  • The Blue Bolt Shrimp (Caridina cantonensis var. 'Blue Bolt') is a captivating addition to any aquarium, celebrated for its stunning blue coloration and unique patterns. Originating from the freshwater streams of Asia, these shrimps are prized for their vibrant hues and peaceful nature. Let's explore the key aspects of caring for Blue Bolt Shrimps and witness the beauty they bring to your aquatic world.


  • Blue Bolt Shrimps exhibit a vibrant blue coloration with intricate patterns, ranging from solid shades to variations with stripes or spots.
  • Their small size and graceful movements make them a charming and eye-catching addition to planted aquariums.

Water Conditions:

  • Temperature: Maintain a stable temperature between 72°F to 78°F (22°C to 26°C) to ensure the well-being of Blue Bolt Shrimps.
  • pH Levels: Aim for slightly acidic to neutral water conditions, ideally between 6.0 to 7.5.
  • Water Hardness: Keep water hardness in the soft to medium range, around 5 to 12 dGH, replicating their native habitats.

Tank Size and Setup:

  • Blue Bolt Shrimps thrive in planted tanks of at least 5 gallons, providing ample hiding spots among live plants.
  • A substrate of fine gravel or sand is ideal, and the tank should have stable water parameters to support their delicate nature.

Tank Mates:

  • Blue Bolt Shrimps are peaceful and best kept in a dedicated shrimp tank.
  • Suitable tank mates include other peaceful dwarf shrimp varieties. Avoid keeping them with larger, more aggressive species to ensure their safety.

Feeding Habits:

  • Blue Bolt Shrimps are omnivores, primarily feeding on algae, biofilm, and leftover food particles in the aquarium.
  • Supplement their diet with high-quality shrimp pellets, algae wafers, and occasional treats like blanched vegetables or powdered spirulina.

Breeding Behavior:

  • Blue Bolt Shrimps readily breed in captivity, with females carrying eggs beneath their bodies.
  • Provide moss or other suitable hiding spots for the offspring to ensure their survival. Separating the pregnant females to a dedicated breeding tank may enhance fry survival rates.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Regular water changes are crucial to maintain water quality, and consistent monitoring of parameters with reliable test kits is recommended.
  • Blue Bolt Shrimps are sensitive to water fluctuations, so avoid sudden changes in temperature or water chemistry.
  • Ensure a well-established, cycled aquarium to provide a stable environment for their optimal health.
