Crystal Red Shrimp (CRS) - SSS grade Mosura 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 order 10 and 11 came in with my order. All alive and sss+ great Quality Unknown on 4th Aug 2019
I just got my shipment, and it came with an extra shrimp, all good and doing great.
great SSS+, a little bit dull on the color red, but once they were on the tank, they started to gain the color back.
Great breeder. Raul on 14th Jun 2019
ALL SHRIMP ARRIVED ALIVE + 1 EXTRA. When they arrived they were not very opaque and were a sad brown color instead of red, however this was probably due to the stress of shipping. Fed them and within a day they were back to their vivid, opaque red and white colors. WILL ALWAYS GO TO SOSHRIMP OVER ANY OTHER BREEDER. Chris on 14th May 2019
The shrimp a little bit on the small size but being small they have better chance to survive because they go in to molting often growing up. It's make you wonder where the hell all my high dollar shrimp at and make you mind wondering about your water TDS and PH level but overall I happy with quality of marking,I will buy from this people again.

I ordered SSS+ grade Crystal Red Shrimp and they all survived the trip to CA. I did two day shipping, but managed to intercept them at the post office after one day. It's been a week or so and they've all survived. Accurately graded, healthy, and active. Tim on 20th Sep 2016
