Beautiful red and white color variant of the Bee shrimp ...

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 Red Bee shrimp is red, interrupted by white horizontal bands. In K8 shrimp, the red band on the abdomen is reduced to a mere spot or circle ... they are also called Hinomaru (rising sun) shrimp. If this spot is divided by a white line, it is called a No Entry Sign. The tail fan of this color variant of the Red Bee shrimp is usually red and white or all white.

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.

Schon nach einem Tag kamen die Nelchen munter an. Kleine agile Kerlchen, hoffe es gibt irgendwann mal Nachwuchs. Alles bestens.

Die Tiere kamen sehr schnell an, alle topfit und sehr schön.
Die Verpackung war auch super. Styroporbox, doppelt getütet mit Alubeschichtung und ein kleines Plastikgitter damit die Garnelen sich festhalten können.

Die kleinen kamen Wohlverpackt an und waren auch trotz der kalten Temperaturen draußen sehr aktiv in Ihrem Beutel - mittlerweile sind sie im Eimer und werden langsam an das Wasser gewöhnt und auch hier sind sie schon absolut klasse gefärbt!
