    Well now that I'm done acquiring various varieties of shrimp (or so I assure my significant other lol) here are some pictures of them all :) Bear with me as these are taken with a camera phone and I'm a poor photographer in general.

    I'll start with the more basic varieties and go from there

    Sakura Red

    Fire Red

    Painted Fire Red

    Orange Pumpkin


    Blue Pearl

    Dream Blue Velvet


    Sulawesi Cardinal - The pictures don't do these shrimp justice at all. They're my favorite of the group by far.

    are the dream blue velvet like what stores call blueberry or blue cherry shrimp?
  3. EricVFishlore VIPMember

    I don't think so. There are a ton of names for very similarly colored shrimp but I'm under the impression that the blueberry shrimp are caridina while with the exception of the cardinals all of mine are neocaridina. For the sake of this thread I merely listed them under the same name I purchased them as. :)

    Wow those cardinals are very nice! They remind me of the Fire Red Cleaner Shrimp

    When you're not looking at them through the lens of my poor photography the are a bright wine red with bright light blue/white spots along the body.

    The front two pairs of legs are also bright white although that doesnt show well in the picture.

    Ooooo I will likely be looking at getting some of the blue dream velvets when you have them, I also love the cardinal but I'm not sure if I will be able to make the water just right and I'd want a whole other tank for them. I know those are pretty pricey so I will probably not get those for a long time lol.

    I just ordered my blue dreams, would deffinately be interested in getting some later this year to keep the gene pool strong!
    Yours look great, what colour substrate do you keep them on?
  9. EricVFishlore VIPMember

    Bare glass :)

    Their colour is really nice, I'm afraid mine will get lost in the black substrate when I get them, at least until their numbers increase.
