Hey guys!

I do a good bit of reading online, and I found a text file hidden away on this web page with a list of many of the crustaceans we keep. It seems like this could be a helpful tool, so I figured I would post it here.

Again, I did not compile this.

If you'd like me to add something or change something, or you just really like it, say so!

Thanks,
Mark

Why are neos under dwarf shrimp while caridinas are not? Also, please do not bump this all the time.

Didn't bump for over two months. People suggested this was a useful list, and I didn't want it to be buried.

I was under the impression Cardinia were a tad bit bigger than neos.

Why has this not been stickied
Not too sure. I think the list should either be copy pasted into a sticky or something like it.

I could make it a goal to add pictures to each species.. Hmm

there already is a thread somewhere that has species and pictures. also i believe some of the names have been changed and it should be cited since you did not create it

I noted that I didn't create it, but the source was obscure and the author unclear. I often just copy paste things into a folder of documents to read later.

Didn't know there was a thread like that bouncing around.

What names have been changed?

i believe a couple of the cardina have been reclassified. and whether or not you noted that you didnt create it you should still cite the source you obtained it from.

Couldn't find it again if you paid me. As I said before, it was obscure.

If you have something specific for me I could modify it?

Very nice. Did you just copy paste the list into google?

Google is my friend. It is where I chanced upon it before. I read a lot.

I've never pasted something so long into google.

Mark - thanks for the useful list. I added it to the forum sticky.

Three things I wanted to mention...
  • If you find a source, please reference it in your OP
  • Consider improvements to the formatting - make it a real bullet list, remove asterisks, change the latin names to italic, etc for easier readability.
  • I am not locking the thread since I feel the related discussion is usually beneficial. However, if it starts to get off-topic it will get cleaned up and locked.

Sounds great. Appreciate it very much. I'll be searching for the original source in my history, but I assume it'll come up fruitless. I'll also copy paste it like it was suggested in the thread.

I'll be happy to reformat it here soon.
