Neocaridina heteropoda is for sure the most popular of all dwarf shrimps; probably one must learn a new name for it, as it seems as if the name heteropoda is a junior synonym to the name davidi. But despite the name, may it be heteropoda or davidi: the dwarf shrimp scene is unthinkable without that tiny creature.
There do exist already many different sports of N. heteropoda. The wild animal is unspecatular regarding colour, but aquaristis have developed red, yellow, checkered or chocolate brown ones already. Currently we obtained a new crystal-blue one that is called “sushi blue” by the breeder.
For our customers: the shrimp has code 485203 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Neocaridina: means “new Caridina”; Caridina is another genus of shrimp. heteropoda: means “with different feet”. davidi: dedication name.
