CRS (Crystal Red Shrimp)are indeed very sensitive to sudden swings in temp or PH especially to the high side as are Bee Shrimp also (Caridina cf. cantonensis). This I know from experience and gaining this experience was at the cost of dead shrimp.

I tried to change PH in a tank that kept raising to PH 7.2 to 7.6 with a fluorite substrate and my shrimp began dying one by one and the young also died....

I them set up a tank with ADA Amazonia substrate, RO water and a PH of 6.5 with temp of 72 and I now have continued success as mentioned above. Sudden swings may not affect RCS as bad, but it is not good for any species of Dwarf Shrimp in my experience.
