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.

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

I received all 10 + 1 shrimp alive and well. The shrimp are small for acclamation purposes but they all have great colors already! Unknown on 10th May 2019
Even though the post office took their sweet time getting these to me and it was in the middle of a freak snowstorm (in mid APRIL!) all 33 shrimp arrived alive and well. I had ordered 3 different types, Blue Bolt, Crystal Red & Orange Sakura. I ordered 10 of each, received 11 of each. All acclimated well following the instructions that came with them and all appear to be alive and well (I didn't take a head count) today, over a week later. Unknown on 20th Apr 2019
Ordered 10 and recieved 11 shrimp. All have great color and made it to Texas alive. Doing well after drip acclimation and even had one molt today. Would definitely order from again. Brian on 18th Apr 2019
All my shrimp arrived alive and kicking after I added them to the tank they started looking for a meal. I put in some snowflake food and they all started eating. After they finished it all they looked for more every where in the tank. So beautiful only place I'm going to buy from John on 15th Apr 2019
This seller is the real deal. Shrimp arrive small: this is preferred, they will acclimate to your tank conditions. This seller is able to breed thousands of shrimp and sell them: if your shrimp die in your tank, it is because of YOUR tank conditions being inhospitable. I am so happy that I found this seller. I will buy from here for life so long as soshrimp stays in business. David on 12th Apr 2019
I just received my order and I am very happy with the care So shrimp took packing them. The shrimp all got here without problem and are looking great.
Thank you so much for your care John on 12th Apr 2019
