Crystal Black Shrimp
Crystal Black Shrimp (Caridina cantonensis) are notorious for their striking black and white coloration that makes them stand out magnificently against any backdrop or substrate. We have offered these special shrimp in the past, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to offer them again to our newer customers!
Higher grades of Crystal Black Shrimp actually have more white coverage and less black coverage, and can be very difficult to keep as they are much more sensitive than these.
We also have the same type of shrimp in red and white, called a “Crystal Red Shrimp.” They will breed with these and produce either black/white or red/white offspring only, making an absolutely gorgeous-looking colony of striped shrimp.
