That's cause they aren't a Neocaridina Davidi, they are Neocaradina Palmata. That is why the eggs are a different colour. :D

Same as the Pearl Blues that carry white eggs. :thumbsu:

Great to see it finished, would orange from reds be different to sunkist, they have a more solid colour. Maybe fire orange?

Cheers mick

From my research & experience, Sunkist comes from reds, as you line breed then they tend to lighten a bit.

      Blanch a couple of them. Let's see if we can get the shrimp to eat them.

      Leaves added. Ordered the Oregano oil!Fingers crossed!!
    • jayc
      Yes, it is external. That's why I suggested carvocrol. It will work both internally and externally.  The oil if soak in food will be eaten to treat internal bacteria. Add some diluted oil into the water column for external treatments. Doses can be found in the Disease and Diagnostics post.   Yes. But it's not like using carvocrol oil. Oregano leaves just aid in the process of using carvocrol oil.   Give it 3 days after treatment. And note: you might want to add a second dose 2-3 days after the first. So wait until you finish all repeat doses of carvocrol oil before adding the filters back in.    In case you didn't pick it up. The source of the info from the site you posted is our very own Diseases and Diagnostics post (see the disclaimer section in the link you provided).  The info here is more up to date. You will need to treat the whole tank with Carvocrol oil, if you have a bacterial infection. Just save as much beneficial bacteria as you can before adding the oil. Carvocrol oil is very soluble, so it will mix in the water well.    Carvocrol oil isn't cheap, so hopefully we are treating the right ailment. Assuming it is bacterial in nature and not a water parameter issue. As I said, the pictures provided were too low in resolution. Good luck.

      I looked at the one here following the original site I posted. I am unable to quarantine to use oregano oil. And isn’t the bacterial shell disease external. It would be nice to attack both.... If it were your tank, how would you attack this? I feel more confident that it is, at least in part, the chitinolytic disease.    I could remove the HOB and one of the sponge filter sponges. The sponge I can put into the smaller 5 gallon with the fish to keep it seasoned, while the HOB can simply be turned off. How long would I then wait on the oregano oil to work before adding the filter media’s back in? Hey, I just thought about Something.... I have some organic Greek  oregano growing right now in my herb garden. Would those leaves work, and can I add the leaves without killing the filter bacteria in the tank?  
    • jayc
      LOL. Did you read the article properly?🙁 Under the Disclaimer - who is the author?     The info I give you is much more up to date than these other sites who have taken a snapshot of the evolving field of treatment for shrimp diseases. I warned those websites, that they need to ensure they maintain the content, as I keep updating the Disease & Diagnostics post. But alas, they copy it once and never remember to return to update it. So our own Disease and Diagnostics post is the source and is actively maintained by me.  Carvacrol (aka Oregano oil) will treat bacteria of various types. Chitinolytic disease is just another form of bacteria. Oregano oil when added to food will treat bacteria internally. Oregano oil added to the water will treat bacteria externally, like on the shell/carapace, like in the case of Chitinolytic disease. But take caution with filter bacteria, as with any treatment for bacteria will also impact beneficial filter bacteria. You might want to remove half the media and keep in another tank, just in case. If you can get fresh Oregano leaves, add them into the tank and see if the shrimp will eat it. The Levamisole will work on external bacteria only. It would be very hard getting the shrimp to eat it to treat internal bacteria infections.
