  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have had a Fluval Spec III for about 2.5 years now and have had neocarcaridina in it for about 2 years now. I have 1 neon and 2 cardinal tetras (3-5 months) and one nerite snail (years old). lots of Java moss, a couple moss balls and a fern type plant in the back, along with some cholla...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am very, very new to shrimp keeping and aquariums in general. I care for a tank in a local library. The tank is a 10gal that was being cared for in a local pet shop. There are 7 neon tetras and I believe 12 dwarf shrimp. The tank came planted with a variety of live plants in sand, with a...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently purchased some orange neos from an online retailer, and upon receiving them I noticed that several had reddish discoloration on their bodies, as shown in the attached pictures. This looks like rust disease to me, but I want to get a second opinion before doing anything drastic to my...

    Is there truly a difference between most "black rose" and most "chocolate" Neocaridina on the market? I like truly chocolate colored neos, but these seem to be hard to come by. I see a lot of shrimp being sold as variations on black/black chocolate/black rose/chocolate at once, not one or the...

  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, I’m relatively new to the shrimp-keeping hobby, so I’m definitely inexperienced. I have an 8.75 G planted tank with 9 Bloody Mary shrimp, 3 Mystery Snails, and a LOT of pest snails (which I don’t mind). I’ve had the tank for about 4 months and have had the shrimp for around 3, and I saw one...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello, I am not a active breeder nor really plan on it I just like having a lot of shrimps in my 30 gallon community tanks. I purchased 18 "yellow Bee shrimp" which I'm under the impression are just a fancy name for yellow neos. I have a cherry tank as well, but my yellows keep only throwing...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    What's everyone's preferred temperature for keeping and breeding Caridina (mixed bees?) What about Neocaridina (Bloody Mary?) In the late summer my temperatures were going to high for them, so I removed the heaters, however now that winter is here the temps are dropping pretty low. It's an old...
  9. Tank Journals
    Since taking up this hobby back in January I've had a lot of trial and error, ups and downs, and general frustration. I've made progress, and learned a lot. These are my current aquariums, and I'm proud of both of them even if they're not perfect. Both are running with established filter media...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Update: Thank you to everyone who gave me feedback on the situation! I only lost one shrimp thankfully despite my mistake and everyone seems comfortable now. I've decided to give rcs their own planted 3 gallon with parameters matched to the ones from their breeder. The aquarium isn't cycled but...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, Bottom line up front: 3 year old 40 gallon breeder started with 15 males/15 females cherry shrimp. I purchased from SoShrimp and the product was good. This tank's numbers grew in sync with available life cycle information. Hundreds of shrimp in a few months time. They are on the...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all, Finally got some red cherry shrimp I've been fancying for a while, and they are cutest little things! Only problem - the fish in my community tank weren't as shrimp-friendly as I'd thought, so they'll have to move! I have them safely in a floating breeder box for now, where they can...

    I have 10 Ember tetras in a 12 gallon tank (with some ramshorn snails..) would it be possible to keep neocaridina without problems? I would want the colony to grow. :nerd:
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Does anyone know what grade/what is it acutally called? It was sold as yellow stripe shrimp (neocaridina). Is it good quality? https://imgur.com/cyNT2Sr
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I would like to establish a tank of Neocardina, I'm interested in some of the brighter morphs, like orange, yellow or painted red. Will all Neocardina color morphs eventually revert to wild coloration if they are not consistently culled? Is one morph less likely to revert due to the recessive...
