When the White Spot Bee Shrimp appeared about 10 years ago for the first time in larger numbers in the ornamental fish trade we all where really enthusiastic about them. Sadly we had to learn that the tiny animals are very sensitive against temporary distress, for example low temperatures during transportation, and die very quickly if their needs are not fulfilled in a perfect way. So the initial enthusiasm changed into disillusion and the shrimps became animals thought to be suited for specialists only.
Now we have German bred ones in stock. The breeder says that these shrimps are not difficult to keep at all. Of course even for these bred ones the water temperature should not fall below 25°C for longer times, the best temperature to keep and breed them is 27-30°C. We are very curious how hardy these shrimps will proof to be in a long time sight!
For our customers: the shrimps have code 481581 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
