ShrimpSA Posted October 26, 2015 Report Share Posted October 26, 2015 Good day, I am from South Africa. Here it is a grey area to keep shrimps. You are not allowed to trade or sell shrimps but there is no law stating that you can't keep them. I managed to get myself some shrimps but because of the laws it is hard to find people that know shrimp as not many people here have them. I bought 10, 5 have saddles which as far I understand are definite females, 2 more look like females and 3 are males. I haven't bred them yet so I can ''cancel out'' some species as I do not know if they have a larvae stage or not. I first heard that they are ghost shrimp, but they do not have those prominent humps on their backs like ghost shrips(well at least the pictures I can find online. I then though they might be Neocaridina heteropoda "wild" but I am still not 100% sure. I have only had them for a few days now. Attached are a few pics I took when I just got them and right after I put them in their tank. Also as can be seen the one in the glass container has a light yellow color but it its still transparent like the others. If I could have your inputs it will be greatly appreciated. If any other pics are required I will gladly take some more. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
