Hi everyone!

There was no invert section on the wanted section so I thought I would try here. I am looking for info on who breeds/sells Orange Bee shrimp. I have two females at home and would love a male or two for them.

Please leave a reply here or email me at Tranetrak3@gmail.com Thankies! Carol/Pyne

Well, I bought them as orange bees from my LFS for 3.99 each about a month ago. The last two they had left in the tank. I just took these pics last night and the third pic is when I first bought them. And ty for ID'g these for me!

Edit: Actually, I think they are actually Neocaridina heteropoda. They have the exact same type of tiny red/orangish dots on them like the wild female has on this page.

And here is a new pic *bottom pic* I took through the magnifying glass of the darker of the females. it's not crystal clear but a better pic of what she looks like. Pyne

those sure are pretty shrimp - good shots!

I agree, looks more like a heteropoda shrimp, but I've never seen a picture of one with a stripe. lotsoffsih sells heterpoda in various colors, send him a message and maybe you can grab some from him.
