Welcome to ebiGarden!  I will be blogging about my experiences keeping freshwater shrimp.  "Ebi" is Japanese for "shrimp," and Japan is where the popular Red Bee/Crystal Red Shrimp was first selectively bred.  The shrimp hobby has expanded internationally and continues to grow every year with exciting new shrimp.

I first started with Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina heteropoda var. red) in 2008 and quickly expanded to other varieties.  To date I have kept: Red and Black Bees (Caridina cantonensis); Super Tigers,  Orange Eye Blue Tigers, and Black Tigers (Caridina cantonensis); Cardinals (Caridina dennerli); Harlequins (Caridina woltereckae); Blue Pearls (Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. blue); and Snowballs (Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. white).
