Rajiv Ji, sujoy da has a very good collection of them :) You can check them out. And true they are beauty!!!


Sujoy never discloses his collection. :lol: I know that he have some native shrimps but he never invited for raid. Don't worry, I will sure visit his place to rob some shrimps.

Well Vijendra bulk of them are from the same genus which is cardina, so there is a high chance of cross-breeding!!
If you are not bothered about it then can go ahead and keep them in a single tank but to maintain proper line a species only tank is preferred.
And also some of them such as red nose shrimp requires brackish water to develop the larva so no chance of cross-breeding :)

Due to cross breeding between RCS and Indian Rainbow shrimps, now I have some milky white shrimps. Now I trying to keep these white shrimp in another tank. I think after some more generations, they will be pure white.
