most of the time when they go opaque its bacterial infection. ghost shrimp should be clear. and dont feel really bad most are feeder shrimp and are not kept in good condition so they die pretty fast. if you end up losing them clean the tank well and make sure all is good and give cherrys a try you might end up with better luck

cherry shrimp are pretty easy. if you like other colors there are others out there that are just as easy as cherrys. think cousins lol. blues, orange, yellow, brown many color neo's are all a good place to start and they all came from the red.

That is either a sign of molting, or sign of bacterial infection. If it's the latter, you may need to bleach everything to get rid of the bacteria/disease causing organism, if you don't do that there is a possibility that it will also infect cherries and any new shrimp you put in.

I think its molting because it comes and goes... and the one shrimp I had that did have a infection.. he started turning white at the tip of his tail and it progressed up to his middle... it looks nothing like what my opaque shrimp look like...

Harder than cherries to breed and keep happy...at least from my experience.

Java moss it is easy to grow and necessary for baby shrimp to live in and eat the slime and such off of it when they are first born.

they are the same type. there is/was a green neo being sold a while ago but dont seem to be around any more. the green babalti can be several shades of green. and as cool as they sound you dont see them to much lol. green shrimp in a tank with green plants tend to blend in quite well.

That explains a lot lol the babalti is the only kind I see online. Is there a difference in value between the different colors of neocardinia?

IME yellow and diamond neos seem to be more sensitive, but the others are pretty much the same.

I *think* there is a difference between green babaulti and dark green. (At least info I looked up at the time suggested there was.) I had dark greens.

Yea I have read the same thing but there is a lot of talk saying that its the same spe lies of shrimp and some peoples have selectively bred dark green and say they are a caridinia species... but I honestly don't know one way or the other... I never see the caridinia type for sale anywhere. I always see them say they are caridinia babaulti species.
