''Atyaephyra desmaresti'', Iberian/European dwarf shrimp?

OP makes it hard to tell, perhaps another angle?

It is a propinqua or orange bee as they were labeled, that had some color enhancing foods.

They matched the description of an orange bee Caridina cf. propinqua when I bought them. Matched with planet inverts data.

The image of the orange shrimp with the C. cf. julii is the youngest and only survivor of two batches of berries.

Very hard tap and the only length I went into protecting the larvae were prefilters. I never intended to breed them, just add some color and interest... Little did I know they would turn muddy brown(then blue for a day.)

Well, maybe I'm a derp.. they have it labeled as a cantonensis... http://www.planetinverts.com/Orange%20Bee%20Shrimp.html

And most of that is very wrong... Brb.. internet time...

The shrimp in this thread look identical to how mine did when I got them.. Caridina cf. propinqua (Orange Bee Shrimp)

And I think it might even be a smidge large to be a cf. babaulti. Though I've never seen them in person, the shrimp trade is practically non-existant here.

Ah well those are too common, I thought you had more exotic tastes! :P

Oh i think the planetinverts are referring to a different species.

Yeah, too many names get tossed around. You can't even slap a taxonomical on some properly. Gold rush scientists simply slapped their name on every species.. and here we are a few generations later sorting out the mess.

Trust me, if I had the budget to invest in the goodies... Which is really me putting off buying and ro/di... I'd be all over the tigers. I don't so much care for the crystal red, but those golden/white ones... They're awefully sexy! Cbs are neat too.

Could I just go old school and build a still? It'd save me some cash flow on di resins.

well if you had survivors in fresh water they are deff not propinqua as propinqua need salt for larva to live and grow. the name is not propinqua any more though, i never can remember what the new name is took me forever to spell propinqua right lol.

Was it ever proven that salt is the factor vs say seasonal change in kh or something? I've read a few times that they are still collected from the wild.

And people will still tell you all ghosts need brackish water to breed, that's simply not true in the case of the feeders here... Who do I trust? Lol

I'm trying to refind a thread where the OP attempts to raise the larvae in graduated degrees of brackish water with a zero success rate. If I'm not mistaken he/she tried two or three times, starting with a routine used with amanos.

I don't know which forum, this would've been long before I signed up here.

I'm not seeing it yet... At any rate, that shrimp showed up bright orange and the size of an adult cherry one day... So, it either snuck in some how.. even though I've not even seen them for sale again since... Or it defied science.

one of the members here tried to breed them for quite a while and gave up. maybe he will chime in soon. as for ghost shrimp that name is just tossed around any more to any clear feeder shrimp.

There are so many species of ghost shrimp. A small few 2-4 will breed in FW. Good luck telling them apart, attempting to breed them.

They're difficult because they're mostly wild caught.
