BKK Shrimp - "Black King Kong Shrimp" (Caridina cantonensis var. "Black King Kong")

The BKK Shrimp, also known as the Black King Kong Shrimp or Black King Kong Bee Shrimp is one of the rarest shrimp in the hobby.  They fetch a much higher price compared to other freshwater dwarf shrimp.  The original pair sold some years back fetched $8,500 USD though this price has dropped significantly.  

Be sure that the water is below 80 F degrees and stays within a pH level of 6.0-6.8 and they will be fine.

Do note they are much more sensitive and their level of care if a bit more difficult compared to other shrimp.  Offspring success rates tend to be a bit lower for this shrimp though they can be bred with other Caridina shrimp such as CRS, CBS, TB, Gold CRS, etc.  

Size is about half an inch to just under an inch.
