    Default Sulawesi granite shrimp

    just got some of these amazing shrimp from summitmicrofarm
    I will upload pictures another time but for now anybody else keep these, any info on them I have several berried females with nice lime green-minty green eggs but I haven't seen any babies which must be tiny btw because adults are probably 2cm max

    Nice....

    I'm currently also researching and experimenting Sulawesi shrimp environment, but not keeping them as do not have any more space. May get my friends to try out my newly developed substrate and salt mix.

    sorry took a break from the Internet
    they could be Caridina sarasinorum but I do not know if this is correct or if they have been properly described.
    they are hardier than cherries, I lost all of my cardinals in a total parameter crash but these guys are just fine...
