  • Product Description

    Black King Kong Panda shrimp or black panda have rich creamy black and white colors, they can be kept together with BKK in the same tank without worrying about hybridizing.

    Black King Kong Panda shrimp are a variety of Taiwan Bee shrimp, they are a mutation of crystal red, crystal black, and golden bee shrimp. Like all Caridina shrimp, black pandas prefer clean, soft acidic water with a pH of 6 - 6.8, and gH of 4 - 6, they require cool temperature between 68 and 78 degrees F.

    Aquarium must be fully cycled with a lot of biofilms and plants for them to graze on. Ammonia and nitrite should always be zero, nitrate under 25ppm. Weekly water change of 10-20% is suggested to keep the nitrate low. Feed only 2-3 times a week as overfeeding will cause shrimp death.

    Breeding black panda shrimp is the same as breeding crystal red shrimp. Female shrimp will carry the eggs for about 30 days until they are hatched to miniature size of their parents. It is important to have a well established aquarium in order for the shrimplets to survive as they can only consume biofilms until they grow older.

    1. Great Shrimp!

      Shipping 5/5
      Arrived quickly and were in great health upon arrival.
      Color 4/5
      Got an extra shrimp which is awesome! The only reason I am giving 4/5 is because 2 of the shrimp had a little blue on them like a shadow panda. Some people may appreciate this but I was really hoping for strictly black and white pandas. They are juvies though so I can understand the mistake!

      Overall 4.5/5
      Shipping was awesome but the color could use a little more culling.

    2. Got cheaper Shadow Pandas instead ..

      Took a while for me to make sure, but, yeah. Paid for king kong pandas, received shadow pandas. on 4th Aug 2020

    3. They were Beautiful but VERY YOUNG

      Ordered 5 of these, they all came alive and well. Only reason I gave a 4 star rating is because I was unaware of how young and tiny they were. Unfortunately, they became $50 of angel fish/dragon goby food and instantly. I should have put them in a "breed attachment" until they were bigger so bad thinking on my part. They were gorgeous though. on 3rd Aug 2020

    4. Very young but definitely recommend!

      I ordered one of these little guys, it arrived happy and healthy and munching on the plant inside of the bag. Very vivid color and active! I can’t wait to watch it grow! on 9th Jan 2020

    5. young but beautiful

      All shrimp came alive and doing well over a week later. Wish I can post pics of how beautiful they are. on 15th Sep 2019

    6. order was messed up, but good quality shrimp

      I ordered four of the Black King Kong panda shrimp, but received two panda shrimp and two shadow panda shrimp instead. None of them died and appear to be doing well. I only gave 4 stars because it wasn’t what I ordered, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. on 14th Jul 2019

    10. I'm back for more

      This is my 3rd order from SoShrimp. This is my first order of black KK pandas and they arrived in 2 days after the shipping notice when out. All were healthy and I received 1 extra as others have stated. They were perfectly colored and free of any disease/fungus that some retailers have. A couple even had a touch of blue in with the white which looks awesome!! Best shrimp retailer online in terms of price and quality. He also is very helpful with answering questions for customers new to the shrimp hobby. on 2nd Mar 2019
