These are a wild type tiger shrimp from Laos but ID on these are a bit of a mystery. Based on what we can tell they are very similar (or could be) what the Germans call "Tupfel Shrimps" aka the wild form of Tangerine Tigers & Aura Blue Tigers (Caridina Serrata). Others have suggest that these are C.cantonensis. Regardless they are a great looking wild type tiger shrimps with a clear bodies with a spotted tiger pattern - most are clear, while some have a reddish or light blue hue.

SKA Pure Black Line - Been working on these guys for the past couple years; they have nice thick shell and we got them to the point where most of the offsprings look very similar to their parents (no-entry pattern).

SKA Japanese Black Bee Shrimps - These are F1's from the Benibachi Japanese Black Bee shrimps (the adults in the photos) we imported last year.   This line is still very young and been throwing out a variety of different patterns including mosura

Wow those Laos mountain shrimp and galaxies look amazing! Hope they make their way to the states some day. Just curious what are the water parameters of those two shrimp?


Wild caught tigers generally like slightly acidic, soft water similar to bee shrimps as long as the PH is not too low.  They do like lower temperatures though, so in line with other tiger shrimps


ph: 6.4 ~ 6.8

gh: 3-6

kh: 0-1

temp: ~ 22C
