Orange sakura shrimp close ups
I would like to share several close up photos of my orange sakura shrimps. Their scientific name is neocaridina davidi var ‘orange’ shrimps.
These shrimps are easy to keep and, in fact, they are color morph or well-known cherry shrimp. I have seen two color strains of orange shrimps. Some of them are more reddish and they are usually called pumpkin shrimps. Mine are different, they are closer to yellow. Females usually develop nice orange coloration with age. At the same time, males are quite orange and not yellow right from the beginning.
I keep these shrimps in tap water and do not use anything special for them.
Check out some photos below:
I keep these guys in a small 10-gallon tank. Nevertheless, their colony is doing well and I’m currently selling these orange shrimps.
