Hillary Esdaile has put together a nice chart depicting the variations of Caridina cantonensis. She was kind enough to give permission for me to share this work. Check out her other amazing work at rah-bop.

Chris Lukhaup of the Crustahunter team reports on Facebook today that Neocaridina heteropoda, the species consisting of the "Red Cherry Shrimp" and other popular variants, has been reclassified as Neocaridina davidi. Discussions on the post indicate there is a paper on the change that is circulating and more details will soon be shared in an upcoming edition of the magazine Caridina, as well as in a new shrimp book. Interesting how things change!

Here is a nice video from Aquarium Design Group's (ADG) trip to the 2012 Aqua Design Amano (ADA) Nature Aquarium Party in Japan. ADG is one of the authorized distributors of ADA products in the United States and where I usually get Aqua Soil for my shrimp tanks. Check out the video and links for more information on ADG.
