GarnelenhausCrystal Red / Red Bee - K2

These K2 shrimp are culls from a K4 strain, and with a good genetic potential for beautiful red and white offspring.

The red color morph of the Bee shrimp from South China can grow to a maximal body length of 3 cm and reach an age of around 2 years. The males stay slightly smaller than the females and do not get as plump.

The body color of the K2 Red Bee shrimp is red, interrupted by white and transparent parts, usually in the form of more or less pronounced horizontal bands. The tail fan is usually red or transparent with some white dots. These shrimp come from a K4 strain.

The Crystal Red / Red Bee, like most freshwater shrimp, is an omnivore and will eat just about any food. The species is very peaceful, other aquarium inhabitants have nothing to fear from them. You can easily keep them together with fish that do not predate on shrimp.

Red Bee shrimp do not have any special requirements regarding the aquarium decoration ... here you can use your imagination freely. The shrimp are happy with a little moss and driftwood ... and if there are some hiding-places like tubes or brown autumn leaves (oak or beech) in the tank, your Crystal Red shrimp will have everything they need.

When Red Bee shrimp have adapted to their environment and when they are happy, the females will relase up to 30 fully developed shrimplets every 5 to 6 weeks. They have the red and white pattern from the first few days on. In well-planted tanks with lots of places to hide, some of the young shrimp will even grow up in the presence of fish.
Our practical experience is that this number of surviving shrimp offspring is only realistic under the most optimal conditions. Usually, the shrimp will get berried every two to three months or so, and not all offspring will reach adulthood. Overpopulated Bee shrimp tanks are thus not really a problem.


Our tip for keeping Red Bees!
Red Bee shrimp feel the happiest when the pH is between 6 and 7, a total hardness of 5 - 6° dGH (German hardness) and a carbonate hardness of 0 - 1° dKH (German hardness). The temperature should be between 20 and 23° C ... varied food (predominantly of vegetable origin, and frozen food fed sparingly) contributes to heathly, vital, happy shrimp.

Super schöne Tiere! Farbpracht echt Gut. Versand war erstklassig und selbst die Wärme in der Box war nach der Lieferung noch da! Tiere fühlen sich direkt Wohl und Fressen. Wie erwartet ist die Farbe der Hammer. Danke an das Garnelenhaus für diese schönen Tiere.

Die Tiere kamen hier recht kalt an, wegen der Witterung und der Wärmeakku war auch eiskalt. Aber nach einer sehr langsamen Anpassung sind alle Tiere auch nach einigen Tagen wohl auf und topfit.

Sehr schöne Tiere, kräftige und schön gefärbt, die nach dem Transport und Wassergewöhnung fleißig im Aquarium herumwuseln.

Sehr agile und gesunde Tiere!

Nach einer 2,5 stündigen Eingewöhnung im Eimer haben die 15 bestellten K2´s nach dem Einsetzen sofort angefangen alles im Becken abzuweiden.
Die Anfangs sehr blassen Tiere hatten nach etwa 30 Minuten bereits sehr satte und strahlende Farben.
Mit den Amano´s im Becken vertragen sie sich sehr gut und sind sogar richtig frech gegenüber den Großen.
Alle Tiere inklusive dem Baby kamen lebend bei mir an.

Ich bin sehr zufrieden und werde wieder bestellen!

Super lebendige und gesunde Tiere.
Ich habe mir vor längerem schon einige dieser Garnelen gekauft. Bei meinen Nachzuchten waren alle Jungen K4 und höher, bis jetzt sind keine weiteren Junggarnelen des Typ´s K2 aufgekommen. Es wurden von mir keine anderen Typen unter gemischt, die K2 waren alleine in einem Becken.
