Bee Shrimp are directly related to the notorious Crystal Black and Crystal Red Shrimp. They usually have a striking white and black or white and brown coloration; their colors and patterns tend to vary more than CBS and CRS. However, these also stand out magnificently against any backdrop or substrate and are generally easier to care for and breed, due to their lower sensitivity to aquarium conditions. Thus, these are better suited for beginners who are newly entering the dwarf shrimp hobby.

This pack comes with 5 Bee Shrimp (although I usually ship an extra), plus some free strands of java moss - a low-light plant that thrives in almost any aquarium and improves water quality. We generally send young adult shrimp that range from 1/2 to 1 inch in length.

- PH level range: 6.2 to 6.8
- Temperature range: 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Soft
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Green Babaulti shrimp, Blue Velvet shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish.
- Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - similar to other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, willow hygro, green cabomba, etc.). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
