Red Crystal Shrimps Grade S to SS
The Crystal Red Shrimp is a one of the most popular and coveted shrimp for the hobbyist, due to their bold, unique coloring and the challenge of raising them. Crystal Red Shrimp require very specific water parameters and near perfect water quality. They are ideally kept in a Crystal Red Shrimp-only tank because of their precise care needs. However, they are non-aggressive and active shrimp. These shrimp are not recommended for beginners, particularly because their high price point and difficult care requirements means that there is little room for mistakes.
However, with a little experience under your belt these gorgeous shrimp are worth the extra effort.
Crystal Red Shrimp are omnivores and require a well-balanced diet. Specialized Crystal Red Shrimp food will help keep their coloring vibrant. Other options for food are algae flakes, blanched vegetables, and bloodworm. Feeding once per day or even every other day should be enough, especially if you have a mature planted tank with lots of plant waste, algae and biofilm for the shrimp to clean up. Be sure to remove any excess food that is left after feeding, as this can increase ammonia and nitrite levels. Excess food means that the shrimp are being overfed, which can damage their health and even kill them. When your shrimp molt out of their shell, make sure to leave the shells in the tank. They provide the necessary calcium in the shrimp’s diet.
Crystal Red Shrimp are easy breeders given the proper water parameters. Crystal Red Shrimp fry need places to hide in the tank, and any potential predators can prevent these shrimp from breeding at all. The baby shrimp will hatch as mini-versions of their parents, ready to snack on algae and any other food sources. But, you won’t be able to grade them until they grow larger. Because breeding is selective, it is possible to breed two lower grade shrimp to produce some high grade. Successfully breeding high grade Crystal Red Shrimp can be a lucrative hobby, as these creatures are highly valued in the shrimp hobby.
Crystal Red Shrimp make an impressive addition to an experienced shrimp hobbyist’s aquarium. If you are looking for more of a challenge than Red Cherry shrimp varieties, Crystal Red Shrimp are a great place to start. Although these shrimp require more care and attention, keeping these stunning and active shrimp can be extremely rewarding.
