Crystal Red Shrimp get their name from the beautiful red and white bands that cover the body like paint markings.
These delicate and fascinating freshwater shrimp are believed to have come from a mutation in a shrimp in Japan.
Over the years, the Crystal Red has gained popularity as the "next step up" when keeping freshwater shrimp. Because of their unique water needs we recommend the following parameters, or close to these parameters.
