Caridina cf. babaulti “Black” what do u think?

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/in...5-off-any.html

Rachel imported Caridina cf. babaulti “Black”
never heard about it before so i had to try
she sent me adult/juvi mix and few were even barried!!!

after few days, they are so hard to find eventhough they are in front of my eye lol
so i decided to catch them and took some pictures

Those look very sweet. Didn't know babaulti's come in that coloration now. Did Rachael say what kind of parameters they like to breed in? And what are parameters are you keeping them in?

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
