Maybe I'm mistaken here but doesn't the female pass the eggs to the carriage right after mating? I didn't think there was an extended period of time where they stayed in the saddle after mating and then moved.

You are correct, female mates with many males and then recovers for a few hours before moving eggs down

Also you should rename this, tangerine tiger has a misleading name. It's not a tiger shrimp at all, it's a separate species called serrata. Tiger shrimp (and all of their morphs) are cantonensis.

This is something that has always sparked my curiosity as well in knowing that they aren't C. cantonensis then why are they called "Tigers"? I guess because of the similar Tiger features I guess.

All reference I have ever seen is that of a TT. Is there another common name that they are associated with then?

I know Germans used to call them orange or red tuepfel, but I think they've abandoned that name in favor of tangerine tiger as well

But it is a new serrata morph

Yes that is the correct name for them and they are aggressive breeders, will breed with anything that moves Maybe not neos, but all tigers and crs are fair game to these shrimps.

This is the same shrimp as Aura Blue which is also called Blue Tuepfel in Germany...this species comes in Red, Blue and now the Orange.

They look more brown than red to me, but a reddish amber I guess you could call it.

the 12th picture down is the red tuepfel shrimp. They are a color morph and sadly rather rare in the hobby and difficult to keep. Last year I was hell-bent to import them and found a German breeder who keeps them and he would have sold me a large batch. However, getting them into the country is difficult. Blue aura shrimp are the same species but a different color morph.
