overview
The Bee Shrimp is an attractive variety of the extremely popular Red Crystal Shrimp. This ornamental shrimp boasts a sophisticated black and white color pattern that is a marked departure from its vibrant red cousin. While their coloration may seem like day and night, the Bee Shrimp is the "original" or natural color form and the Red Crystal Shrimp, a red color mutation. The elegant mottling of black and white coloration is subtle yet immediately distinguishes the Bee Shrimp as a striking addition to an ornamental shrimp setup or a peaceful freshwater system.

Native to the swamps and streams of Japan and Asia, the Bee Shrimp requires an established freshwater aquarium of at least 10 gallons. The Bee Shrimp needs plenty of hiding places, sufficient amounts of algae on which to feed and a mature substrate. The Bee Shrimp may be housed with small peaceful fish. However, the Bee Shrimp is easier to care for and best observed when housed in its very own aquarium. The Bee Shrimp prefers soft water that is slightly acid.

Under ideal conditions the Bee Shrimp will most likely breed in your aquarium if there is a male and female. The female Bee Shrimp will carry the eggs under her tail until they hatch in about 30 days. The newly born shrimp will look like miniature adult shrimp and will eat the same thing as the adults. If breeding these shrimp, it is important to keep them in a breeder aquarium with a sponge filter. This added precaution helps maximize survival of young shrimp.

Like all invertebrates, the Bee Shrimp is sensitive to copper. Copper-based medications should never be used in aquariums housing ornamental invertebrates. Do not house the Bee Shrimp in aquariums with loaches, puffers, and other larger carnivores that will feed on invertebrates

The Bee Shrimp is an omnivore that consumes algae, detritus and left over food. If insufficient food is present, supplement with a quality flake food or shrimp pellets.
