    To all bros out there...

    Im interested in the different kinds of shrimps for my planted tank. Any good ideas where to get them and the special requirements for each different type of shrimp.

    1) Cherry shrimp
    2) mosquito shrimp
    3) Malayan Shrimp
    4) Tiger shrimp



    Thx...

    can also try this green shrimp that recently came on the market… (click for big pic)

    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.

    You can try the blue shrimp as well, pretty hardy as they romp over my shrimp tank

    Hi,

    I got my supply at Eco-culture, not dirt cheap but decent price. You can find good shrimp supply at Lake aquarium at Ginza Plaza.

    Currently have 30+ cherry shrimps, 10 blue shrimps, 5 mosquito shrimps, 5 green shrimps in my shrimp tank.

    Cheers

    This is an interesting site
    http://www.shrimpcrabsandcrayfish.co.uk/Caridina.htm
    Apparently blue and green shrimp are a real species, not just Malayan shrimps like what some LFS owners would have you believe. My blue shrimp from Ecoculture looks just like the website's.

    don't get excited yet, people know very little about these shrimps except that they're probably all in the Neocaridina genus. The key is to see if they interbreed with others, such as malayan or tiger.

    some pics of th blue shrimp…





    think the LFS calls this zebra shrimp… I don't see why but they're nice… I think the catchlight on the eggs are nice.

    well why not try this BIG shrimp instead, the Atyopsis moluccensis aka Singapore shrimp or Wood shrimp…

    how's the survival rate of blue shrimp? as hardy as tigers or as fragile as bumblebee?
