    Hi all,

    I've just added 3 Taiwanese Blue Velvet shrimp into my planted tank and was just wondering if anyone has any weblinks to further information about them? I can't seem to find much at all!

    I'm led to believe they are a Neocaridina sp. similar to cherry shrimp. :?:

    Hi Neil,

    Here's a few pics, sorry the quality isn't perfect! They look a bit more blue than the photos show, especially under the lights near the top of the tank,

    Top image is a female (with eggs). The other two shrimp are smaller and more blue so possibly both males?
