Hybrid Caridina question


Recommended Posts

Over the past 4 years or so, I’ve kept shrimp. About 2 years ago, I ventured into the Caridinas and purchased an assortment of beautiful, high quality shrimp from a bunch of different places online and in Los Angeles where I live. I kept them separated but at some point I got busy and put them all in a tank together rather than taking care of a bunch of tanks.They have bred multiple generations and I let the tank go fairly wild without watching them so now I have no idea what these shrimp hybrids are!


I have had all the Taiwan Bee varieties— BB, Pandas, KK, etc. and some high grade CRS and CBS, a yellow KK, some all white ones (can’t remember the name!) and several spectacular pintos. I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY TIGERS! I’m assuming these yellow tiger-esque shrimp came from the pinto or the ykk (or both!! I thought I saw them mating at one point last year.) I think the only shrimp with spider legs that I’ve had were those gorgeous pintos. The shrimp in the first photo is currently berried and I have no idea who the father is…


What do you think? What combo might these yellow tigery shrimp be? I’m attaching pics of some of the shrimp I have or have had in the past few years in that tank that are possibly part of the genetics. It put some upside down for some reason.
