Malawa are small, 3/4" fully grown approximately. They're mostly clear-greyish in color. The pic on the link was due to lighting.

You said you got them from Petshrimp, do you have black/white CBS-like patterns on yours?

If you're talking about these:
http://www.petshrimp.com/csulawesi.php

They look exactly like "Princess Bees" (paracaridina) from Vietnam:

I think it's mislabeled.

Yeah I got them from Petshrimp, but they do not have the CBS-like markings, mine are mostly all light blue with no markings. I've been told it can take till adulthood to get the full colors/patterns but not sure mine will have any. Physically, they look EXACTLY like a tt or crs just different color so I'm confident they will cross and that they are not paracaridina's, malawa's, ect.

TTxCRSxTigerxCaridina Sulawesi are still going strong!






These are what I'm starting to get, they look like SS CRSxCrystal white or ghost, 1 white bar behind the head and black/brown CRS markings with the rest of the body clear.

Just wanted you to know i have enjoyed your journal tonight. Read it from start to end and had some really great info on shrimp.

This last set of pictures especially the first one has some probably the coolest looking shrimp I have seen so far. I love the pattern.

Unhappy

Sadly, these are all gone as of about 2 years ago

Had to move and they didn't like it at all, lost everything I had. I've since converted this tank to a sump for my 29gallon. Thinking about shrimp in the future but nothing major yet.
