    Default red tigers!

    just bought some red tigers, I should have them by Tuesday-Wednesday!
    I'm so freaking excited! these are one of my absolute favorite types of shrimp
    so any input on tempature, ph, gh, kh will be appreciated!
    and can they be kept with Paracaridina Sp. Blue Bee, without interbreeding?
    thanks

    I see some up for sale on AB but no pictures !
    Goggling shows quite a diversity on coloration.
    I am interested in them but cant buy sight unseen
    I have an open tank and trying to decide on a shrimp for it .

    I bought the ones on ab... I'm really excited they will be here on Wednesday!!! I only bought them without having a picture because of the sellers 100% positive feedback from all of his auctions... but I did get an emailed photo of them after...
    by the fall I should have some up on AB for a very decent amount, better than what I bought them for!

    I have been looking at the Orange tigers . As I love the orange shrimp I have ( very good color )
    But all the orange tigers I see have NO stripes ? How can a tiger have no stripes ?
    It's like a zebra with no stripes , it's just a white horse ????

    they are not the same species I don't think, but you could cross them orange to wild/super tiger and cross back to either orange or normal tiger til you get the desired effect.
    but I believe shrimp being sold as "orange tiger" are mostly Caridina Serrata
