Crystal Black Shrimp (CBS) - SS grade Hinomaru with vibrant black and white color.
Crystal Black Shrimp prefer clean, soft acidic water with a pH of 6 - 6.8, and gH of 4 - 6, they require cool temperature between 68 and 78 degrees F.
Aquarium must be fully cycled with a lot of biofilms and plants for them to graze on. Ammonia and nitrite should always be zero, nitrate under 25ppm. Weekly water change of 10-20% is suggested to keep the nitrate low. Feed only 2-3 times a week as overfeeding will cause shrimp death.
Breeding Crystal Black Shrimp is fairly easy as long as the water parameters are stable. Female shrimp will carry the eggs for about 30 days until they are hatched to miniature size of their parents. It is important to have a well established aquarium in order for the shrimplets to survive as they can only consume biofilms until they grow older.

They all came very active, after a slow drip acclimation, 3 days in and they are all accounted for and doing well, wasn’t expecting some of them to be as small as they were, not a major concern though. They all look great and nice addition to the CRSs in the the tank. Najee on 14th Jun 2020
Absolutely beautiful in color, pattern, and opacity. We'll definitely be ordering a few more as we're completely impressed. The only small hiccup we had was a misunderstanding on skipping needing a signature, but Jason answered promptly reassuring us. Sara & Brian on 7th Apr 2018
