I'm new to shrimp keeping and in looking at all the pictures I can find on the web distinguishing male and female neocaridina shrimp, I'm still having trouble with a few in my tank that look not quite definitely either to my untrained eyes. What do you think of this one? It used to look more male and in the last few days it's looking more female to me...

I’m no expert and this is just an opinion, but it looks make to me based on the angle of the tail.

Looks like a young female to me, I use the second row of scales in as large round and the two middle atena short that the other two. Also looks like a saddle starting on the back.

Thank you all! She's most definitely a female. Her saddle has gotten bigger since I posted and is now clearly defined.
