Deep Blue Bolt Shrimp

Deep Blue Bolt - Taiwan Bee

You will receive one blue Taiwan bees from our high grade blue bolt tank. Every shrimp has a deep blue color, making them stand out in any aquarium. We sell all Taiwan Bee shrimp at about half an inch. The smaller they are, the easier it is to acclimate them to a new aquarium. The shrimp will reach breeding age within a month of receiving them.  

Blue Bolts are some of the most stunning aquarium shrimp in the hobby. Blue Bolts will range from white to solid blue in coloration. The blue bolts that we sell all have great coloration and are deep blue. Taiwan Bees were considered some of the hardest to keep and breed pet shrimp in the past. Between 2009 and 2014, hobbyists were able to stabilize the Taiwan bee shrimp line to have more stability. By adding in new genetic pools, the Taiwan bee shrimp is much easier to keep and breed in current days. For a hobbyist ready to take their hobby to the next level, these shrimp are a great place to start.

Mixing Taiwan Bees

It is great to be aware of the fact that all Taiwan Bee shrimp can be kept in the same tank with out risk of hybridizing. All Taiwan Bee shrimp share similar genetic lines so they will produce shrimp that look similar to the parents. Red King Kongs, Red Pandas, Black King King Kongs, Black Pandas and Blue Bolts can all be kept in the same aquarium.

Amazing quality deep blue bolts

Everyone arrived alive and even got an extra Incase of DOA. Beautiful deep blue colors on all of them!

Extremely beautiful blues!

I live in Alaska where it's very difficult to get quality and diverse shrimp. Tyler and Rob worked closely with me to ship what I wanted during an open window of clear weather, and everybody arrived healthy and happy! The shrimp are richly blue and beyond my wildest expectations -- can't wait for them to start breeding and making my own little colony of deep blue bolts!

Healthy shrimp

These are the healthiest shrimp I’ve ever ordered. They’ve adjusted right away and are very active right out of the bags. Deep blue color is true to photos online.

Perfect little Blue Bolts

I ordered 3 blue bolts and they arrived quickly, well packaged and all in good health. They acclimated well to my tank and add a great splash of color. This was my 3 rd order of shrimp from Flip and all 3 orders have been great. I will continue to make Flip Aquatics my go to place for great quality shrimp. Thanks Flip for doing such a great job!
