  1. Default Shrimp Identification

    I picked these guys up at my lfs today. They had them labeled as Orange Algea Eating Shrimp. I looked them up on the internet and all I can come up with is Orange Bee Shrimp. They are a little over an inch long. Is that what these guys are? Also, how do you tell the difference between a male and a female? And there appears to be a hairy, yellow worm looking larva on a plant that they came with, is it a baby?

    A pic of the worm will help.

    Shape looks like an amano shrimp. I just posted about the blue one I brought home last night. One post said that species comes in just about any color, so it seems like an orange morph of an amano shrimp (algae eating shrimp).

    It's a Neocaridina sp. Orange - should be kept in a group of at least 10 - they are not very often seen in the market so you are one lucky fishkeeper The females have saddles on their back and males have less color and stay smaller... they have the same care and breeding as Cherry Shrimp

    The Orange Bee Shrimp has blackish stripes on it so it is def the above one.

    The Amano shrimp is a Caridina so they are not connected in any way...

    Shrimp babies are perfectly formed little tiny shrimp and don't resemble a worm - sounds like it might be planaria.

    I don't think it's planaria. It looks like a yellow caterpillar, only under water. It came on one of the plants that was in the cup with one of my shrimp. I will try to get a picture.
