Blue Bolt Starter Pack

Blue Bolt Starter Pack

Food, Leaves and Net Not Included in this Pack

You will receive ten (10) Regular Grade Blue Bolts and two (2) Deep Blue Bolts. 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.  

Taiwan Bees were considered some of the hardest to keep and breed 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.

Blue bolts

This is the second time I've ordered a Blue bolt pack they both came in perfect condition and after weeks of having them, not a single lose! Still new at keeping carodina species but so far so much easier than neos for me!

Simply beautiful.

I've bought blue bolts before from another online retailer and they died pretty fast. I decided to try again through Flip Aquatics and I'm so glad I did. A few ended up not making it in my tank after about a week, but that's because my water parameters are a bit different (pH 7.0). The others are doing really well and growing! I've never seen blue bolts in person, any larger than babies so I'm excited at seeing the colors and watching them grow. Hopefully they'll be happy with to breed. I will definitely buy again from this shop.

Very healthy and good colors

This is my second week with the blue bolts. When they first came in, all the regular ones looked grayish white and the deep blues were faint colored. There was one DOA regular BB but there were extras to account for the loss. Other than one or two of them, they all have colored up really nicely.
