The packaging is fantastic and the shrimps all arrived alive. They are juveniles so they are small in size, but they are hardy. Will definitely order from SOSHRIMP again. Gwen on 11th Jun 2018
These shrimps were great because they are not full adults yet. so they seem to do better than older ones. They color up nicely after 24 hours in the aquarium. Great buy and recommend. Unknown on 23rd May 2018
shipping is fast, shrimps are healthy and very bright color. Shrimps size little bit small but reason able for the prices. I just order more and waiting for shipping. Unknown on 14th Apr 2018
Bought a few shrimp from SoShrimp. There Red Crystals are my favorite. The colors are great and there size is perfect. James Glen Roche on 14th Feb 2018

I am so happy with this order. The shrimp are very big michlings. Their whites really pop! I had no loses and they are growing quickly. AndrewC on 20th Jan 2018
I dont know what metrics system they are using but the shrimp i received were tiny and you could barely see them.
i have a shrimp tank with blue velvet shrimp and bloody mary shrimp- all doing fine.
i bought 10 of these and now i'm down to one. Pamela on 13th Oct 2017
Wonderful experience. Arrived early with Java moss. Adapted to my colony quick. izk on 11th May 2017
The CRS arrived alive, and healthy. I put them in a separate jar with lots of moss and plants. I will grow them up a bit before introducing them to the aquarium. This lesson was learned from my first batch of CRS. The price, the product and the service has all been excellent. Spike Cover on 9th Apr 2017
The shrimp arrived alive and in apparent very good condition. I ordered 10 and 11 were sent. All seemed healthy. I put them in my heavily planted tank and they promptly vanished. I suspect they were too small and the resident (Amano) shrimp just ate them. That said, I don't really know. If the shrimp had been bigger, they seemed to be about 3/8" long, I suspect they would have had a better chance to survive. Who knows? In a month or so, I may find one or two have been well hidden and actually survived.
Bottom line: good healthy shrimp, well packed and delivered in very good shape. Just too small for my situation. I would definitely order again but do things differently on my end. Spike Cover on 9th Mar 2017
