Crystal Black Shrimp

Product Description

Crystal Black Shrimp

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

The grading scale for CBS 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 black the shrimp will have. So, a C grade shrimp will be almost all black 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.

Simply the best

Great coloration, healthy, and hardy. Always an extra one or two in the bag in case there's a DOA. I NEVER hesitate to order from Flip if my LFS doesn't have what I need.

Great Shrimp

All of my shrimp arrived happy and healthy, they are all doing well in my tank! This was my first time getting caridina and thankfully everything is perfect for them!

Healthy top quality specimens

Got the starter packs: 10 CRS and 5 CBS. All healthy, beautiful specimens in assorted grades, S to SSS. Got a bonus of three extra shrimps. Mostly tiny juvies, they will probably take a month a grow out. Stunning coloration and markings, I can't wait for them to get to adult size. The shrimps were securely packed (thanks to Mike), in a stryofoam box with a heating pad. Thank you all at Flip Aquatics for quality livestock and products. Keep up the good work. ;-)
