Blue Shrimps

Neocardina Blues- These guys were normally sold off as blue shrimps, with their color ranging from transparent grey to blue to black. Their stable color is usually bluish grey with black stripes! People always have a misconception that those blue ones bought from LFS are usually fed with blue enhancer or being dyed. The truth is that those very colored ones with dark bluish or black tone are the ones under severe stress. As such those who have bought them would have realised these guys are the ones that die off the fastest.

I have experienced crossing them for few generations and yet able to receive any good results thus far. Colors still remain dull grey to bluish. Though some females may shown off positive colors but generations after still remain as bad. Despite so, I have high hopes for them. One day hope i can acheive a stable blue color with few exceptions some of them as solid black piece.

Red Beauty

Here's with another red beauty to share, though she does not show a thick shell appearance as her ruby red counter part. Her overall appearance still strikes a 10/10 score (at least for me). These 2 pictures simply make her looks like a shrimp toy model.

Ruby red in the making

An upcoming star in the making... About 4months old and it has a deep red appearance. Lets see how this guy will fare in 2months time.

The species of Green shrimp

Recently got these green guys from LFS and have been trying hard to figure their true identity. Neocaridina or caridina? Though their body structure point to a neocaridina strain, several online sources claimed they are Caridina. Well its still good to find it out myself. As usual. these guys are going to stay with my side for experimenting crosses and to determine their identity. Hope I can get some interesting findings and crosses.
