The shrimp in your picture looks like a neocaridina species. It does not look like Caridina cf. babaulti "Green".
The true green shrimp(Caridina cf. babaulti "Green") looks like this:

Yours might be a neocaridina that is greenish in color. I have seen them.
what color is the saddle and eggs?

Cheers,

I do not see why my comment is negative. Also, I did not say your shrimp were not green.

What in the trade is called green shrimp is the Caridina cf. babaulti "Green". If you look at the picture you posted the body has the shape of a neocaridina species.

if they are green or not I can't tell from the picture.

Cheers,

Green Shrimp+plants on a large scale = moving plants.
IT'S ALIVE I TELL YOU as your guest looks at the plants moving.
Now how can I help you thin your herd? I have always wanted my plants to move. LOL

I think Milalic has had such a hard time getting true greens he's always optimistic on them now...

I think you're going to need to send him some:icon_bigg

And when weathers good (spring probably) I'll have to get some as well!

I do have the Caridina cf. babaulti "Green". They breed very slow and the shrimp grow very slow. You can ask other people that have this same shrimp and they will tell you the same. If it breeds fast, it is not this shrimp.

Milalic is right, Caridina cf. babaulti is called "Green shrimip" I have a few in my tank right now. Babies do grow very slowly comparing to cherries.
