Blue Bolt Shrimp
Blue bolt shrimp are some of the most beautiful aquarium shrimp in the hobby. They are characterized by a brilliant blue carapace that gradually turns into a white body. The coloration of the carapace can range from intense deep blue to light sky color with varying translucency.
Although Blue bolt shrimp do not have a complex system of gradation. It still exists. Generally speaking, the more blue coverage with the better opacity the higher is the grade, and the bigger the price tag for the shrimp. Therefore, if you see a solid blue color, it is a high-grade shrimp in the color aspect. These shrimp may have white spotting, especially on the tail. So, in addition, the smoother the color transition, the better.
Breeding Blue Bolt Shrimp is the same as breeding other crystal shrimp. Female shrimp will carry the eggs for about 30 days until they are hatched to miniature size of their parents. It is important to have a well-established aquarium in order for the shrimplets to survive as they can only consume biofilms until they grow older.
Like all dwarf shrimp, Blue bolt shrimp usually grow up to 2 – 3 cm (~1 inch).
Once a proper aquarium is set up and optimum living conditions are met, Blue bolt shrimp can reproduce and live up to 1.5 – 2 years.
