Red Wine Shrimp
Wine Red Shrimp or Red King Kong Shrimp, they have wine red color with one or two white stripes on the back. Wine Reds are a variety of Taiwan Bee shrimp, they are a mutation of crystal red, crystal black, and golden bee shrimp. Like all Caridina shrimp, Wine Reds prefer clean, soft acidic water.
Aquarium must be fully cycled with a lot of biofilms and plants for them to graze on. Ammonia and nitrite should always be zero, nitrate less than 25ppm. Weekly water change of 10-20% is suggested to keep the nitrate low. Feed only 2-3 times a week as overfeeding will cause shrimp death.
Breeding Red Wine Shrimp is the same as breeding crystal red 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.
Mixing Taiwan Bees
It is great to be aware of the fact that all Taiwan Bee shrimp can be kept in the same tank without risk of hybridizing. All Taiwan Bee shrimp share similar genetic lines so they will produce shrimp that look similar to the parents. Red King Kongs, Red Pandas, Black King Kongs, Black Pandas and Blue Bolts can all be kept in the same aquarium.
