List of hobby inverts


Very nice. Did you just copy paste the list into google?

Google is my friend. It is where I chanced upon it before. I read a lot.

I've never pasted something so long into google.

You're missing Caridina multidentata, Amano shrimp.

Nope, it is in there! Thanks for helping make the list better though.

Mark - thanks for the useful list. I added it to the forum sticky.

Three things I wanted to mention...
  • If you find a source, please reference it in your OP
  • Consider improvements to the formatting - make it a real bullet list, remove asterisks, change the latin names to italic, etc for easier readability.
  • I am not locking the thread since I feel the related discussion is usually beneficial. However, if it starts to get off-topic it will get cleaned up and locked.

Sounds great. Appreciate it very much. I'll be searching for the original source in my history, but I assume it'll come up fruitless. I'll also copy paste it like it was suggested in the thread.

I'll be happy to reformat it here soon.

I don't see Caridina formosae in the list, like this shrimp of mine.

You can see that she is pissed that you missed her species.

Never saw that post! Sorry. Is that an amano shrimp? What is its common name?

Nice list. Maybe add a note when a species is illegal to ship/sell (or own/trade) banned or whatever? It is the responsible thing to do. Only saying since Pomacea canaliculata (apple snail) jumped out at me bcse it is SO banned!

Oh, and the "Vampire Shrimp" – Atya gabonensis should be on there.

Not sure if it has a common name but it's Caridina formorsae. I got some and they grow nicely with my Taiwan bees. I did it on purpose because "formorsae" was the old name of Taiwan island.

Perhaps these could be added to the list if they're not already there?

Limnopilos naiyanetri (Thai micro crab)
Lumbriculus variegatus (California blackworm)
Atya gabonensi (viper shrimp)
Cherax holthuisi (sunbolt fire lobster)
Cherax tenuimanus (marron)


I've also seen at my LFS a species that was sold under the name 'Pygmy Sunkist Lobsters' which were slightly less than an inch on and which the owner said were already at their full size. Can't find any info on it so I have my doubts on whether or not they were fully grown or even a legitimate pygmy species/subspecies.

I'd rather have fish profiles added to the website than just a list in a thread. Not sure if anyone is still in charge of approving those though since new profiles are not coming up but that seems it would be the most helpful way to find the info.
