The Red Bolt Shrimp is a color form of the Taiwan Shrimp, also called Shadow Shrimp. Their white top color allows the orange-red to dark yellow body color to shine through, giving them a beautiful golden hue. A red spot shines through on the side of the head and breastplate of many animals. The Red Bolt shrimp is therefore also known as Bleeding Heart shrimp. From not well colored Snow White or Golden Bee shrimp the Red Bolt can be distinguished by its tail fan. This always shows red areas. Shadow shrimp possibly originated by deliberate crossbreeding of tiger shrimp into bee shrimp strains. However, there is also a theory that the shadow shrimp came into being by mutation.
The shrimp grow to only 2.5-3 cm in size, with males also often reaching only 2 cm in body size. The females of the Red Bolt shrimp are characterized by a somewhat plumper build, while the males remain quite slender.
The Red Bolt Shrimp prefers its water cool, oxygen-rich and very clean. It should only be kept in tap water if it has an almost undetectable carbonate hardness. If this cannot be guaranteed, it should be kept in osmosis or demineralized water treated with a special mineral salt(bee salt). For the relatively sensitive Red Bolt Shrimp, we also recommend the use of an active soil, which adjusts the water values to optimal values. Per week approx. 10 to 30% of the water should be changed. Vacuum the substrate from time to time!
A heater is usually not necessary in an aquarium for Red Bolt shrimp, but rather a cooler. Permanent temperatures should not exceed 25 °C even in summer. Feeding should be sparing - too many nutrients in the aquarium will drive up the germ count in the open water, which the Red Bolt Shrimp does not tolerate well at all.
Red Bolt shrimp are not very picky omnivores, they will gladly take all kinds of food. In any case, the diet should be predominantly vegetable and include a suitable protein food twice a week. Red Bolt shrimp are very fond of eating the biofilms of brown autumn leaves and later the leaves themselves. Since it does not negatively affect water values, it can remain in the aquarium until it has been eaten.
If external conditions are suitable, the Red Bolt shrimp will reproduce willingly . The females lay 20 to 40 eggs, which they carry under their abdomens for three to four weeks. Once the young shrimp are hatched, they are immediately independent. Basically, Shadow shrimp babies are quite small and grow slowly. Because of their high site fidelity, they need dust foodsparingly at first, but regularly, and it will disperse well in the water and get everywhere in the aquarium.
Red Bolt shrimp, like most dwarf shrimp, are peaceful group animals, and you can socialize them nicely with other shrimp - however, water quality requirements should definitely be considered!
Because the Red Bolt shrimp reproduces less quickly than other shrimp, and due to their high sensitivity, they feel most comfortable in a species tank. They can be kept together with peaceful snails .

Meine 5 Red Bolt Garnelen sind gut angekommen. Ich kann nur mitteilen dass sie gesund und munter sind.Zu der Farbe kann ich noch nichts sagen weil sie momentan noch weiß sind.
Der Ablauf der Bestellung, der Benachrichtigung der Verschickung und die Ankunft lief super.Die Tiere sind sehr agil und ich freue mich darauf wenn sie soweit sind wie die Blue Bolt dass sie ihre Farbe zeigen. Alles bestens. I.Meyer
