    Really impressive the picture of C. spongicola... I thought can not keep in aquarium due to its special life way into the freshwater sponge....

    Hi Chris,
    welcome to ShrimpNow! It's nice to see you here, too.

    Thank you for showing us these beautiful shrimps! I would love to keep some of them. Are there any information available about their biotopes and special requirements? It's useless to import shrimps which are for example specialised in living inside of freshwater sponges and which won't feed on artificial food nor breed.

    BTW, I edited your post. It was just advertisement for your website, which can be considered as a commercial website, so it's against our rules. There were already complains about your post. That's the reason why I added some of the pictures of the mentioned shrimps. It will safe our members some time looking for them on your website. If they still want to see the rest of them, I guess they are more than willing to visit your site.

    Best regards

    Robert

    They are really impressive, without selective breeding, they are already so beautiful.

    I was told that they need certain water parameter, that is not something an average hobbyists can achieve. Although in nature, they can breed in freshwater since they can be found in closed lake, their fries need special diets.

    Well, I think for now, these species of shrimps are just good for photo taking, until someone has figured out how to keep and breed them in captivity.

    Hi Chris,
    from which species do you have juveniles? Can you tell us something about their size, sexual dimorphism, the number of eggs etc. ?

    Chris, I did not consider your post as advertisement but I was told that it can be considered as advertisement. That's why I added the mentioned pictures. Now it's about pictures of shrimps from Sulawesi, not just about your amazing website (with pictures of shrimps from Sulawesi).

    Best regards

    Robert

    Thank for letting us know, which species is that, do the adult or fries need special food?

    Silane, i cant tell exactly from what species i have the juveniles because i had them all in one tank and at least 5 species had eggs. MOST OF THESE SPECIES ARE UNDESCRIBED ( pers. comunication Kristina v. Rintelen/
    Humbold Museum Berlin). Kristina is working on a revision of these shrimps at the momet so we will know more in the next future.
    In my tank the shrimps feed normal flakes..i dont feed them special food.
    CHEERS
