Very rare in the hobby! Basically a Red Cherry shrimp, but a deeper red color seems to be the entire shrimp
instead of just the outer shell. Mine that I received are adults and approximately 25% larger than my adult cherry shrimp.
Some people add these to their cherry red shrimp collection to try to improve size and color, I'm keeping mine separate, my red cherries are already very red, but just not as large. Same Neo-Cardinia family.
Sakura Shrimp 10 + 2 Free $59.00 Sakuras ( aprox. -1/2")
These will look like regular Cherry shrimp for about 4 months, then they will start to turn into
the most beautiful shrimp you have seen.

I ordered 10 sakuras, overnight Fedex. Ron included two extra, which more than made up for the one DOA. They were packaged in breather bags with filter media to cling to, insulated. I acclimated them per the instructions on the website, and they seem to be doing fine. (I ordered 8 RCS as well - see my review there).
The buying experience was really good, as well. There was a problem with my order, and I was contacted fast enough to get my order out on time, and Ron was very responsive to emails. Gives you confidence that service and your business matters.

So, I was a total doof and ordered these guys in January while the weather was in the teens. I was contacted with my ship date for the following (warmer) week, which was wonderful that they checked the temps whereas I did not.
Shrimp were SUPERBLY packed, and even in their tiny baby state....are already vibrantly red. And you know the great thing? They're only going to get redder as they grow.
SO pleased with my order! It's also worth noting that despite frigid nighttime temps (which couln't be avoided) every single shrimp made it alive and active. EVERY.....SINGLE.....ONE. :D

As expected, the service was great and all shrimps arrived alive and very active.
A very tiny baby extra (in addition to the extra that APB gives you) was in the bag and even that period size shrimp is alive and well.
Best Quality shrimps that I have seen in my years in the hobby. I will buy from APB and no others.

Great packaging for a 2 day trip to the northeast during a cold snowy trip. All shrimp alive, active and kicking right out of the box. Thanks for the freebie also! Will order again.

I have never been disappointed ordering from Alpha Pro Breeders. The shrimp were alive, very colorful healthy and active. Don't hesitate to order from these guys.

Very nice shrimp

My Sakuras and CRS arrived securely packaged. I should have opted for overnight shipping as the 2 day still took 3 days and 1 sad Shakura shrimp was DOA. It's ok because Ron was kind enough to send an extra. They are small and cute. I can't wait for them to grow and get more red. So far I'm pleased and will purchase more shrimp from APB again. Thanks Ron

I received my Sakuras just this past Tuesday. They were as securely packed as anything I've ever gotten, and they made the trip with no casualties. They have settled into their new home within 24 hours, and are wonderful to watch. Even though they are small, they still have beautiful color. I couldn't be more satisfied.

Even though FedEx crushed the package and popped the bag with my Sakura, half of them survived without much water. Very healthy shrimp to survive that kind of stress. Also, the java moss had several babies hiding in it that survived too. Beautiful specimens
