  • Product Description

    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.

    1. Arrived alive and healthy. Very satisfied.

      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. 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! on 12th Dec 2019

    3. Great Customer Service and Beautiful Shrimp!

      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 :) on 18th Nov 2019

    5. great

      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. on 11th Oct 2019

    6. Great Quality and Customer Service

      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. on 5th Sep 2019

    7. Best Deal and Quality

      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. on 20th Jun 2019
