Bloody Mary - Low Grade
These are the reddest in the cherry family. If you think painted fire red can’t be beat, you have to see these deep red (almost like blood) shrimps. Even the male Bloody Mary’s are red, this separates them from the rest of the cherry family as male shrimps in other varieties normally are much less colourful.
These shrimps aren't just red, if you observe closely you can see that the shell is actually differnt from regular high grade cherry such as Painted Fire Red. These shrimps have shell that seems translucent, the red colour looks like to be shining from within the shrimp. Short of a better description, it's like it has a red led light inside the shrimp. Some people say these shrimps have red flesh, we're yet to confirm that as we won't kill a shrimp to prove that.
Because these shrimps are from the same family as the cherry shrimps, keeping and breeding are very easy. They can also tolerate a much wider range of water parameters. This is a very good choice for hobbyists who want to have a fast breeding tank of red. They look fantastic in a planted tank too.
