I've seen people selling Aura Blue hybrids in Au - are they really here??  Can anyone confirm?

Hi @Kaylenna, the Aura blue tigers are actually Tupfel shrimp/ Caridina Serrata. I have not seen the green apple or Aura blue available here yet.

Perhaps it's incorrectly named or there are 2 species sharing the name, but...

I've seen it as Caridina cf cantonesis other places too, and yes I know the thing about "cantonesis" being renamed/misnamed etc.

I've tried to search for definitive info, but the scientific names of shrimps appear not to be a top priority for most people, especially those with access to genetic sequencing gear.  If you have some sort of confirmation, please share.

Aura blue are caridina cantonensis not cf. cantonensis, tupfel are found in a different location. Shrimp are not described using genetics but physical traits.

      I have recently been altering my TDS and GH to get them to where I wanted to be on my recently set up tank. It was GH3.5-4 TDS 150, it is now GH4.5 and TDS 160 and the colours are so much better, blue especially, see photo. As JayC says check water parameters and maybe VERY gradually increase GH/TDS (by a one  TDS per day at most, is what I did and had no dead shrimp) if it is at the lower end of the recommended parameters. I am a not an expert/professional though! I increased the TDS by adding 1 drop of remineraliser each time (with the remineraliser I use it increases TDS about 25/litre/drop (GH+1/litre/drop), and my tank has 28 litres of water in it. I saw this nice blue one today, not seen one like this in my tank before. Picture very low quality as it is such a small one at the moment, hope it survives?

      Very easy to fill. No funnel needed. The hole is as show in the picture, the black patch is the hole, yes.  That bottle is 4 Litres.

      Shrimp can loose colour if the water parameters are not right. You should test all your water parameters now and make sure that they are suited to the shrimp type. The pictured shrimp is a Taiwan bee, so make sure the pH, KH, GH, TDS and Temp are close to their requirements.
