Crystal Red Shrimp

Product Description

Crystal Red Shrimp

You will receive 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.

Excellent Shrimp!

We received 11 healthy crystal reds. The day they arrived the air was chilly and the bag itself was pretty cold but we warmed it up for 3-4 hours before drip acclimating and they are all doing great a week later! Thanks so much!

Order was over $100 and received free shipping. Shrimp were all alive and looked awesome! Could not be happier. Can't wait to place my next order for Blue Bolts And Black Pandas!

Lovely pair of crystal red shrimp

This pair of CRS arrived happy and healthy! They acclimated quickly and my family and I love watching them busily graze algae all over the aquarium. They love exploring the nooks and crannies of their lava rocks. They have so much personality!

Excellent Quality

I received 12 shrimp in my order for 10. Sadly, over the next two days after the arrival of the shrimp, 4 died. It has now been around a month and a half, and the remaining eight have been doing fantastic. One has even gotten berried! The customer service was excellent and fast-working. Overall a great experience.

Crystal Red Shrimp

I love them. As of now, they are my favorite. Unfortunately, half of the shrimp which were in one bag died. The other bag was fine. I believe that was because some of the shrimp decided to molt in the bag. I don't think there was anything that could have been done. However, the DOA policy was not hard to follow. Thanks to Amanda's help I got replacements when I ordered some more food that I had wanted to try out. I have not had anymore die offs since the initial issue.
