Both alive and beautiful specimens

Very pleased with my purchase. These king kong shrimp are healthy and thriving. Will absolutely be purchasing more now that the test run has gone well. Our plants were also very healthy and are doing well so far.

King Kong has nothing on this shrimp!

I ordered a solo King Kong to get to $100 and free shipping. The specimen I received was huge and has a ton of personality. The smaller neos follow King Kong around and it is always front and center at meal time. I would get a whole colony of these if I had the space.

Great Shrimp.

Ordered two red king kongs/pandas, and two black king kongs/pandas, and all arrived alright. Used two day shipping, and all the shrimp were packaged very well. A week later, and all the shrimp are doing fine. They are very small, smaller than I guess I would have initially thought. But I have no complaints. Would definitely recommend.

Absolutely the BEST!

Received my order in a timely manner. All of the shrimp were alive and healthy. There is only one dealer to go to if you want to raise & breed these - Flip Aquatics!
