  • Product Description

    Shadow Panda shrimp are black panda shrimp with blue hue, the blue color will get deeper as the shrimp matures. They are selective bred from black panda and blue bolt shrimp, they can be kept with other types of Taiwan Bee without worrying about hybridizing. 

    Shadow 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 Shadow 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. So in love

      got my shrimp (shadow panda) safely and securely packed! In love with the colors and also expected a smaller size from previous reviews, not that it's huge, but I'm excited to watch it grow. It came with little drip acclimation instructions which saved me a Google search because I'm new to this stuff, so that was convenient. Am definitely returning to buy more if I can keep this one alive for a while, the service was great and SOSHRIMP really seems to take good care of their animals. on 16th Jul 2020

    2. All is Good

      I got my Shadow Pandas quickly and in great shape. I ordered 5 and got 6. They are young so made acclimation a breeze. They have been in my tank for two days now and all seem to be doing fine. on 12th Jun 2020

    3. Girlfriend loves these

      I do too! Should have ordered everything you had the first time lol on 14th Oct 2019

    4. beautiful shrimp again!

      My order of Shadow Pandas and Blue Bolts arrived in record time and all kicking to get out. The smaller size helps them all get used to my tanks. No complaints, great quality. No losses. Thanks again. on 15th Apr 2019

    5. Beautiful & Healthy So Far!

      I received my five shadow pandas about two weeks ago. I live in Pennsylvania and they took approximately two days to arrive at my house, all alive and in good shape. I slowly acclimated them to my aquarium (temp 74 F, pH 6, kH 1) over the course of about two hours. They have been eating a diet of Shrimp Cuisine by Hikari Tropical and growing slowly but steadily. I love them so far and can't wait for them to get to full adult size! on 18th Jul 2018

    6. Amazing shrimp, perfect packaging/shipping

      Absolutely beautiful healthy shrimp, well packaged. Highly recommended!! on 6th May 2018

    7. Wonderful Buy

      All shrimps arrived healthy and happy despite the cold and dreary weather. After three hours of acclimation I put them in their tank and all have survived since. Wonderfully colored, decently sized but small enough to adjust to new water parameters well. They came very well packaged. Overall great experience. Will order for here again in the future. on 9th Feb 2018

    8. Great seller

      Very good looking shrimp. By far one of the best sellers I have ordered from. All shrimp arrived healthy and good color. Will order from again. Thanks on 30th Sep 2017
