  • Product Description

    Blue Bolt 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, blue bolts 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 blue bolt shrimp is the same as breeding other crystal 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.

    3. Very nice blue bolts

      For the price these are very nice blue bolts with good coloration blue and solid non opaque white. Shrimp received were nice sized yet still juveniles which is perfect as it allows them to survive the shipping, acclimation process, etc easier. The packaging was also great and showed that care was taken to ensure the shrimp didn't just arrive but arrived safely and weren't over stressed while in shipping. on 24th Jan 2018
