Default First Crystal Red Shrimp!!

Got my first crystal red shrimp today. Found it in an aquarium shop labled as "bumblebee shrimp" O.o cant believe they didnt see that it was red and not black.... jeeze what a muck up on their part. Actually i cant believe they had shrimp in the first place. Crazy world...

Anyways will it hybridize with the cherries, or the 1 tiger shrimp i have in the tank? I have a hunch not with the cherries but possibly with the tiger... though im not sure on this.

Also what quality is it? C,B,A,S,SS? (doubt the last 3 haha)

Here is a pic of it!!

Nice shrimp. Your hunch is correct. It won't mix with cherries, but likely the tiger. I would classify it as a Grade C, due to lack of white stripes and opaqueness. Congrats on your new shrimp.

I second that, it's definitely C-grade. i can't believe you found these in an LFS though

Hmm ok C grade, ahhh well MAUHAHAHAH got a CRS.

I will get more later this week hopefully, i plan to breed these things to perfection.

John N.:
I see your avatar is a very stunning S grade shrimp, do you have any tips? Also how many tanks did you have when breeding them? Which shrimp did you remove and put into another tank? The parents or the babies?

Very nice.

It's also very satisfying when I read about someone picking up a great bargain due to an lfs mistake......we do spend enough at them after all.

Congrats. It's nice to see that these things are finally being offered to the general public. That means that these are finally starting to be bred on a commercial scale if the pet stores are getting them.

Hmm... apparently they order directly from japan. Seems they have an import permit and can get ahold of just about any plant, fish, or shrimp that i want. They even have an impressive plant selection and sell plant products. Suppose i could ask them for ADA products...

Looks like i hit the jackpot ^^

Default It is not a CRS

Sorry for killing all the hype and things, but that shrimp looks a lot like a New bee with red on the bands. It is common to find them with bumble bees. Bumble bees can have some bluish, redish tint in their color instead of the normal brown.

The new bee( how some places outside the USA call them) is a very nice shrimp. According to most sites they are from the caridina serrata family.

This has a picture of a similar shrimp to yours.

Cheers,
