This little guy - or maybe its parents, i dont really know - once came to me as an amano shrimp. Sometimes they are called dwarf amanos in the pet shop. Why? Because the customer really dont know and even dont care. And so was i. I thougt having an ideal algae eater in a short form.
Well, its indead a good algae eater, but its a neocaridina. The wild form of the classic red cherry shrimp, i guess. Also often called algae shrimp. The interesting thing is, it was nearly cristal clear and shiny colored, when i bought it. As i put it in another tank, more then 2 years later, where mostly my dark blue tiger shrimps live, it slowly turned its color to almost black. Nice, isnt it? 😊 #aquascape #aquascaping #aquascaper #natureaquarium #nanoaquarium #nanocube #aquariumhobby #shrimptank #dwarfshrimp #neocaridina #algaeshrimp
