Black King Kong / Panda Shrimp Mix

Black King Kong / Panda Shrimp Mix

You will receive black Taiwan bees from our Black King Kong and Panda mixed tank. For every order of five shrimp, you will receive one to two black king kong shrimp. 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. 

Our Black King Kong shrimp may come as the shadow variety. This means instead of being black and white, they will contain blue shadowing in their white coloration.

Black King Kong shrimp and Panda shrimp are black Taiwan bees. They are from the genus Caridina and tend to be more difficult to keep compared to cherry shrimp or others. Taiwan Bees were considered some of the hardest to keep and breed freshwater 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 pet 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. 

The following parameters are how we keep our Taiwan Bees:

I didn't realize King Kong are Pandas

They all came in health. This was one of my larger purchases and I'm still learning. Was hoping to get some pure line so I can try breeding and I'm still going to. I need to read the full instructions I guess. Would still purchases again sometime.

King Kong Panda and Blue Dream

They all arrived healthy and are living a week past delivery, they were small but that’s fine to me

Expectations met, AGAIN.

Guys. let’s get real, it’s winter and I was skeptical about 3day shipping. Also, I had a very specific request with this order. I asked the crew if they could pull Black and White Pandas ONLY for me as the mixed king kong/panda menu can leave you with a mixed bag. So I asked, and they delivered. Not one shrimp harmed in the shipping process and they all looked incredible. Can’t thank you guys enough for making it happen, AGAIN. Consistent results and fast customer service. What else do you want? A++
