HolyAngel Sadly, these are all gone as of about 2 years ago

Had to move and they didn't like it at all, lost everything I had. I've since converted this tank to a sump for my 29gallon. Thinking about shrimp in the future but nothing major yet.

peachii Just wanted you to know i have enjoyed your journal tonight. Read it from start to end and had some really great info on shrimp.

This last set of pictures especially the first one has some probably the coolest looking shrimp I have seen so far. I love the pattern.

HolyAngel TTxCRSxTigerxCaridina Sulawesi are still going strong!

These are what I'm starting to get, they look like SS CRSxCrystal white or ghost, 1 white bar behind the head and black/brown CRS markings with the rest of the body clear.

HolyAngel Tiger x CRS

08-23-2012 03:58 PM
HolyAngel Yeah I got them from Petshrimp, but they do not have the CBS-like markings, mine are mostly all light blue with no markings. I've been told it can take till adulthood to get the full colors/patterns but not sure mine will have any. Physically, they look EXACTLY like a tt or crs just different color so I'm confident they will cross and that they are not paracaridina's, malawa's, ect.

xenxes If you're talking about these:

They look exactly like "Princess Bees" (paracaridina) from Vietnam:

I think it's mislabeled.

xenxes Malawa are small, 3/4" fully grown approximately. They're mostly clear-greyish in color. The pic on the link was due to lighting.

You said you got them from Petshrimp, do you have black/white CBS-like patterns on yours?

HolyAngel Nice yeah thanks, serrata can definitely cross with cantonensis as you can see ^^

And hmm.. I'm pretty sure these aren't malawa shrimp, I've seen those and they're generally bigger and colored differently. These that I have are a currently undisclosed species that hasn't been classified yet, but they are caridina's like crs, just from the Sulawesi area instead of southeast Asia.

xenxes wow interesting crosses, didn't know serrata could x cantonensis, subbed!

Those sulawesi are malawa shrimp. Were you able to cross them with anything else?

rodcuda something is strange there, I cannot imagine why the PH would be so high.

HolyAngel Nothing too exciting here, but a decent vid of one of the Red Tiger x CRS(also a TT x CRS, and some PFR's):
