Crystal red shrimp, also known as CRS, are a highly sought after species in the aquarium hobby due to their striking red and white coloration. These shrimp are small and active, making them a great addition to any planted aquarium or natural water feature.

Care Requirements:

Crystal red shrimp require a well-maintained aquarium with stable temperature and pH levels. They can be fed a variety of food sources, including algae, blanched vegetables, and high-quality shrimp pellets. These shrimp prefer soft, acidic water with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8.


Crystal red shrimp can coexist with a variety of other freshwater aquarium inhabitants, including fish, snails, and plants. However, they can be sensitive to changes in water parameters, so it's important to monitor the water quality and avoid adding any aggressive or territorial species to the tank.
