Shadow Panda / King Kong Shrimp

Product Description

Please Note: These Shrimp are going through our 30 Day Holding Period. If purchased, they will ship between June 28th and the 30th.

Shadow Panda / King Kong Mix

You will receive Shadow Panda or Shadow King Kong shrimp. These shrimp will be shipped at about a half an inch. The smaller they are shipped the easier it is to acclimate them to a new aquarium. The shrimp will reach breeding age if not already within 1-2 months of receiving them.

The term "shadow" references the noticeably blue hue compared to the normal white in black panda/king kong shrimp. This blue can be selectively bred for when keeping blue bolts and black panda/king kongs in the same aquarium. The blue in these shrimp usually become more vivid with age!

Shadow Panda and King Kong 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.

Shadow Pandas are Beautiful!

Thank you so much for the beautiful shadow panda shrimp! I recently ordered from Flip Aquatics for the first time: 5 shadow panda shrimp, 5 red panda / king kong, and some shrimp food. Shadow panda are one of my favorite caridinas. You should add a picture to your product page for this shrimp. A panda shrimp with the shadow gene similar to blue bolts is gorgeous!
