    I have already been on that website. I guess I will keep it in a jar of water with something to land on out of the water to see what happens. I can't set it free, it is winter here and it wouldn't survive. It was in a plastic cup at my lfs so it should be ok with clean, cool water. Definately not a shrimp larvae though, right?????Please keep posting opinions though.

    After searching all day, I'm thinking that they may be Caridina cf. propinqua. They do not look like Neocaridina sp. Orange when I search for them. What do you think???

    I am pretty sure it is the Neocaridina sp. Orange (english name) The proper and aptly german name is Neocaridina sp. "mandarine"

    Search under that name and you will find the same as yours... I sell them as well...

    Caridina cf. propinqua are brackwater shrimp and also need salt to molt properly as they are proper brackwater shrimp.... they are near as impossible to breed.

    If you have more than one and a mix of males & females it will be pretty easy to identify - if they breed quite quickly they will be the Neocaridina if they don't breed at all then the Caridina ;) ;) :)

    You may be right. I went back and bought 2 more. I also bought 2 clear ones that look exactly the same except no orange. I hope you are right, that way they will breed for me if I got male and female. As for the worm, who knows. I don't know if I have a male and a female though. Wherever they got them from might have only sold one sex to prevent breeding competition in my area. I wonder if I could get a pair of yours fishalicious. Then I would be able to compare them and see if they all breed together. What do you think?

    That would be an idea unfortunately I live in Europe

    Do the white ones look exactely the same? And are they slightly see through or are the more proper white all over?

    OK. scratch that. Upon looking further it seems that the clear ones have a different shaped head. Their eyes poke out of the top and are larger that the orange shrimp.
