I don't know about you guys, but I sometimes get very confused when it comes to understanding how shrimp are related to each other. It helps me to see things in a more visual format, so in an effort to make things more clear for myself (and maybe others) I'm trying to draw a family tree. Unfortunately, I'm going to need a lot of help!

My goal is to try and cover as many of the commonly (and sometimes less commonly) kept freshwater shrimp, including both caridina and neocaridina species. Right now I'm starting with the tiny node of the family tree that is caridina cantonensis, because that's the only one I know remotely anything about.


NOW FINISHED!:

There is an incredible amount of work here to complete. It will be quite a useful reference for everyone when it is complete though.

I was just thinking about where Blue Bolts come from just yesterday
