Crystal Red Shrimp (CRS) - S grade V band with vibrant red and white color.
Crystal Red 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 Red 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.

Awesome shrimp! Cool moss too! Great price! FAST shipping and NO DOA. Also, received a SUPER COOL ORANGE SAKURA SHRIMP IN THE BAG, SO I JUST ORDERED 10 MORE.
AWESOME! Terry D on 12th May 2020
Nice quality colorful shrimps, excellent packaging, every time I order from this company all of them arrived alive and full of energy. Before I ordered from different companies that they don't package them well and 50% arrived dead and the other 50 % very lethargic and died few days later but this company really know what they are doing. highly recommended. They also give you a couple of shrimps extra. Ivan on 11th Feb 2020
This is my second order of CRS from soshrimp. Both times the shrimp arrived alive and healthy, and all have remained alive a few weeks now and are exploring, foraging and molting like healthy shrimp should. Highly recommend as a source for CRS. Unknown on 17th Dec 2019
These are BY FAR the ABSOLUTE BEST shrimp I have EVER received in all the shrimp I have ever purchased anywhere. If I ever want to more shrimp, SoShrimp is the ONLY way to go. FAST SHIPPING AND HEALTHY BEAUTIFUL QUALITY SHRIMP. I have purchased shrimp online and have always received DOA shrimp. Then another 1/2 of them die in the next 24 to 72 hours. NOT THESE SHRIMP! After drip acclimating them and placing them in the tank, NOT A SINGLE dead shrimp. I ordered 20, received 22, and ALL ARE ALIVE, ACTIVE, AND THRIVING. Oh, and one final thing, the grade for these shrimp is AWESOME and ABOVE the pictures online. These are just BEAUTIFUL SHRIMP!! GREAT JOB SOSHRIMP!!! You are my ONLY shrimp store!

I ordered 10 CRS S+ Grade and I received exactly what I ordered. You can't always control everything that happens. This seller stands by their DOA policy and quickly made it right. These shrimp are beautiful and are doing great. I am so happy with my purchase and that I chose to buy them here. Buy with confidence :) JOSHUA HARVEY on 18th Nov 2019
Great company to do business with. Packages well and great quality. Cody Veach on 30th Oct 2019
Was a little skeptical at first when they arrived and did not have good color for S+. But after about two weeks they brightened up very nicely at fit in with the other S-SS+ shrimp I had in there. Now I can’t tell which came from who. Unknown on 11th Oct 2019
Great experience with the seller and excellent quality shrimp. All shrimp arrived healthy, none were DOA, and were shipped responsibly. All shrimp have acclimated well and I would order again from the seller. The seller was responsive to inquiries on shipping and delivery schedules. Unknown on 5th Sep 2019
When starting a new tank that I want to keep crystals in, this is my go to package. I bought 3 - 10 S+ CRS packs. 33 S+ to SS quality shrimp arrived alive and happy. When ordering this pack I always get healthy S+ shrimp with a few SS shrimps. Christopher on 20th Jun 2019
Reasonably priced, high quality shrimp with one extra in the bag. This was a great experience and I will be ordering from SoShrimp very soon in the future. Sean on 19th Jun 2019
