Well, the first question is what is this shrimp?
The price is : a load of respect . Have fun !!
Black tiger shrimp - Caridina cf Cantonensis sp. black tiger
Are you sure about that?? I saw pictures of black tiger shrimp but having orange eyes and no bluish spot and also no white "moustache"

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"
not black tiger.
Sulawesi variety. Sulawesi Cardinal shrimp; Caridina "cardinal
+1 Shadow Mac. It is Caridina sp. "Cardinal"
Seems like the load of respect goes to everyone who commented this thread
Hi Ohly, The first Q And now you have the name of the stunning looking shrimp The second Q Is ?? Jumping the gun a bit But would it be what is the plant I think it the moss Fissidens fontanus as a ground cover plant Stunning moss likes a bit more light than other mosses but looks fab Ho posting at the same time
What are the fissidens fontanus requirement ?
I mean what did you experience with this moss?
Hi Ohly, It one i have yet to try But i like the look of this moss I will try it this year If i can will try it in a Wabi-Kusa If not will be in my upcoming Cube And see how it grows
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 !!
Anyway im only planning a new tank for the mid summer , or when I'll move to my apartment : P because like you I'm at my parents so they accepted a tank but if it was in the basement
Are these shrimp difficult??
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
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.
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
