The Red Neck Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi (formerly heteropoda) var. red neck) is, like most other aquarium shrimp species, an absolute omnivore, a very peaceful and very uncomplicated species. Conspecifics and other aquarium dwellers have nothing to fear here. An attitude together with fish that do not adjust the Red Neck Shrimp, is easily possible.

The Red Neck Shrimp do not place special demands on the equipment in the aquarium ... here you can make your own way. A bit of Moss and burl wood is enough for them ... if there are still some hiding places (for example tubes) or leaves (beech or oak) in the aquarium, the Red Neck Shrimp will not miss anything.

If the Red Neck Shrimp have settled in and feel well, the female releases about every 5 to 6 weeks up to 30 fully developed kittens, of which in a well-planted pool (hiding places), even with fish stocking, still many young animals come through , Initially, the red color is hardly pronounced, but becomes more intense with age. A certain smaller percentage of the young animals falls in color but sometimes back slightly and shows less intense red, or shows in the abdomen in places again red games.
In practice it turns out that the propagation rate is rather a value under really optimal conditions and is usually more likely with a litter every 2 - 3 months, from which then not all young animals reach adulthood; an "overpopulation" is therefore usually unlikely
