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.

all shrimp came in well and acclimated nicely. Very pleased Troy Rong on 24th Jul 2020
They were very well packed and arrived healthy and active with very little extra time sitting around in the box thanks to clear communication about shipping. They acclimated well to their new home and are eating well. They are juveniles but quality specimens exactly as described and shown in the pictures. I will be ordering more from SoShrimp when I can!

I am always pleased with soshrimp.com. I ordered 5 (more) crystal red shrimp and they arrived healthy and active. They readily adapted to their new home. The purchase was simple, I received clear shipping notices so was prepared for a live shipment. I had zero problems.
and the shrimp themselves are adorable. KarylLena on 13th Jun 2020
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
