Crystal Red Shrimp
Crystal red shrimp, with their sharp contrast red and white stripe pattern, are a difficult exotic shrimp to breed. For that reason they command a higher price than some of the solid color patterned fancy shrimp. These shrimp look beautiful in planted tanks and on dark wood and gravel with their solid white and red color pattern. Do not keep fancy shrimp with cichlids of any kind, for those fish they just look like food no matter what the color.
