This story is amazing and I'm happy he pulled through. You did a great job nursing him back to health. What kind of shrimp is that I think its beautiful.

That would be a Red Cherry Shrimp, I am just now getting babies from mine. They really do reproduce like rabbits and they are so helpful in a planted tank.

Be a master of water and the fish will follow

I'm not 100%.... his fins were ragged from being in the cup when I got him. By the time they really started to heal I left. I'm thinking he is for sure a delta, likely a super delta and a very slim chance of a halfmoon. I think he will end up being a moon/pearl/dragon scale as he has a few sparkly scales.

Here's an update! All these plants are pretty much toast, but I'm going to be ordering some from live aquaria here shortly. Also since I have to buy a bucket of salt for my reef tank, and since it is over 50$ it qualifies my whole order for free shipping, I am going to also order the Fluval Flora planted tank kit :D

Any one have any idea on these sparkly scales?


best fin shot I could get, it's his take that camera away half hearted flare.

They look like a bit of iridescence. I don't see anything worrying about him.

I didn't mean worrying, just was looking for what people think they will become.

Sorry for the confusion.

I ordered some plants from live aquaria, also, and they were infested with hundreds of baby snails :) Just be warned!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
