looks like your blue was a female and crossed before you got it in the tank.

I don't know much about em, but the shrimp in the second photo looks a bit like a Suluwesi White Orchid shrimp to me.

If he accidental got 10 shrimp that are worth a few hundred dollars, I'd be amazed.

I'd almost want to say that they are wild types of whatever species the tiger shrimp is, but even then, something about that body shape seems different to me.

There has been some undocumented claims about neo x card crossing but nothing repeatable or genetically testable. When you say tigers, what tigers are you talking about? And why did you put only 1 female blue rili in a tank of different shrimp? Do you have other shrimp that could be in the tank that you don't see or got transferred? I was transferring some juvi cobra guppies last night and somehow dropped one in my CRS tank. Glad my roomie noticed or it would have been eating $15 SSS snack babies all night. lol.

+1 Some crosses happen, but are extremely rare. Could you have possibly moved a different shrimp over?

Doesn't look neo-ish to me. Maybe your tigers or your caridina spit it out?

Well, I was trying to see if cardina do breed with neo. I showed this shrimp to other people and they say it was impossible but I believe we just starting to understand shrimp. Shrimp hobby is still pretty new. I mean I have a five or six with stripish pattern

I believe Liam said it would get berried but never keep them or hatch.


Recently I was reading on Shrimpinsider about them getting paracaridina (blue bee) x caridina to cross. No words on viable offspring from that cross either yet though.
