    Default Does anyone know what kind of shrimps those are?

    I bought some months ago two kinds of shrimps. Shop keeper told me that first is Caridina sp. orange and second one is Neocaridina sp. black algae. Does that kind of shrimp exists?

    Hi Andryk,
    Your first pic is showing Caridina thambipillai, sold as "Orange Shrimp" or "Sunkist Shrimp". Less colored specimens of this species will be also sold "Malayan Multicolored Shrimp". I am not quit sure about the species on your second pic. Could be Neocaridina palmata but morphological characters of this species could not be seen on your pic.
    Cheers
    Werner
