One of the most popular shrimp in the hobby is the Crystal Red Shrimp, sometimes called the Red Bee Shrimp. Its coloration and difficulty is what makes this a sought after shrimp for serious breeders and novices alike. Pictures do not do the Crystal Red Shrimp justice. Once you see this species in person you will realize why so many shrimp hobbyists are in love with the Crystal Red Shrimp. Its coloration is unlike any other shrimp in the hobby. I highly recommend that all shrimp hobbyists at some point acquire this species. 

Water Parameters

The Crystal Red Shrimp prefers soft acidic water. Clean water is also a must as with all shrimp in the hobby. However, the Crystal Red Shrimp may be the most vulnerable shrimp when housed in dirty water. Water changes are a must for this species. Temperature should be lower than 80F and the pH should range from 6.2 to 6.8, gH should be between 4-6 and kH should be between 1-2. It is very important that the Crystal Red Shrimp be housed in specific conditions. Extremes in either water parameters mentioned should be avoided.

These are  random sizes.

    Good and Healthy Shrimps!

    Posted by Brian on 13th Mar 2017

    I am pleased with my second order of these CRS. I ordered this one on March and one was ordered on January of 2017, both of them were good and healthy shrimps.

    The owner was kind enough to provide 1 extra (cute baby)for each order.

    I will continue to do business with them for sure.

    Very Nice RCS

    Posted by David on 1st May 2015

    I ordered 8 RCS, overnight Fedex. Ron included one extra, which exactly made up for the one DOA. They were exactly the size and grade described. They were packaged in breather bags with filter media to cling to, insulated. I acclimated them per the instructions on the website, and they seem to be doing fine.

    The buying experience was really good, as well. There was a problem with my order, and I was contacted fast enough to get my order out on time, and Ron was very responsive to emails. Gives you confidence that service and your business matters.

    Beautiful shrimp.

    They all arrived alive and well. Plus an extra shrimp.
    Thanks, that was cool. Packaging was insulated and included a warmth packet to protect the shrimp.
    One week after acclimation and they're all doing fine.
    The highest grade of shrimp I have purchased. I'm happy with the shrimp and customer service. I will continue to shop here.

    Superb CRS

    Posted by Paul B. on 18th May 2013

    LA has been hot and yet the Crystal Red Shrimp were chill in their little icy cool water and super active at that. I'm just so happy they made it so far and now exploring their new jungle. Thank you so much Alpha Pro Breeders! You guys really know how to hook people up.
