Black Tiger Shrimp are reported to be very difficult to breed and even keep alive. Experienced breeders have managed to breed enough of this species to sell. Their rarity fetches a very high price depending on their grade as well as eye color. Due to inbreeding it is very important that it is given its particular water requirements. Poor genetics make this species very fragile. This shrimp meant for experienced hobbyists.
Black tigers are very rare in the hobby, we are just now getting our numbers up so we can start releasing these very high demand shrimp. Our black tigers are considered VERY high grade!
The Black Tiger Shrimp is selectively bred from the normal Tiger Shrimp. The original Tiger Shrimp were bred for broader black stripes and after many generations the black stripes began to fill the entire body.
Our Black tigers have the royal blue blood lines and display very beautiful blue hues, and have stunning black eyes. These shrimp breed true (all the babies should basically look like their parents).
