The Crystal Red Shrimp (Caridina cf. cantonensis “Crystal Red”) is another popular and striking freshwater aquarium shrimp. Similar to the Crystal Black Shrimp, Crystal Reds belong to the Caridina genus and are selectively bred for their unique coloration. Here are some key characteristics and care tips for Crystal Red Shrimp:

  1. Coloration: Crystal Red Shrimp have a distinctive red and white color pattern. The intensity of the red and the clarity of the white bands can vary, and like Crystal Black Shrimp, they exhibit a crystal-like appearance.
  2. Grading System: Crystal Red Shrimp are often graded based on their coloration. The grading system typically ranges from lower grades, which may have more transparent or less intense coloration, to higher grades, which have vibrant red coloration and clear white bands.
  3. Size: Adult Crystal Red Shrimp typically reach a size of around 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3.8 cm).
  4. Water Parameters:
    • Temperature: 64-78°F (18-25°C)
    • pH: 6.2-7.8
    • Hardness: Soft to medium-hard water is preferred (GH 4-6, KH 0-4)
  5. Tank Setup:
    • Provide hiding places like moss, driftwood, or other decorations.
    • Use a fine substrate like sand to allow them to forage.
    • Maintain good water quality, as Crystal Red Shrimp are sensitive to changes in water parameters.
  6. Diet:
    • Feed a balanced diet, including high-quality shrimp pellets, algae wafers, and blanched vegetables.
    • They also benefit from biofilm and microorganisms present in a well-established tank.
  7. Breeding:
    • Crystal Red Shrimp breed readily in a suitable environment.
    • Female shrimp carry eggs under their abdomen until they hatch into miniature versions of the adults.
  8. Compatibility:
    • Keep Crystal Red Shrimp in a dedicated shrimp tank, as they may be preyed upon by larger fish.
    • They can be kept with other peaceful aquarium inhabitants, such as small community fish.
  9. Water Changes:
    • Perform regular water changes to maintain water quality and remove any accumulated waste.
  10. Acclimation:
    • When introducing new shrimp to your tank, acclimate them slowly to prevent stress.
