5 Crystal Red Shrimp

Product Description

Please Note: These shrimp are still going through our 30 Day Quarantine. If ordered, they will ship between April 15th to 17th

You will receive five (5) Crystal Red Shrimp, also known as CRS. The pet shrimp you will receive will be sub adults, having a size around a half of an inch (.5 inches). The shrimp generally range from S to SS grade in pattern.

Crystal red shrimp are stunning in color and pattern. They are the red mutation of the wild bee shrimp. Most hobbyists refer to crystal red shrimp as CRS. The CRS is an entry level freshwater shrimp for the Caridina genus. When a hobbyist is making the transition from Neocaridina to Caridina, the crystal red shrimp is a great option to start with. While crystal red require a lower PH, they can still live in condition that are slightly alkaline (PH above 7). 

The grading scale for CRS is somewhat difficult to comprehend at first. Here are the grades in order of highest to lowest: SSS, SS, S, A, B and C. The higher the grade (SSS), the less red the shrimp will have. So, a C grade shrimp will be almost all red while an SSS grade shrimp will be almost completely white. The other way to grade the shrimp is by color and how solid the color is versus being transparent in color. Shrimp with poor color are usually culled (separated) from the colony.

Awesome Shrimp!

I ordered 10 Crystal Red Shrimp and it came with two extra. All the shrimp arrived alive and look amazing(great color and patterns). Only had one shrimp die during acclimation but I am very happy with my shrimp and cant wait to watch them grow.

Arrived on time and alive

Shrimp arrived on time and alive. We received two extra shrimp. After the drip acclimation and double checking of the tank parameters, shrimp were transferred to their new home. All 12 are still alive 6 days later. Thanks!

Shrimpys For The WIN!

At first, I was like, dang $6 for a shrimp!? No way. I decided to go for it and wow, am I glad I did. I received all 30 of my little red and white friends in great condition, 100% alive. They did a SUPER job of packaging, something that I haven't always experienced in the past from other sellers. Its been 2 weeks since they were added and I only lost 1 that I can tell (probably my fault). Will definitely order again :)
