Our Delivery Promise To You

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.

Shrimp are shipped Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only. If you order other goods at the same time via express, we will dispatch everything together.

Shrimp originate from Japan and Asia where they are found living naturally living in streams and swamps. They have gained popularity due to their lovely colour but also their appetite for all kinds of algae - this makes them perfect for the planted aquarium. They are peaceful and are a great addition to any peaceful freshwater aquarium.

These shrimp prefer a well-planted tank with lots of hiding places. They should be housed with small peaceful fish which will not pose a threat of eating these shrimp - they can be housed with larger fish but they will hide and may end up being dinner. They prefer water that is slightly acidic but will handle a wide range of water temperatures. Cherry shrimp breed in freshwater providing they are happy with their water conditions and their environment. They are omnivores and consume algae and any fish food they can find or scavenge. We recommend you supplement their diet with one of the shrimp foods available here at Aqua Essentials.

Note about colours - Cherry shrimp will vary enormously. Sometimes in our shipments the colours are really red and others times a lot more diluted. By cross-breeding, you can achieve the best results at home by selecting the best colours you have and breeding those specific shrimp to produce better colours.

We also have a wonderful acclimatisation product that you would find very useful and something I recommend. Click here for more info.

Ok but...

Bought these & amano shrimp. Delivery was delayed due to cold weather which i can forgive but when arrived there was no heat packs at all apart from shredded paper. Acclimatised an settling in less than a day now but thought due to the price of these which are dearer than my LFS and the price of P&P that they would have atleast had heat packs in the box. Especially Aqua Essientials delaying the order due to the weather, a heat pack or two would'nt have gone a miss. Never the less we shall see how they do but i cannot give 5 stars for this reason.

Arrived quickly and well packaged, a great addition to the fish tank. All shrimp were in very good condition and have happily joined the little eco system. Also purchased some shrimp food which was a good purchase.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
