Sakura shrimp are easy to care for in the home freshwater aquarium and breed well, reaching about 4 centimetres (1.6 in) long.
Small, non-aggressive fish such as the harlequin rasbora, neon tetra, cardinal tetra, dwarf corydoras, otocinclus catfish, dwarf gouramis, and some species of killifish can be kept with adult shrimp, however baby shrimp are likely to be eaten by any fish.
They prefer clean water, with a temperature of 14–29 °C (57–84 °F). Java moss and Java fern are both excellent plants for the shrimp tank, as they thrive in the same conditions as the cherry shrimp. Ensure there are plenty of hiding places.
Shrimp are primarily algae eaters. They will eat any food intended for aquarium use, but some will prefer compressed algae discs (algae wafers). Blanched (boiled until soft) vegetables such as zucchini (courgette), baby carrots, peas and spinach can be used as a supplemental food, but should be fed sparingly.
