Crystal Black Shrimp
The crystal black shrimp is the black and white cousin of the crystal red shrimp. Crystal shrimp have a white background as opposed to rili shrimp which have a clear background. The white color makes for a stronger contrast but crystal shrimp are a little more difficult to breed than rili shrimp so the price is a bit higher.
