Hi Renč,
I never heart of most of these names. I'm a bi skeptical if all of them are real.

The "Neocaridina sp. (zebra shrimp) 'india' " should be Caridina cf. babaulti spp. 'stripes' and looks like this:


The name "Neocaridina sp. (rocket shrimp)" is a synonym for Caridina gracilirostris de Man, 1892 which we normally call mosquito or red nose shrimp or Nashorngarnele in German. It looks like this:


The "Neocaridina sp. (blue shrimp)" should be another subspecies or just a bluish variant of Neocaridina denticulata sinsenis. The most popular color variant of this species is the cherry shrimp.

The other names I never heart before. I guess some are just trivially-names given by retailers and/or LFSs.

beste Grüße :p
