    Default Sample

    English name: Crystal White Bee Shrimp
    Scientific name: Caridina cf. cantonensis sp. "white bee"
    Origin: southern china
    Size male/female: 2.5 cm / 3 cm or 1 inch / 1,2 inch
    Water temperature: 15 - 26 C or 59 - 78 F
    Water Parameters: pH 6.5 - 7.5
    High or low breeding form: high
    Behaviour: non-agressive
    Difficulty: easy - medium
    Description:
    They have small white lines on their transparent body like normal bee shrimps.
    "Saddle" and eggs are blue /green.
    My experience on this species:
    Like other bee shrimps they need good water conditions, especially the offspring.
    I recommend cooler temperatures below 25C / 77 F and a PH around 7 and below.
    Remarks:
    Nothing special.

    1 thing is missing imo, its doesnt same if they prefer hard or soft water, maybe it doesnt matter but perhaps they do better at a certain point.
