Caridina sulawesi is a brand new shrimp to the hobby hailing from the rivers of Sulawesi. It is currently one of the rarest shrimp around. We are not aware of anyone else offering captive-bred specimen of this species at this point. C. sulawesi is a very hardy and productive shrimp with variable, but attractive coloration reminiscent of various "bee" and "bumblebee" shrimp from southern China, except that C. sulawesi can withstand much higher temperatures and is much less sensitive overall. Full coloration is not achieved until adulthood, so young animals can be very drab. Lots of potential for selective breeding in this species! As always, animals for sale are juveniles at around 3/8 to 1/2 inch.
