Aussie shrimp

I have found a fantastic Australian supplier who mainly does native plants, but also has a few native inverts and fish. I got 3 different species of shrimp, they are adorable! The first is Caridina gracilirostris, only grows to 1.5cm! Second is Caridina longistrostris, grows to about 3.5cm, and the third he's only collected quite recently and hasn't got identified yet. Ooh, mystery shrimp! I like the third the best, it's stunning - and I believe it is holding eggs, so we should have more soon

(For anyone interested, the supplier is AQUAGREEN, run by Dave - http://www.aquagreen.com.au)

Also, a pic that I love aesthetically for some reason - a longistrostris swimming up against the glass, next to a little ramshorn snail, with my camera lens in the reflection!


50gal planted - yoyo loaches, BNs, odessa barbs, giant danios
33gal planted - praecox rainbows, gold ram, bolivian rams, sparkling gouramis, licorice gouramis, lots of shrimp
2 x 5gal planted - bettas
