I have only been keeping Neocaridinas for about two months now, I have 10 blue dream neos in one tank, and 12 orange neos in a separate tank. The tank with the 10 blue dream neos has been slightly problematic though because it's a smaller tank and waste builds up a little faster.
That being said, can anybody ID this swimmer in my shrimp tank? There is only 1 that I can see, it appears to have an exoskeleton almost like a shrimp, and it swims at the surface of the water by whipping its tail. I don't think it's a baby shrimp fry because I'm just now seeing my first female berried up and there haven't been any births before, but I suppose it is possible a fry snuck in with my order. Any help would be appreciated 😁
I'm in USA
I got these from a pet store
They were being sold as something they clearly are not
Larger than cherry shrimp, smaller than amanos (as in, at best, females get to the size of an adult male amano, but not female from what little I can see)
*LARVAL STAGE of 1+ weeks*
I've been told these are 4 different species (well, 6 or 7 if we count the ones I know aren't true) so I'm looking for some second opinions on what they might be... what I do know is that after a week or so, the larvae have not transformed into miniature adults. These are some of the more colorful shrimp, some have less colors but they all mainly share the dark "band" midway down their tail, except males which may appear very bland. (I'm not entirely sure it's only one species of shrimp...)
And a 5+ day old larvae/zoe (younger zoe don't show as much color - more clear)
And just to throw a curve ball in there... here's another shrimp that was mixed in with the type above! (clear shrimp, appears more yellow than he really is... this is also a relatively small shrimp, hardly any bigger than an adult cherry shrimp. He's the only one...)
My name is Kenny, and i'm from Belgium.
Since a year or so i am keeping Caridina species.
I love the little animals, and i love watchin them work their way around the aquarium.
Hi I am new with caridinas and I want to make a shrimp rack to keep them.
It would have four shelves and in each one of them would fit an aquarium of 82.5x29.5x15'5 and I want to divide it into two or three or four partitions that water communicate between them somehow but I do not know how to do it. Some suggestions to make the dives so that water is shared among all and that the young can not pass from one to another.
I added an image where you can see how the possible divisions would be interesting to divide it into four partitions but every division is very small and I want them to be communicated to compensate that they are small aquariums and achieve a greater stability of water parameters altogether all of them.
Sorry for my English I tried to do my best because I am from Spain and I am not English speaking.
Greetings and thanks.
I'm starting a brand new #neomix tank. I won't be adding or taking out any shrimp, just documenting developments along the way. I'm interested to see if any new variants develop, and what the tendency towards brown is. I'll be sharing updates on my channel if you are interested in following along. Enjoy! #shrimptv
