I got some "Orange Dwarf Shrimp" as what the supplier was calling them. Has anyone came across this common name before? I don't know what the latin name is and from the brief google search I did the other day it came up with
Orange Shrimp
I don't think it's these as they're not as colourful (multi coloured) as the photo. I will do more searching myself but thought someone on here may know what they are.
Sorry, I know i need a photo of mine for you but i have the wrong light on right now and it's not bright enough. Arcadia Arcpod lights lol /ph34r.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":ph34r:" border="0" alt="ph34r.gif" />
They're about the same price as red cherry shrimp if thats any help. I'll swap the lights about to get a pic before anyone shouts but might not be tonight /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

It's not Neocaridina heteropoda var. yellow is it Richy? Pier had some in the other week and they looked more orangey than the one in this pic, hence the suggestion...

I'm guessing they are a form of Neocaridina sp but i'll have to get a photo later today /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
I have 10 of them /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

It's hard to say if the photo Matt posted is the same as it might be ready to "molt/shed" Many shrimps look alot paler if they've just shed/molted as they're hardening up again. Not the best terminology but you'll know what I mean lol.
Well, been trying to get some photo's and instead of swapping lights around I went out and bought a triphosphor tube instead of the standard Arcpod tube. One problem, I forgot to check the kelvin ratings /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> The tube I got only has a 6500k so the tank now looks pretty yellowy, same as the bloody shrimps /angry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" /> My fault /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />
Keith, I'll try and get a decent pic soon. I'll pm you details later /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

No problem Keith /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I'll be honest, I got my 10 when they first came in and picked the brightest, naturally /ph34r.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":ph34r:" border="0" alt="ph34r.gif" />
Next time make it a day when i'm available and I'll pop along and meet you /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />
I have noticed they're not a greedy for cucumber like the bee's, red cherries and red crystals but i'm sure they'll catch on quick /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Can't go wrong with algae pellets and flake /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Now then folk,
I got 4 orange shrimp today ,they look like Neocaridina sp. ,the offer was for 5 but I also recieved a Bee shrimp and a Cherry LoL. One of the shrimp was noticably more brighter than the others, even after settling in, it is female as are 2 of the others , 2 of the females have sadles so I hope the Cherry had nowt to do with them LoL. Has any one got young yet !
Will my Orange and Green get on together now the 12th night has passed !! LoL
All the best,
G.J.

I have about 3 with berries but haven't noticed any youngsters yet. I have a feeling I won't as I now have well over 40 albino Bn's babies in there /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />
I'd definatly move the red cherry to another tank if you can "just incase" /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Now then Richy,
Shrimp are the new hoodies on the steet so I'd be putting my bristles in a seperate tank LoL .
I flipped the Cherry straight into a Cherry tank , hope your Orange are as proliferate as the greens (and the Cherries ).
All ther best bud,
G.J.

i've got no berried up at the mo, but they are all doing very well. i'm still not sure what species they are so i'm waiting to see what happens when i do get a berried female.
i picked up some neocaridina palmata today from maidenhead aquatics near York (going to a show).
they are a superb looking shrimp and a few are berried.i'll start a new thread when i get some pic.
glad you moved the cherries John as i have a feeling the orange are just another colour form of he cherry.

This tank was origionally setup for the BN's but when it went pear shaped I got the yellow shrimps instead and a couple of weeks later the Bn's delivered grrrrrr /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />
I'm trying to sort out a couple of other setups right now and running out of space in an upper flat /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> I think if I can get the extra info i'm looking for, for bamboo shrimps then they'll have higher priority than these for now /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
Good luck anyway /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> They are the same species as red cherries I think so should be the same for breeding in theory /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

I'm still unsure myself but i'm a relitive noob to alot of shrimps from the norm of bee's, cherry's, crystal reds/blacks, amano's etc Some of them could of been interbred somewhere along the line even before the wholsalers got them or shop? Wholesaler sold them as dwarf orange shimp but I think otherwise, they're not like Matt's photo.

Boyneburn, yes they look very similar but still unsure right now /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />
