Red King Kong Extreme

Red King Kong Extreme - Taiwan Bee

You will receive red king kong extreme Taiwan bee. The red king kong you receive will have very little white color. Most of our red king kong extremes only have white on the tail. 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.  

Red King Kong shrimp are a type of Taiwan bee. They are from the genus Caridina and tend to be more difficult to keep compared to cherry shrimp or other aquarium shrimp. 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 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 Kongs, Black Pandas and Blue Bolts can all be kept in the same aquarium.

Amazing shrimp

Not only did I order the red, I ordered blue's and yellows. My wife had ordered some from another supplier before we found you guys. All but 3 of her shrimp died within 2 days. Your shrimp are 1000% better quality. They came in, we were blown away by how vivid the color is, they were all moving and healthy. They are all doing amazing in the tank. One even came in with babies! I can't thank you enough for the quality you provide to your customers! It made my wife extremely happy to get them. We will be doing business in the future! Keep up the amazing work!

Prettiest Shrimp Ever!!!!

After a few orders from Flip Aquatics I have been very pleased with the coloration of the shrimp , but these guys are the best. They are STUNNING!!! The deep red coloration is better than my Bloody Mary's. They arrived safe and all survived. I can't wait to see how these guys grow up and produce babies. This is my best purchase so far. Thank you Flip Aquatics!

Rich, solid red in the King Kong Red Extremes

I love the rich, solid red in my extremes I received from Flip Aquatics. They were in great condition when my shipment arrived to my home.

My very first shrimp purchase

I'd like to thank the team at Flip Aquatics. This was my very first purchase of shrimp ever and surely not my last! The package was boxed up lovely. The shrimp colored up vividly short after I started to drip acclimate. I HIGHLY recommend getting your shrip from Flip Aquatics and nowhere else. Keep it up ya'll
