In my experience (which is limited compared to many others here), these stripes are sometimes found on females. i don't think it "means" anything. i think it's just another color variation/characteristic that sometimes occurs. HTH

I've got a handful of these. I wonder if it is from older age?

Those are some nice colored cherry shrimp! Keep up the good work!
The color might be because of the spectra pellets. The site says it "Contains 4 all natural color enhancing ingredients!".
Witch of these do you feed them?

Those are beautiful shrimp and a great tank! I just got my first cherries yesterday. I was wondering, are they supposed to swim around a lot? Every pic I see on the forums, the cherry shrimp are chilling out on the bottom. Mine spend as much time aswimming through the water as they do walking along the bottom.

Thanks. Mine swim around all the time. I would say it is normal. They could just be checking things out.

Your tank is excellent for breeding purposes. Lost of places to hide. Very nice. Love the shrimp too.

Thanks guys. They breed like crazy in there. The tank is very low maintenance. It has been running for over a year now without co2, ferts, and very few water changes (I usually just top it off). I wish I had some recent pics of it. I tied the coffefolia to a rock along with some firemoss on a rock. I also tied some anubias barteri (nana and petite) with firemoss on a long piece of fossilizied wood. The pieses fill in the background very nicely. I took the vals out and made the foreground microsword.

Nice tank! One question though, do your ghost shrimps eat any baby cherries by any chance?

I didnt notice them trying to eat any personally prolly because there were so many but it is possible. Ghost shrimp have also been known to eat small fish as well. I ended up taking mine out.
