DWARF SHRIMP SPECIES/COMMON NAMES. (picture heavy)


So, I was trying to find info all in one spot, but seems to be all over the web and planet invert site you have to click on every single shrimp to know to which group it belongs to.

PLEASE POST GOOD PICTURES OF THE SHRIMP THAT NEED IMAGES! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO'S SHARING!

( *=IMAGE AVAILABLE)


- The fist part of the list (no pics) is just a compendium of common names used to describe variants of each genus or phenotype(s).

- There may be people calling the same phenotype with different names, or even using the same common name for different phenotypes. (ie,see red neos or rillis)

- I will post in the second part of the list good pictures of what is commonly "known as or bought/sold as". So, its just to get an idea of how the bugs should look like.

- For ideal water parameters, or particular info about the shrimp use google please.

Just curious would making a list of the shrimps that can be house together just the common name like neo and carid or are they the only shrimps out there that can be house together


To clear it up I mean are there only two species (neo & carid) that can be house or is there a third or fourth species that can also be house in the same tank without inter breeding with each other

The problems not as much as housing them together as finding params that overlap that make them happy and allow them both to breed.

Caridina japonica is the old name for Amanos. They have been reclassified as Caridina multidentata.

They don't need to crazy breed but good enough to live together for a show tank
