I've been working on my Nessie strain for several years now. I'm hoping to be able to offer some low grade ones this summer, but then again, I thought that last year. heh

My thinking has been invert-ed!

I have a buddy who is ultra old school, doesn't really sell his shrimp except maybe at the odd swap, and absolutely for no reason will he ever ship. He has some killer neon greens but he lives sort of out in the middle of nowhere, trying to meet up with him to pick up a batch to start breeding since he won't.

Wait, I'm confused. You asked for neon green NEOS, which Soothing showed you his green neo strain he's developing. Then you post a pic of Green babaultis which are NOT neos, they are a different type of shrimp. It's not the same term for a different shrimp, they are different shrimp. Shrimpress, the shrimp you posted a pic of look like babaultis just from what I can tell in the head shape. So, OP, what are you looking for? Babaultis or neos cause they are different types of shrimp. Green and dark green babaultis are easier to find than green neos probably any day of the week

Bright green? I have seen some emerald, bright greens being developed overseas but nothing readily available. Soothing had a couple of neon/lime green neos but no luck breeding as far as I know (I'm sure he'll come back and chime in). If you found them available right now as far as a neo goes you'd be paying a hefty price tag on it. Babaultis are going to be more like $4-5 a piece but are far more difficult to breed than neos, or rather, I didn't have any luck with them and have heard they are not only difficult to breed but rather slow growers as well.

The genus Caridina encompasses a LOT of freshwater shrimp. It depends on what you mean 'different'. They are not known to cross with other species as far as I know. Here, some of this might help you

http://shrimpery.com/shrimps/item/green-babaulti

Just look at pics of green babaultis. They aren't shaped like other shrimp in the hobby (not like neos or bees or tiger, etc). Look at the eye placement on their head. They are quite different in many ways. I'm sorry I just don't understand what you mean by 'different'. If you saw 'neon green' shrimp somewhere they were more than likely babaultis if I had to guess.
