Smile Shrimp Family Tree Project (pt. 1 - Caridina cantonensis)

I don't know about you guys, but I sometimes get very confused when it comes to understanding how shrimp are related to each other. It helps me to see things in a more visual format, so in an effort to make things more clear for myself (and maybe others) I'm trying to draw a family tree. Unfortunately, I'm going to need a lot of help!

My goal is to try and cover as many of the commonly (and sometimes less commonly) kept freshwater shrimp, including both caridina and neocaridina species. Right now I'm starting with the tiny node of the family tree that is caridina cantonensis, because that's the only one I know remotely anything about.


NOW FINISHED!:

SUGGESTIONS AND CRITICISMS WELCOME!

OEBTs and green hulks are already on there (though maybe not in the right place?)

Where do blue jellies and pinto bees fit into this chart?

Is a fancy tiger a kind of tibee?

There is an incredible amount of work here to complete. It will be quite a useful reference for everyone when it is complete though.

I was just thinking about where Blue Bolts come from just yesterday

Is a red tiger wild?? Also they are extreme red and extreme black not supreme. Also in the Tibee area but the pinto you could have fancy tiger.

Also in the tiawan bee area you would need Shadow panda
