Some photos I snapped on my phone of a couple of berried Sulawesi species. These are not the typical species you see and I got a few of them that hitchhiked along on my last import a couple months ago. 7dafe2c4903908740818970144ce6406.jpgec061b2c36001c50086019885507d204.jpg82d917bdf328317ace7196592e0c36de.jpgff0dac0ddc63cf443d54703b0994f509.jpg9ae3a92754fed045779f7edee4dbeb24.jpg

Not really sure what they are. Once I get more of them I hope to be able to identify them. I have to spent to much time trying to figure it out though

Can you contact the sender? for further info send pics? I'd love to get a few shrimplets when you accumulate enough as I have the perfect well water out of the sink for these...

O.K. so I did some digging around and found the first one,

It's "Caridina loehae" from the "Malili lake" system, Temp 29.7c

The second one? I'd say your transiant shrimps were by-catches and went along for whole the ride all the way to the states! What did you order originally anyways???

For some great info, try this site

I used to have a large picture list of all the different types of Sulawesi available with their non-latin names.....lost it when I moved.

 

I found this article which shows where they come from and the latin name for them and some pictures too.  Its a long article (110 pages) but

if you just scroll down to the identification part you can see the pics there and yours are on the list.

Hope this helps.

 

second pic is a 

Caridina holthuisi

 

last one is a C.Loehae  I believe its also called Golden Sunset.

 

Here is a much better explaination and pictures of each one.  Just click on each name to see the pic and details.
