Wow! That shrimp is the bluest I have ever seen. What species is it?

If it's a Blue Velvet, I believe it's a colour morph of a regular red cherry shrimp (neocaridina heteropoda). They sell them locally and I'm considering getting some for myself. Beautiful shrimp.

Nah, they are really easy to keep. They also don't require brackish water to spawn successfully. I believe they stay slightly smaller than RCS but they are just as prolific. Yes, I do keep them in a species-only tank.
