Can someone identify what kind of shrimp is this? Is it a caridina green babaulti, neocaridina davidi, or what? Thank you.

Picture quality isn't that great, but it looks like my snowball shrimp to me.

Edit:: Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. white <- that's what google told me the scientific name was, since that's what you were asking for.

Here are two more pictures. The water is tainted by the indian almond leaces, but just to clarify, the shrimps have a slight green tint.

P.s. ignore the tiger shrimp in the picture, I already recognize them

They don't look like snowball shrimp in those pictures, and if they're tinted green I'm going to say it was just the lighting of the first lol. Not sure what they are then o_O

Its difficult to show the color because I should use the flash, but it reflects on the glass...

They look similar to some pictures I've seen of amanos, but I've never actually seen an amano in person. I honestly have no clue what they could be, I'm very interested though!

That looks exactly like an Amano I bought recently. At least that is what the LFS sold it to me as. He is very active. I always see him cruising around tank.

I've had amanos and this is most probably not an amano, even though looks a lot like them...

Yes, that's what they told me. Now they said that in May the RCS will grow and I can have them then. Guess I'll wait some more.

In the meantime I've lost only two in two days. Most of them are active and eating and if I switch on the light at night I can see them all around. Also you can see many babies from the barren female that released them yesterday. So I hope this time they will survive.

Not that it really matters, but do you mean a berried female? Barren is usually used to mean someone/something is infertile.
Sorry, grammar/spelling/and proper word use is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Sorry, my mistake. I've used that word wrongly. What I meant is "gravid". One of the shrimps in the bag had eggs and she released them (the babies) the next day in the tank.

They are so beautiful. Let us know if you figure out what they are! Thanks
