Hoping they settle in

I’ve bought a wide variety from Flip over the past few months. These were my first Caridina purchase. Received 12 blue bolts and 2 deep blues. 1 blue bolt was on its way out when they arrived. Lost 2 the first evening and another the second evening... that I can tell Running 71-72°, Fluval shrimp Stratum @ 6.4pH, GH 5, KH 0, TDS 115, 40gal breeder with Malaysian Trumpet Snails, Malaysian driftwood, almond leaves, alder cones, Java moss, a few crypts, some water sprite, dragon stone and a Matten filter.

Hopefully tomorrow morning there are no losses. A few of the blue bolts have amazing bright white with a deep blue head. Both deep blues are still alive, they are pretty small but appear to have great color.

Hey Chris, Please let us know if you lose more. We are here to help! Sorry for the deaths. We will work with you to make sure you have a good start to colony. Thank you for trusting in us a your preferred one stop shop for shrimp! Rob

Blue Bolt Starter Pack

I love the Blue Bolts. The packaging was excellent as always. There were two dead in the bag, but I had received three extras. I lost another one the next morning and two more the following morning. Not sure if it’s a weaker strain or something I’ve done, but I hadn’t lost any in months so I thought my tank had stabilized. I hope that’s the end of my losses, but it’s a little hard to tell as my tank is very heavily planted and I may not see them right away. Crossing my fingers. I was trying to add to my numbers to see if it would help with breeding. So far I’ve never had a berried female.

Great Quality

Deep blues came in with very good coloration. The other Blue bolts where very well colored, all with full blue heads and mostly blue bodies. Higher grade than most blue bolts Ive seen on the market even for the regular grades. Will buy from Rob and the gang again. Keep up the good work and best of luck with the new space!

Amazing quality!

All of my Blue Bolts arrives safe! All are healthy and happy! The older was packed perfectly, and arrived earlier than expected! If I ever order more shrimp it will be from Flip Aquatics!
