    Maybe you should also name the other shrimp-types the species can -or maybe can- cross-breed with!
    For example Tiger Shrim and Crystal Red.
    So that you easily can see what you shouldn't do!

    Dear Acesk,

    I'm compiling my own list based on my experience in keeping them. Not the most comprehensive, but I'm working on it.

    Sorry this here is out of the ordinary, I'm still new and can't start new topics.

    A few months ago I found a discrepancy between shrimpcrabsandcrayfish and wirbellose.

    The shrimp in question goes by the common name of Chameleon Shrimp or Chamäleongarnele. The Shrimpcrabsandcrayfish has that shrimp under the scientific name, Macrobrachium pilimanus, while the German wirbellose site has Macrobrachium cf. scabriculum. From the excellent photographs on both web sites, it's clearly the same species, or a subspecies, which would not, by my understanding, have a completely different species name.

    Any help determining the correct scientific name would be greatly appreciated. I plan on adding this shrimp species to other Macrobrachium shrimp species that I am currently breeding, but want to have the correct setup. One site lists them as requiring salt water to mature the larva, the other does not.

    Thanks!
