    Question Sulawesi Shrimp Offspring to be Indetified

    Hi all,

    I have a Sulawesi shrimp tank that contains Cardinal and Harlequin. However, recently I found a Shrimp offspring that does not look like any shrimps in my tank:

    I'm not sure sure is it a gene mutation, cross-breeding or sickness (unlikely as you can see how glossy the shell is and it is like this since borned). Does anyone encounter this before?

    Thats really weird, looks no way like a Sulawesi shrimp if you ask me. No other way it could end up in your tank? I like an orange shrimp though, would be a nice form.

    Yeah, really weird. It's color and shape looks like a Neo but it's hand move at very fast speed like a cardinal.

    Maybe it stuck in the net when I was scooping trimmed leaf from Neo tank and after that it got transfer to the Sulawesi Tank. However, I don't have any orange Neo. This is really a mystery.

    I will post it's picture again after it grows up.

    Hi Kloudie,

    Just tell the taxi driver "Goldfish Street". They will know where. It is entire street of aquatic shops.

    For the exact address, see below:

    English: Tung Choi Street (Kam Yu Kai = Goldfish Street), Mongkok, Kowloon
    Cantonese: 香港九龍旺角通菜街 (金魚街)

    You can see the map here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Tu...2c0621daaea280
