males and females. Two day ground shipping was easy on my wallet but most importantly easy on the shrimp. They arrived alive and acclimated very well. Excellent customer service. Looking forward to my next purchase.

    Thanks Alpha Pro

    Posted by Stephen on 26th Sep 2013

    Great shrimp at a reasonable price. This has to be the best buying experience I have had. Ron came through again. I could buy these a little cheaper here locally, but the customer service and integrity of Ron and all at Alpha Pro is priceless! Thank you so much.

    Impressive shipping

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Feb 2013

    These guys shipped the Monday following the weekend when I ordered them. I was cheap and got FedEx ground, so they ended up arriving that Friday. Amazingly, only one died in the 5 days in transit between Ohio and Seattle (in February!). One extra was thrown in, so the total number of live shrimp on delivery was the same as the number I ordered (10).

    The shrimp that I got ranged from very young (so small I could barely net one of them) to significantly older-looking, although I'm new to shrimp so I can't be more specific.

    Overall I'm very happy and impressed, I would order from this site again!
