That's not a Green Cherry, THIS IS !!!

Slow process with the selective breeding of green cherries, lots of culling and patience, thought I was progressing reasonably with these outcome...

I can tell that photo of "Yours" is photoshopped BB, so I ran it through a sophisticated program which removes any signs of manipulation, I was left with this completely un-edited rubbish...

I can see why you decided to edit the original, its terrible :P

I have to agree, the "Jade Green" shrimp has got me all excited, maybe a bit too much to be normal, such a beautiful colour! :worthy:

You have to admit Bluebolts that by having at least some pretty fine green cherry shrimp to start with, your a lot closer to the jade cherry than the rest of us.

Bluebolts can he breed it? Yes he can.

      It's definitely ellobiopsidae. Our own Diseases and Diagnostics thread, that Simon linked, has a post all about it including possible treatment. Ellobiopsidae is highly contagious. So remove any shrimp you see with it immediately into a quarantine tank. Not many known cures, but Formalin/Malachite treatments seem to have the best possibility of killing it.

      I've always like Iwagumi style scapes. So I'm partial to idea #1. It suits your tank as well, being shallow.   Have you seen Bonsai moss trees for aquariums? Those root driftwood can look really good in a tank. Just got to get the right size for scale.

      Here are a couple of vids, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-FhLa3gl5o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfFyDb5o4iA It would be worth trying the salt treatment, or malachite green. I have 'Waterlife fin rot and ulcers' treatment that I got from ProShrimp, that definitely has malachite green in it and may work, though they may sell something 'malachite green' on its own? Here is a link to their treatments, lots, https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/search?controller=search&orderby=position&orderway=desc&search_query=treatment&submit_search= Always treat seperately from the main tank, and if you can set up a temporary quarantine tank to house them during the period of treatment, that is better, even a bucket or something would do!

      We havent added anything new for a while. The yellow is definitely not eggs but from what I can read on line that is the parasite. It is only on the underside of the shrimp. Looking on line seems to suggest ellobiopsidae!! Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk

      Sorry to hear you have a problem. It is difficult to make out from the photos but obviously it is difficult to take photos of something so small? Try looking here, there were a coupe of possibilities I noticed having a quick glance through it, vorticello, parasites https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/5052-shrimp-diseases-and-diagnosis/ Both the ones I saw say salt treatment so that may be worth a try anyway (not household salt but aquarium salt)! Any idea where they came from, have you added anything new recently? I assume the yellow colour is eggs of the shrimp. Hopefully you can set up a temporary quarantine tank whilst you try the salt treatment and others may give some further advice! Simon
