Have this shrimp for quite awhile. Still in the process of refining them. Hope you like it!:D:D

Very nice. Would you call that a Fire Engine Red? Or is it a basic Sakura?

It doesn't look like Sakura or Fire Red, a mutate from there. The body is very close to transparent whereas Sakura & Fire Red are more or less opaque.

When under strong light, it looked like luminous red.

Very nice shrimp. I have one red cherry that has that thick but transparent red color on her back, it's almost as bright as yours though not quite. And its doesn't cover her all either. I've been hoping to breed up some nice ones from her, as the rest of my RCS colony is pretty poor colored.

OK, so that's what's different.

I have 00's of RCS, but only use them as fish food - been concentrating on CR shrimp. Since visiting here recently, I have come to appreciate their potential for variation. I'm now going to selectively breed from them. This is something else to look out for.

It looks like the mutation makes the shell thinner, not sure why. This is extremely cool, do they breed well? And is their lifespan the same?
The reason I ask is to find out what is causing the thinner shell, I suspect something with calcium. Oh and if it does breed do all the offspring look like this or only a few?

Any name ideas?

I have 3 of these shrimps out from the whole batch. This is the most extreme and perfect piece that I got. This female didn't breed well, dropped eggs twice. Currently, she is still in pregnant for the 3rd time. However, I managed to get some offsprings from the other parents, about 8mm now. The color will get more intense as it grows more mature. Hopefully, I could find some gems amongst them.

Awe, than calcium might be the problem. They might have a calcium difiency or the proteins coded for using calcium to make the shell may have changed, something along those lines. This could be why she's dropping her eggs, but hopefully not. I'd say the mutation might affect breeding since you said that she's the most extreme and she's the one dropping her eggs. Keep those little ones alive, I can't wait to see the next generation :D

Nice picture by the way

Very nice red. :)
Thanks.

Male could also be non productive too. Therefore, there is nothing to be pity for.

True, but for backcrossing is that better. :D

wow! what a nice coloured shrimp! congratulations! How do you do the selection, just more intense couloured inverts, in base of their legs colour...?
Whatever it is, no doubt that you're doing a good job!

A very nice shrimp with a new color density - hopefully, you can build up a small group with it! Looks like 2011 will be the year of new and beautiful neocardina :)

Agreed, Neocaridina is on a roll this year! This is my favorite breed so far though!

This species may take at least 2 generations to refine their color tone as the female I had shown. The juveniles from the other female have shown similar characteristics but the color are still not there yet.

Yea I'd say youare going to need to make a few generations until you reach that color again

Too bad, I lost the pregnant female after my posting a few day later.
Recently, I found another extreme one in my tank. Still trying to breed and get some specimen amongst them.

It appeared after 2 gens that you have given me.

Thank, I wish too. Not all will turn out this color.
