Searching for Crystal Red Shrimp (Caridina Cantonensis) for sale? These beautiful shrimps are one of the most popular Caridina Shrimp in the hobby due to their distinctive red and white coloration. They almost look like candy canes with legs! :)

The Crystal Red Shrimp Shrimp is a dwarf freshwater shrimp native to Taiwan. Due to their original habitat, these shrimp thrive in planted tanks with a variety of shelter options and hiding spots. Our Aquarium Plant Variety Packs can help you create the ideal environment for your shrimp.

Red Crystal Shrimp do best in soft and acidic water conditions, and they are highly sensitive to water changes. Following our recommended tank water parameters can help your shrimp grow and breed successfully. 

Crystal Red Shrimp Shrimp require very little feeding as long as your tank contains enough algae, biofilm, or decaying plant matter. We recommend feeding every other day with high-quality shrimp food, as this can ensure a balanced diet and even keep higher grades more vibrant. 

Great for planted and community tanks, you can place your peaceful and friendly Crystal Red Shrimp Shrimp with mates like Kuhli Loaches, Corydoras, and other dwarf shrimp.

Our Crystal Red Shrimp Shrimp are shipped as Juveniles at a size of around 1/4 inch in length.
