I have 4 of these, and a few others with a light and see-through body. I have googled and searched, but nothing comes close to this species. 2 of them are pregnant, so I hope to see what the babies will look like.

They could be "wild type" Neos. You can confirm this if you put two shrimp together of opposite sex - one red one brown/clear. If the female gets pregnant by the lone male, then you know it's Neocaridina.

 

As per another post elsewhere, you say it came from a blue shrimp... so "wild type" from mixing two different types of Neos together that were not "compatible" and offspring reverted to "wild type".

That being said, if it IS a wild type neo, it's one of the prettiest ones I've seen 🙂 Maybe you discovered a new species, "Leopard Cherries"

Definitely keep us posted on what the offspring look like. It would be amazing to start a strain that looks like this.

If bred to a solid color, I think they'd just be called "chocolates".

My previous so called wild cherries, gave me 2 blue, 1 red and some clear ones, they are about 6mm now, just waiting to see my last wild cherries, see what it gives me. I have a yellow with a golden band along the back, that gave me all yellows.

      Yah idk if it would do heaps of added extra for a tank ... I would add more air via a pump before I spent $15 on the device

      Don't know about effectiveness on breeding, but additional oxygen in the water can't go wrong. It's probably better for overcrowded tanks.

      Any Update on the effectiveness of this on shrimp and breeding?

      Id put in maybe a liter or 2 of water (1cm of water in the tank) and put in a couple handfuls of substrate at the base just to help, the other substrate to them cover it which will have the main contact with your water allowing for the buffering effects (and the colour difference if there is one wont be noticed).

      I currently have a small pipe heater in the current tank that i can use for the new one, that technically makes my new project cheaper because i now don't need 2. can i get dimensions of this thank fully assembled including the top cover just so i can determine if i need to adapt my shelving. i don't mind poking out a corner of the tank from the shelf so i can do water changes and i can lift the tank onto another surface for heavy maintenance if necessary. Im really just interested if there is space for feeding without moving the tank.
