The Blue Bolt shr imp belongs as a color variant of the Taiwan shrimp or Shadow shrimp to a currently very sought-after breeding form. The Blue Bolt Shrimp has a white cover color, in which the deep blue body color shimmers through with varying intensity. Often the head and breastplate, the carapace, is more densely colored and thus appears almost completely white, while the abdomen is more blue, sometimes the animals are more evenly colored. The Blue Bolt appeared relatively early in the Taiwan shrimp. One theory says that the Shadow shrimp originated from a mutation, another one assumes a possible crossbreeding with Tiger shrimp.
At 2.5 cm, the females remain relatively small, while the males only grow to about 2 cm. They are also slightly smaller and slimmer than the females, which appear a bit plumper with their belly pouches extended downward.
The Blue Bolt shrimp likes oxygen-rich, rather cool and very clean water. They cannot usually be kept in tap water and certainly cannot be propagated. As for all Taiwan shrimp, it is recommended for Blue Bolt shrimp to use osmosis water or demineralized water(deionized water) remineralized with special hardening salt. The rather sensitive Blue Bolt shrimp should also be kept on an active soil that stabilizes the water values in an optimal range for them. A water change of 10 to 30% per week has proven to be beneficial.
The Blue Bolt Shrimp does not need heating, but may need cooling, especially in the summer, as temperatures in the aquarium should not permanently exceed 25 °C. Higher temperatures can cause oxygen depletion and higher bacterial growth - both of which are extremely detrimental to Taiwan shrimp.
If the keeping conditions are right, the Blue Bolt shrimp is not that difficult to breed. After three to four weeks the female releases 20 to 40 young from the eggs she carried attached under her abdomen during this gestation period. Like all Shadow shrimp, Blue Bolt shrimp juveniles are relatively small and very sedentary. Feeding sparingly but regularly with dust food has proven successful for rearing, as this allows the food particles to land anywhere in the aquarium and be found quickly.
Blue Bolt shrimp are omnivores and will gladly take all kinds of food. We recommend in any case rather vegetable food and twice a week a suitable protein food. Blue Bolt shrimp like to graze on brown autumn leaves , which can be left in the aquarium as permanent food. It does not affect the water values negatively.
As group animals Blue Bolt shrimp are quite peaceful. They can be well socialized with other shrimps - mainly bee shrimps. Possibly different requirements to the water values must be absolutely considered! Since the Blue Bolt Shrimp does not reproduce as strongly as other species and is quite sensitive, you should treat it to a pure shrimp tank in any case. The socialization with peaceful snails can work. Under no circumstances should they be kept together with fish, crabs, freshwater crabs, predatory snails and mussels .
Our food recommendation: NatureHolic's soft mainfeed softpads are designed for daily feeding. They contain all the nutrients shrimp need for shell development, egg formation and growth. During the production we pay attention to a gentle and environmentally friendly production, in which the vitamins and other valuable ingredients are preserved as far as possible.
Our plant recommendation: Use for the planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planaria and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.
Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.
