Green Babaulti Shrimp (Caridina cf. babaulti green)
Green babaulti shrimp are part of the caridina genus and can live either in soft or slightly harder water. They do NOT cross breed with crystal or taiwan bee shrimp, so are an ideal addition to such a tank. Please note, that they prefer slightly warmer water to those and should ideally be kept in water above 20C.
Babaulti shrimp will not crossbreed with crystals. Larvae are a lot smaller and have different development stages compared to their cousins.
Sometimes these shrimp are called Rainbow Shrimp as well. They can change their colouration depending on mood from green to slight brown to orange or even red.
These shrimp will crossbreed with Malaya Shrimp!
Ideal water parameters:
Temp: 20-25 C.
When introducing them to their new tank, please acclimatise them slowly in a bowl over a period of several hours, mixing your tank water with the water they came in, slowly increasing the amount of tank water until you have a mixture of 1/3 transport and 2/3 tank water. After that net them out and put them into their new home. It is normal for the shrimp to lose a little colour during transport. As soon as they are in their new tank they will colour back up to their full intensity.
