View Full Version : CRS status?

so i ended up getting a half dozen Crystal Red shrimp over the course of the last month. fairly certain they are all C grade, maybe one B as they don't have very strong red coloration, its fairly mottled and transparent.

but i'm curious to know, how do i tell if they are doing well? as i understand it, they are fairly fragile shrimp, so if they are still alive they are obviously "ok". but how do i identify when problems are showing up?

and is there anythin i can do to enhance thier coloration, or is it pretty much what you see is what you get? beginning to wish i'd held my hand and gotten cherries like i had planned as i know i bit more bout them.

I found this site for you and thought it might be worth a read. It has a small section on what to feed, and also a comparison scale at the bottom of the page showing the difference in Crystal Red Shrimp grades. HTH
