The eye-catching Blue Bolt Caridina Shrimp (scientific name: Caridina cf cantonensis var. 'Blue bolt') is believed to be the result of selective cross-breeding among golden bee shrimp, crystal black/red shrimp and snow whites. The freshwater shrimp has a blue and white coloration distributed all over its body subject to different specimens originally found in Taiwan. 

Blue Bolt Shrimp, like other Caridina species, are relatively challenging to care for beginners, not like neocaridina. They are sensitive to water changes and are not recommended for newly cycled tanks and stable water parameters. The shrimp require soft and slightly acidic water conditions and freshwater aquarium substrate in a cooler range of temperature to thrive. Shrimp Tank's water is absolutely a must and ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels should be kept within limits. More importantly, no copper is allowed to be found in the aquarium as it is considered deadly to them. 

Blue Bolt Caridina Shrimp appreciates live aquarium plants. Blue Bolts feel comfortable and secure when surrounded by java moss, buce plant, or anubias as they provide a surface area for food. High-quality food is recommended, but you can feed them with zucchini vegetables, and Indian almond leaves. Putting some decorations such as rock caves or driftwood into the tank will benefit them a lot. As this provides hiding places that are necessary for them on most occasions, especially when they are in molting and breeding periods or feel threatened. These freshwater shrimp females carry eggs and hatch the baby shrimp. 

Blue Bolt Shrimp should be kept in groups. Ideally, a colony of 6 to 12 specimens is highly recommended. They like to gather with each other and stay relaxed when in large groups. Peaceful and non-territorial as they are, Blue Bolt Shrimp are great invertebrates, inhabitants of any tankmates fish as long as it contains the species sharing similar temperaments. However, many experienced aquarists recommend the shrimp-only tank be better considering its dwarf size and low defensive capability.
