Crystal Blue bee shrimp

Is there really such a shrimp? (Caridina Cantonesis)

The Blue Jelly in this diagram kinda looks like one


But i've never seen a Caridina Cantonesis Blue Jelly either.

The closest I could find to it was a picture of a blue tibee, though i don't think such a shrimp would breed true.

If anyone knows where i can find Blue jellies as depicted in the diagram above, I would love to know!

That's a pretty awesome chart. Kudos to the person that put that together.

Here's a link to a blue jelly online.

Blue jellies are not common tb in USA. The price is probably going to exceed 30$ each

No tb in us that I'm aware of breed true. However it is not impossible to get them to breed true. But if you line breed them to breed true, or buy some that are claimed to breed true expect to pay a pretty penny for them.

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!

The shrimp pictured is a tibee and would take a while to stabilize if even possible. I'm talking years. Blue jellies aren't common in the us as far as I know. I see I just repeated info that's what I get for skimming!

There is also a "blue bee shrimp" which at least some are claiming is a "wild variant"
