Blue Bolt Shrimp

Product Description

Blue Bolt Shrimp

You will receive blue Taiwan bees from our regular grade blue bolt tank or blue Taiwan bees that will be mostly blue from our mid grade blue bolt tank. A regular grade blue bolt generally entails that the head of the shrimp will be mostly blue, with the remainder of the body and tail being mostly white with some light blue coloration. The opposite is true for our mostly blue blue bolts. This contrasting blue and white color make them a great addition to any aquarium especially those with plants. The blue bolts will be sold at approximately half an inch in size. The smaller the shrimp are the easier they are to acclimate to your aquarium. The shrimp should be breeding size within about a month after receiving them.


The blue bolts that we sell all have great coloration and have varying levels of blue and white. In the past, Taiwan Bees were considered some of the hardest to keep and breed pet shrimp. Between 2009 and 2014, hobbyists stabilized the Taiwan bee shrimp line giving it more stability in the aquarium. This was achieved by adding in new genetic pools making the Taiwan bee shrimp much easier to keep and breed. For a hobbyist ready to take their hobby to the next level, these shrimp are a great place to start.

Perfect in every way!

I ordered 10 blue bolts and they were shipped fast. When I received them, they were all alive and they gave me 11! One was super tiny, so I am guessing why I had an extra.

3 weeks later, I just fed them some KingKong snacks, and I counted all 11! They are growing like weeds and now I’m waiting for some babies. Highly recommend. They are beautiful.

Fabulous !

I ordered 5 mostly blue and received 1 bonus shrimp. They were exceptionally well packaged by Amanda and are the 6 cutest little shrimplets ! I’m so excited to see these bright little gems grow and develop. All six arrived promptly and alive and after a drip acclimation are adjusting to their new home.

Blue bolt shrimp

Very satisfied with my order. Came very fast after being shipped and the packing was perfect. I ordered 10 blue bolts and got 11, all were in good condition and seem to be doing well in my tank. The shrimps are small, but that’s okay because now I get to watch them grow. I also ordered spider wood, almond leaves and some substrate witch also were in great condition. The Swedish fish was also a nice touch. Thank you flip aquatics. I will be ordering again soon.

Great shrimp and amazing packaging

I've received live animals in the mail a few times before and these were by far the most thoughtfully packaged animals I've ever received. The blue bolts all came in healthy and alive with a few extras as well. I couldn't be happier with my experience.

Great shrimps!

I am really excited about this purchase. I ordered rkk panda mix, bkk panda mix and blue bolt. They all came alive. They send me 3 extras. The shrimp are beautiful and healthy. The Shrimp came in Super nice and acclimation went smooth. This is my first Taiwan bee set up with these shrimp. Can’t believe how great they look and arrived on time! Very impressed by the quality of these shrimp and customer service. First order with flip. Now I want to know what other kinds of shrimps I can add to these ones without losing colors. Thank you Flip Aquatics
