      The gold back neocaridina shrimp is just as the name implies. It has a bright golden stripe that goes from head to tail on a yellow body. A beautiful shrimp.

      This little guy is my only caridina shrimp variety and I got it in with a shipment with some neocardinas. It is a crystal red shrimp and I am seeing if it survives before I get any more. Cute little guy.

      Just got these neocaridina shrimp in today. They are called Red Riding Hood. I wonder why? Maybe because their torso and tail are clear but their heads are red? they are like Red Rili but their tails are not red. The great thing is also that I ordered 10 shrimp, but one must have been berried because there were lots of babies in the bag, maybe 15-20. So little they are hard to see with just the naked eye. These shrimp are only about an inch long, so you can imagine how tiny the newly hatched babies are.

      Ordered a new variety (color) of neocaridina shrimp today. Won’t get them until after the first of the year because shipping companies are not reliable this time of year. These are called blood orange, an orange color with reddish tint. Also ordered some blue carbon rili, a black shrimp with a light blue middle. They should come after the first of the year also. I’m

      So, you must have separate tanks for each of these varieties to keep the lines clean … how many tanks do you have now? Would love to see full tank/fishroom photos!

      I have 36 tanks of various sizes, so that I do not mix colors. If you mix colors of neocaridina you do not get a blend like in paints, rather you get mostly wilds, which are mostly browns, clear and an occasionally a colored shrimp. When you mix yellow and blue paint you would get green. If you breed a blue and yellow shrimp you get brown.

      Got several varieties of shrimp in last week that I am acclimating, many of which are additions to some that I already have. Here is the orange rili variety.

      I really need to set up a shrimp tank at some point. We’ve tried to have some in other aquariums but eventually they die off.

      Hey Mike. Good to hear from you! How much snow do you have there?
      Most all fish will eat shrimp, or at least their babies. They need places to hide, but they are interesting little guys. Their lifespan only lasts about 1.5 years, so they will start breeding around four months old. Let me know if you want a to set up a shrimp tank.

      I am getting my "wet shed", my fish shed repaired to better keep my shrimp, fish and axolotls. The heaters I had n there could not keep the room warm enough during these severely cold nights so I go couple of bigger heaters. Also, at the bottom of one end of the shed, the paneling had started rotting so there was about a 2-5 inches of outside paneling where the cold air was coming into the room, making it even harder to heat, so we repaired it Later this year we will take off the rest of the outside paneling and insulate the wall and put up new paneling. To complete the job, the heaters use more electricity so within the next two weeks i am having a couple of more electrical wires ran from the breaker box to the shed. This should help all the way around and reduce the electric bill somewhat.

      I’ll definitely check with you if I decide to set up a shrimp tank. We tried a few of the red shrimp in my son’s nano tank with a few endler livebearers. I don’t think the fish bothered them but who knows. They only lived a few months.

      How are your Crystal Red caridinas doing? Are you keeping them in lower kH water than your neos? Lower temps?
      I also found a nice 10g chrome 60’s tank and am going to set it up for shrimp. I have 0 kH and gH tap water so I can adjust it to whatever suits the shrimp I choose - can’t decide though!

      Nice tank. I found a five gallon tank like that last year and I have used it ever since. I have painted fire red shrimp in it.
      My Crystal reds did not survive more than three months, so I changed it to a blue carbon rili tank.

      I am slowly replaces my aquarium lights with brighter lights. Makes the shrimp easier to see and to photograph.

      I have seen videos on YouTube where the guy is shown catching shrimp in his tank using a square net that did not collapse like most aquarium nets do. It came in today. It was a little smaller than I expected but I think it will be easier to catch a shrimp with it. It telescopes up to 20” also.

      Did you spot the four day old babies? That’s okay if you didn’t. Maybe this is easier as the baby is on the black part of the coral rock. Also, the second pic is of an adult with the same magnification close to the baby.
