What is your favorite shrimp?

I'm starting an new 6G tank and am debating what kind of shrimp to add in...

So far i have CRS/CBS Pumpkins and Rillis in other tanks..


The new tank current just has rock/fluval stratum. I will be doing a carpet of HC and maybe a few small plants



What kind of shrimp do you guys "love" and recommend?

My current favorite dream shrimp is the snow white shrimp where the shell is completely thick white.

However, if they were to breed out princess bee shrimp with high quality thick black and white bands then they'd be my favorite.

Garlic butter shrimp...

Ok sorry, I am hungry. For real though, I am still new to shrimp but I like the Snowball Shrimp and the Blue Pearl Shrimp, Sunkist, and Blueberry Shrimp. Good luck finding them though.

OEBT and blue bolts are pretty awesome but pricey!

Wouldn't be cheap to stock a tank!

Shadow Pandas, Blue/black carbon rili, OEBT/BTOE, and orange neos but it looks like you have those already.

I'm a huge fan of Carbon Rilis, Orange Rilis and the Bloody Marys that someone posted a thread about recently.

I really like TTs and Black tigers as well.

My favorite shrimp are my low grade crs. I think of peppermint candycane when I see them. Of course that reminds me of Christmas which reminds me to buy more shrimp for myself for Christmas!

Did I mention brackish Opae Ula? Easy to keep, always active and swimming? Much more interesting than any freshwater dwarf shrimp. :-)
