    The trip started at 9AM at "Huế" city - the ex-capital of Viet Nam and the place that the Cryptocoryne Vietnamensis is found,the collecting field is about 30 minutes driving(or i can say riding) from the city

    And this is the first sight :


    You know.......how hard it is to take a macro shot with a little mini small model

    The shrimps is so bold that they can stand on his hand

    Much of shrimp,huh ? Just one swing

    You can see there are alot of shimps in this little hole.



    And the second sight :
    Nice view,eh ?

    And nice shrimp too

    Another hole

    With another lots of shrimp :



    And here are the shrimps that they tooks :


    P/S One more pic :

    Interesting! Are these critters the so called black diamond shrimps too? I do not see the red versions meaning all the red diamond shrimps (CRS) are all man made?

    Hi everyone,
    I'm the one who made the trip with some friends from Hue, VN.
    Thanks zQ for introducing my trip from TSO to AQ community.

    I didn't measure, but I was in the water and I "felt" it was approximately 24-26 Celsius.

    One of my trip partners took some water specimen from the places we visited. If he finishes his work we'll know.

    Absolutely yes, it's an open place. The matter is that if you could reach the right place or not

    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    question: why are you wearing your helmets when catching shrimp?

    To hwchoy: Thanks for inviting, but I don't live in HCMC. Some are wearing their helmets just because they have just ridden their motorbikes and forgotten to take them off. It's also sunny. I'm behind the camera without a helmet!
