Pure Black Line (PBL) Shrimp


Renowned for its intense coloration, the Pure Black Line Shrimp is a selectively bred variant of the Crystal Black Shrimp. Unlike some other variants, the PBL Shrimp is pure-bred, ensuring it never produces golden bee offsprings. Characterized by its vibrant black and white hues and a thicker shell, it stands as a testament to precision in breeding.


  • Vibrant black and white coloration
  • Thicker shell for added resilience
  • Pure bred, no golden bee offspring
  • Direct importation from Taiwan

How to Keep:
