Crystal Red Shrimp

Crystal Red Shrimp is a popular species of dwarf shrimp for freshwater aquariums. They’re very small but are still packed full of beauty.

They are actually a colour variant of the Bee Shrimp (Caridina cantonensis), a member of the Atyidae family.

Crystal Red Shrimp have a short lifespan in home aquariums. Expect them to survive for 18-24 months, but they need excellent care to reach the 2-year mark.

Maintaining the right water conditions should, therefore, be a top priority. Use a water testing kit each week to check that the water parameters are where they should be.



Layer the bottom of the tank with a soft sandy substrate as this is least likely to scratch. On top of this, you can scatter around various rocks and debris to create caves and hiding spots that your shrimps can use as shelter.

DOA Policy for Live Fish shipping

At Aquaholics, we place utmost importance on the careful shipping of live fish to ensure their safe arrival. Our commitment to quality includes taking various measures during transit. Each fish bag is infused with medical-grade oxygen and an ammonia-neutralizing solution. In colder periods, we also utilize heat packs to maintain optimal temperatures. However, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes lead to unfortunate outcomes. To provide you with peace of mind, we have implemented a Dead-on Arrival (DOA) policy that ensures you are covered in such situations.


  1. Owner's Presence: It is essential for the owner or an authorised representative to be available at the provided shipping address to receive the fish. If no one is available, the courier will leave your parcel in a safe space as all fish orders are shipped ATL.
  2. Shipping Address: Please provide a valid street address for shipping. Ensure the address is accurate and complete to avoid any delivery issues.
  3. Reporting DOA: If you receive a fish that is dead on arrival, please notify us promptly. Within 2 hours of receiving the fish, send an email to our customer support team. Include the following details in your email:
    • Name: Your full name
    • Order Number: The unique order number associated with your purchase
    • DOA Fish Picture: Attach a clear picture of the deceased fish

Terms and Conditions:

  1. Timely Notification: Please make your DOA claim within 2 hours of receiving the fish. Claims submitted after this timeframe will not be eligible for compensation.
  2. Proper Documentation: Ensure that your email includes accurate and complete information, including your name, order number, email, and a clear picture of the deceased fish. Incomplete or inaccurate information may delay the processing of your claim.
  3. Verification: Our customer support team will review the provided information to verify the DOA claim. Once the claim is validated, we will proceed with the appropriate compensation.
  4. Compensation Options: In the event of a DOA, we offer two compensation options: a) Store Credit: You will receive a store credit equal to the value of the deceased fish, which can be used for future purchases. b) Refund: We can issue a refund for the value of the deceased fish, processed through the original payment method used for the purchase.
  5. Shipping Costs: Please note that shipping costs are non-refundable unless the entire order is considered a DOA.
  6. Conditions Apply: Our DOA policy covers only fish that are dead upon arrival. It does not apply to fish that perish after successful delivery and acclimation to their new environment.

We are committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers and ensuring the well-being of our live fish. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our DOA policy, don't hesitate to get in touch with our customer support team at [email protected] , and we will be glad to assist you.



Note: The terms and conditions outlined in this DOA policy are subject to change without prior notice. We recommend reviewing the most up-to-date policy on our website or contacting our customer support team for any updates.
