HI Guys,
I was reading the "secing crystal red shrimp" article.
What is the carapace?
Also at what age can you begin to sex them?

I Saw a LFS selling CRS for 19.88 each...
What you guys think of the price?

Carapace refers to the head.

It is not easily to sex them when young, at about 3 or more months will be less difficult.

At about how big will they be at 3 months of age?

I have bought 5 cherry shrimps, 3 of them I think they are males because they are clear, and two of them they are red, they should be females.

They are around 2,5 cms.

Other than the differences mentioned in the article, are there differences say in the colour intensity between males and females?

Hi,
there are no noticeable differences of the color intensity, which occur in all CRS strains.
