Crystal Red Shrimp (CRS) - SS grade Hinomaru 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.

I have purchased many from So Shrimp #1 in my book. Thanks Jason Chris on 31st Mar 2020
These are beautiful shrimp. This is my second time ordering off there website the first time I ordered I found on Amazon. All 3 times I have ordered from SoShrimp I have gotten all alive and an extra. I picked up 3 different kinds. As long as your tanks are set up correctly you should have no problem. In about a month I started to see eggs, I am waiting to see them hatch I cant wait. I use a lot of the same plants they sell along with a few other plants I have picked up my tanks all look to be doing great. Thank you for the quick order along with beautiful looking shrimp.

All shrimp arrived alive + 1 extra. They were very opaquely colored and mostly young (a few months old). Will always go to SoShrimp over any other breeder. Chris on 14th May 2019
I ordered these CRS SS grade shrimp and they all arrived alive and well. Excellent quality colors on these SS CRS. I will definitely purchase from again. FS on 14th Mar 2019
I ordered 5 Crystal reds and got 6. The mail was delayed due to holidays. They were in a small box for 4 days at freezing temps. The bags were surrounded with styrofoam squares so was somewhat insulated. Of the 20 total shrimp I ordered only 1 was DOA and that bag had an extra shrimp, so all was good. The shrimp acclimated fast and were already eating the algae off one of my rocks within an hour! The colors are spot on or better than SS grade IMO. Max C on 14th Nov 2018
They came with healthy3 and perfect color. Love how soshrimp provides extra <3.
Gonna buy more from SoShrimp. Unknown on 23rd Aug 2018
I buy from Soshrimp all the time when I need crs. The seller provides extra even though I never had a DOA. I will keep ordering from here Jackie on 9th May 2018
This is the second time I ordered these SS shrimps from soshrimp. Quality is great and no DOA. Received two extra shrimps. Ravie Xiong on 2nd May 2018
The seller is very considerate. I told them to include both male and female for my order, including SS CRS, yellow king kong, blue bee blot, RCS and orange rili, and they did a great job for my selections. The seller also sent nice java moss in the bag to relieve shrimps during shipping. I really like their care for the shrimps.
In my experience, Soshrimp outcompetes Aquatic Arts by lower price and higher quality.
The shipping took 2 days w/o DOA. Great job, soshrimp! Unknown on 2nd Feb 2018
These shrimp arrived healthy, acclimated well, and are all still alive and thriving. Alex on 9th Dec 2017
