    Question King Kong Quality

    Stupid question:

    When someone has a KK for sale, is the quality expected to be really spot on?

    I ask as I've never seen a pic of a low quality one, like one with poor black semi transparent, patchy etc.......

    Are they just "king kong" or not.

    Same question goes for other Taiwan Bees: blue bolts, pandas etc....

    So when your F1s breed a KK is it always a KK or could it just look rubbish?

    (Just interested as I might by a couple next year)

    Might not be helpful.
    But I've noticed from my KK that 2 have a blueish tint to them and the other 2 are solid black.

    Just to add.
    All black kk are higher grade if you would call it that.

    BKK are all solid black, they black isn't faded in any, and the white doesn't fade either. It's just solid. Now BKK will become transparent when stressed or initially after a molt, but the color will go back within a day. Just don't stress them and they'll look beautiful! Quite an amazing shrimp

    Interesting I've noticed some of my older pandas and king kongs have a brownish tint too, but only around the head area and you only see it if shining bright light on them.
