Offering Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi).

Neocaridina davidi have noticeable sexual dimorphism. The male is smaller and usually less colorful than the female. The male’s tail, not being needed to carry eggs, is narrower. The female is larger and usually displays a richer, more opaque coloration, however selective breeding can produce males with similar quality of coloration. On the upper section of the female’s body, on the “shoulder”, the developing eggs on the ovaries may be seen in more transparent individuals. The color of these eggs will depend on the breed of individual shrimp. The shape of the ovaries drapes across both sides of the shrimp, giving rise to the nickname “saddle”. The presence of a “saddle” indicates a female that is likely ready to mate.
