5 Crystal Black Shrimp

 

Size: juvie/sub-adult

   

Shrimp Information:

These are our home bred shrimp, solid looking colors and healthy.

Crystal Black 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 Black 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.

 

Water parameters we keep our Crystal Black include:

TDS 140 - 190

GH 4 - 6

KH 0

PH 6.2 - 6.5

 

What We Feed Our shrimp:

We feed our shrimp a variety of foods, including fresh veggies, dried veggies, A.C. Exclusive Blend, and Lowkeys Ultra Supple.

Great experience with aquarium creation

I ordered 5 crystal black shrimp and 5 yellow neos. The yellow neos must have gone out of stock in between ordering and packaging but I was refunded for them. Aquarium creation notified me via email every step of the way for the shipping and includes a USPS tracking number.

The shrimps survived the journey just fine. They come in a plastic bag part way filled with water and some mesh in there for them to maneuver through. The bag itself is packed in a box with soft insulating foam such that, despite the actual box being pretty banged up from the mailing process, they all survived. As another user mentioned, I got 6 instead of 5, which I appreciated. You also get a small sample of food (just a couple pellets).

As I acclimated them, they looked happy and healthy. After floating the bag to come to temperature, I gradually added a few milliliters of tank water into their bag. After a good length of time doing this, I finally cut a slit in their plastic bag and let them jump into their tank on their own volition. One by one, I watched them jump down into their new home (I bribed them by putting some food just below the bag).

I have only had them a few days, but have been able to count at least 4 at a time as recently as last night. I presume they are all alive as my tank has many hiding spots and the ones I find are happily grazing. As a first time shrimp owner, they are much smaller than I expected! Some times they are hard to find.

Overall, I am very satisfied with aquarium creation. If I choose to get more I will certainly come back to try and get some of those yellow neos once they are in stock.

Hi Ryan, Thank you for the detailed feedback, we really appreciate it! We are really happy to hear the shrimp made the journey to their new home and that they are doing well. Sorry we couldn't send the Yellow Neos, but we're working on getting more soon. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email - happy to help!

Wonderful Little Shrimp!

All the shrimp were delivered on time, alive and well (even got an extra in the order, just in case one didn't make it!). Will definately recommend Aquarium Creation and will order again in the future.
