Recommended Posts

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 LOVE the Velvet blue you have.  Beautiful specimen!

      It's my first time guys!  I got these as my first shrimp, they were berried within 2 days and I had to squeal this morning when I woke up to babies!  So far I count 13.  I had 2 berried females so I know there's more...  They are orange cherries 😄

      As helpful as pictures are I was wondering if there is a written description of the different colour varieties, much like what would be for say a show dog where desired criteria must be met in order for it to be grand champion worthy or pet quality. I ask because I am seeing many people selling "blue dreams" for example but there seems to be a great deal of difference with regards to darkness of the blue or clarity of the blue. And many of the sellers are either correctly claiming the shrimp are high grade or wrongly duping ( Not all but some and some could be doing it by accident too from not having a definitive accurate description to go by) new buyers who go on to breed said shrimp and sell on the offspring guessing they are high grade because they purchased high grade.

      The best write up on CPD's I've come across (and I've been trying to read everything I can find on them). Fantastic photos too. From the first time I read about and watched CPD's online I wanted some with a clear intent to breed them. It took me over 6 months to find some CPDs in a LFS to purchase (could have got some shipped earlier, but hated the idea of them not surviving as they are not cheap in Australia). Finally I found and bought 20 less than a week ago. Fitted right in with my community tank, colour improving daily. A tank to house them in is maturing and intend to pick out a few to see if they will breed there to start with. Plan is to get breeding tanks set-up soon and looking forward to trying some of the methods explained pretty clearly in this article. Hope I remember to come back here and share my experience. Thanks S1l3nt!
