The Panda Shrimp has been selectively bred from the Taiwan Bee Shrimp. Its colors are black and white, although the black sometimes has blue undertones. It is a mutation of the Taiwan Bee Shrimp. As this is a highly selectively bred shrimp they can be a little harder to get a hold of and at times difficult to breed. Most hobbyists don’t recommend them to the newcomer because of their sensitivity and increased price. It is recommended to keep these shrimp in tanks no smaller than 25 gallons. Keeping all water parameters stable is very important and a larger amount of water provides a better buffer to changes than a lesser amount of water. The water must be kept extremely clean. For that reason, filtration is a must as is frequent, 25% water changes weekly. There is quite a bit of controversy in temperature and pH. The given parameters are a guide but not absolutes and for this reason it is highly recommended you ask the breeder you’re getting your shrimp from what water parameters they are currently given.They are particular regarding their food but by general consensus, pieces of blanched spinach are accepted very well. Fish food that is of a high vegetarian quality makes up for a little variety which is recommended. The shrimp will eat fish food flakes as well as pellets in addition to grazing off of some algae in the tank. Panda Shrimp are not prolific breeders. There is a level of difficulty in breeding these shrimp that probably needs someone with some experience with selective bred shrimp. The body of the female is usually a little larger than that of the male. It also has a more rounded belly than the male Panda Shrimp. Another way to identify a female is by the presence of a saddle. This is only possible after the female reaches maturity because the saddle contains the ovaries. After she mates with the male, her eggs will travel to the holding place of the sperm and become fertilized. She is then berried. After a gestation of between 3 – 4 weeks, babies are hatched. They are very non-aggressive shrimp who have no problem with sharing their habitat. Swimming around quite actively, they are a joy to watch. To keep the species as they are and prevent cross-breeding with other species, separate tanks would be in order. Separate aquariums will also keep any possible babies safe from being eaten by other species. Copper is the enemy of all shrimp. Keep all things copper away from shrimp as well as tank for them to remain healthy. Many medications carry copper in the ingredients so make sure to keep an eye out for this as well.
