Suggest me a cool neo shrimp

I've got a 2.5 filled with downoi (DSM at the moment) and I want a cool looking neocaridina to go in there. What would compliment the downoi nicely? Thanks

Orange on dark green would pop nicely.

I just got some tangerine tigers and the orange really shows well against the green moss in my 2.5g
I say go with orange neo, but I also have blue velvets and they show well in a small tank with a lot of green.

What color is your substrate? If it is white I think a carbon rili neo would look neat. If it is black, I agree with everyone above - orange. Here's a pic of the carbons that MsJinkzd has in stock: This is her picture from her site, not my picture.

Even better.....orange rili that rachel has got right now. If I had the space I'd buy some in a heart beat.

I've got FPS in the tank right now...I already have a caridina sp. (CRS) and no neos, but I may change my mind and get some TTs...

TTs look amazing, but I want to have neos again...

I guess I'll go with orange neos since that seems to be more popular...any objections?

LOL Why would we object? Your tank, dude. Do what you like.

I have seen yellow cherrys on a blue substrate with green plants and the colours are gorgeous
