    Going by some shrimps you could have 100+ and no two exactly the same.

    Chameleon are a very good example of that.

    It could also be a breeding or location variety who knows.

    A speciaity international Shrimp forum might give you a better answer

    Its one of those "Could be"

    Isn't the correct name for the shrimp Caridina Dennerli ? I used to have a tank full of those beautie Sulawesi shrimps.
    Can't help you on the moss though :)

    The moss is definitely fissiden fontanus

    Do you intend to sell some of your sulawesi's in the future?

    If I still had some I would. But hence the previous post, "I used to have a tank full of those beauties".
    I kinda had some discussions with my mother and I had to remove half of my fish tanks in the house.
    Now I have only 3 tanks left, the rest I have sold to friends like 8 months ago or something.
    Sorry to disappoint you Ohly :(
    If I ever decide to breed with them again you'll be the first to know !! :)

    LOL, my mother was nicer, I had 5 tanks in my bedroom and 2 in the living room.
    Then she said, half of it needs to go, so I kept the 3 biggest ones. 60 liters in the living room, 130 liter reef and 120 liter axolotl tank in the bedroom :)

    Yes I find them quite difficult, at least compared to normal caridina and neocarida species, especially to get the correct parameters was the most difficult for me.
    I had most success with parameters around this:
    PH: 8 never lower than 7.5
    GH: 3
    KH: 3
    NO2: 0 or at least as close to zero as possible
    NO3: 0 or at least as close to zero as possible

    and no other tank mates. If you want those nice tylomelania snails in the same tank, make sure the tank is big enough.
    Cause I busted my snails accidently eating a shrimp in a small 30 liter nano tank. These shrimps have those long antennas (don't know correct English term :) ) and my snails accidently started chewing on these when they crossed its path. Most of the times the shrimps got away, but I saw him eating a shrimp once. It's just when the shrimps accidently put their antennas in front of the snails.

    Grts, Toothloose

    I don't know it either
    Last time I mentioned the antennas, I called them moustache!

    BTW I'm French Canadian, since you are from Belgium, maybe you speak French too :)

    My English is a lot better than my French, but I can manage. Lots of my fish come from a store in the other half of Belgium where they speak French. So I'm still practicing.
    As far as I know the parameters are the most important thing for these shrimps.
    Also a inverted omsose installation will help a lot for maintaining the water parameters
