Neocaridina Family

This family of shrimp is smaller than the Caridina family of shrimp. They are small and would not hurt even the smallest of fry from any type of creature. These shrimp eat the most type of algae, however not the most in quantity. All shrimp in this family give birth to "miniature" shrimp, and the babies will eat what the adults eat. These shrimp are all very easy to raise, and I recommend these shrimp for any beginning hobbyist for he are very tolerant. All of the shrimp in this family are descendants of Neocaridina Heteropoda or Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis.

* Note, all shrimp in this family should be kept separate because they will interbreed

Red Cherry Shrimp

"Yellow" Shrimp

Blue Pearl Shrimp

Orange Shrimp

Snowball Shrimp

* Will add info and Pictures Later

This is just a base as of right now...

maybe change the title to list of common neocaridina in the hobby?

i think listing the wild type is also important.

orange shrimp? is that Caridina cf. propinqua?

neocaridina Orange has no official name yet because the strain is found in all neocardina species
