There are two recognized species of Neocaridina frequently bred within captivity. That said it is possible that there are more types... that is, perhaps the blues came from a different species as the reds... and the yellows came from a different species as well.

For all intents and purposes, all Neocaridina within captivity are considered to be N. davidi, except for Snowball, Blueberry/Blue Pearl and an Amber (not really seen) which are N. palmata.
