I have Neocaridina parameters and would like to get some orange eyed blue tiger shrimp. Has anyone had any experience keeping them in a higher ph or neo parameters?

I did a quick google search and the first 2 (thats as far as I looked) said parameters Ph6-7.5, so you won't have a problem I'm sure of that.

I think your biggest problem may be getting them?

They're pricey... like very very pricey ? 

Generally anywhere from $15-25 AUD, not sure how much in the US. Hard to find too. 

Parameters would be like with other tigers - pH 6.6-6.8, GH 3-5, KH 1-3 if you're keeping them with neos.

They are cheaper here. I also wouldn’t get super high quality ones. I read they can be in slightly higher than neutral ph and harder water than moss caridina

The few times my pH has gone above neutral, I've lost one. Definitely can handle better than most caridina, but just try to aim for 6.8 or so.

Ok. I would have to get someone that bred them in neo Parameters I guess. Pretty hardy tho?

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
