GarnelenhausOrange Rili shrimp

The Orange Rili dwarf shrimp is a new, true-breeding color morph of Neocaridina davidi (was: heteropoda). It is quite undemanding and breeds readily, like the well-known Red Fire Sakura/Cherry shrimp. In nature, Neocaridina shrimp are distributed in China, Taiwan and Korea in small streams, ponds and flooded grassland and reedy areas near those waters.

Their basic body color is transparent to slightly whitish, and they have patches of intensive, solid yellow-orange to orange in different parts of their body. Females may have a lighter-colored back line. All in all, the females are of a better color quality than the males.

The Orange Rili dwarf shrimp (Neocaridina davidi (was: heteropoda) var. orange rili), like most freshwater shrimp, is an omnivore and will eat just about any food. The species is very peaceful and undemanding, other aquarium inhabitants have nothing to fear from them. You can easily keep them together with fish that do not predate on shrimp.

Orange Rili shrimp do not have any special requirements regarding the aquarium decoration ... here you can use your imagination freely. The shrimp are happy with a little moss and driftwood ... and if there are some hiding-places like tubes or brown autumn leaves (oak or beech) in the tank, your Orange Rili shrimp will have everything they need.

When Orange Rili shrimp have adapted to their environment and when they are happy, the females will relase up to 30 almost fully developed shrimplets every 5 to 6 weeks. In well-planted tanks with lots of places to hide, some of the young shrimp will even grow up in the presence of fish. At first, the orange color is hardly visible, but it will intensify when the shrimp grows older. A small percentage of the offspring may be of a somewhat weaker color.
Our practical experience has shown that this number of surviving shrimp offspring is only realistic under the most optimal conditions. Usually, the shrimp will get berried every two to three months or so, and not all offspring will reach adulthood. Overpopulated Orange Rili shrimp tanks are thus not really a problem.

Our tip for keeping Orange Rili shrimp!
Orange Rili shrimp feel the happiest when the pH is between 7 and 7.5, a total hardness of 5 -10° dGH (German hardness) and a carbonate hardness of 2 - 6° dKH (German hardness). The temperature should be between 18 and 24° C ... varied food (predominantly of vegetable origin, and frozen food fed sparingly) contributes to heathly, vital, happy shrimp.

Ich habe 2 sehr schön gefärbte Tiere zur Ergänzung meiner Garnelentruppe erhalten. Sie kamen gut verpackt und wohl auf bei mir an. - Gerne wieder!

Alle lebend angekommen, sogar eine ganz kleine war dabei. Eine Garnele hat keine richtige Farbe. Hoffe das ändert sich noch, wenn sie ein paar Tage sich eingelebt haben. Sonst alles Top!

Sehr schöne, agile Tiere erhalten. Trotz Transport in voller Farbpracht angekommen. 12 bestellt, 13 erhalten. Es werden demnächst hoffentlich mehr, da eine werdende Mama dabei war.
Ich bin total begeistert und werde bestimmt wieder bestellen!

Die Tiere sind gut verpackt (getrennter Beutel von den gleichzeitig bestellten Carbon Rilis) und vor allem ohne Verluste angekommen. Es sind Garnelen aller Größen dabei, vom 1mm Mini (Herausforderung, die aus der Tüte zu "angeln") bis zum ausgewachsenen Tier. Färbung/Zeichnung entspricht grundsätzlich dem Produktbild, bei einigen ist die weiße "Bauchbinde" deutlich breiter.
Nach dem Einsetzen haben sie sich sofort über den Hemianthus-Cuba Rasen und ein Stück Gurke hergemacht. Alles TOP!

Schöne Garnelen, vielleicht nicht ganz so farbintensiv wie auf den Fotos. Das kann aber auch der Lieferstress noch sein.
