I've had this happen before, sadly I lost all my shrimp during my move due to an error on the movers part : (

Awesome shrimp Dude!!

Here are the black shrimp that i have. There are 4 different shrimp here. The first is a young female. The second is one that is mostly black but you can see on her tail where there is some transparency with a blue hue. The 3rd and 4th pic are of the same female, currently my most solid black shrimp (the one in the first pic is a very close second). The problem is they are all females. The last pic is my darkest male, however you can see he has a blueish purple tint, so not solid black but he is my "stud" in this project...for now lol

I would love to see more examples of black neos! This would be such a cool line to develop and have a consistant strain. Happy shrimping all

Wow, these are pretty nice.

The two that posted ACTUAL photos. Duck & Dude....
  • How long have your tanks been setup?
  • Size of your tanks?
  • What make & model filter are you using?
  • What kind of food you're feeding? How often?

-The tank has been setup for around 4 months

-I have all the black neos in a 2.5 gallon. I have two other blue diamond females in with my 3 black females and the one male pictured above. One of the other blue diamonds is berried, i'm just waiting for one of the black to berry.

-Filter is just a basic sponge. I believe rated for a 15 gallon tank?

-Diet is very mixed. Blanched spinach/kale, various Jakes om nom nom (amazing stuff), and the occasional blood worm treat. I feed very small amounts every other day or two. No real schedule i suppose.

Those blacks look nice, Duck.

Dude, interesting shrimp. Looks like an uneven chocolate. You may get some interesting offspring by breeding it.

I've seen no American black shrimp breed true yet, but that doesn't mean they are not out there or being worked on as we speak. I'd love some pfb. heh

Almost look a bit like a Kanoko shrimp leaning. Obviously, kanoko's are more red, but if you breed these see what happens!

Can you explain to me what a Kanoko shrimp is? And why none are around anymore (extinct?)?
