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.

Crystal Red Shrimp

Awesome shrimp!

I ordered these crystal red shrimp to start a breeding colony. They all arrived alive. The job that Flip Aquatics does packaging these shrimp is AMAZING!! I wish all packages were treated with such care! All the shrimp were alive and thriving. I got them all acclimated and they're doing great. Flip is the ONLY place I buy shrimp from. They are the BEST

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!
