The Tiger Dwarf Shrimp belongs to the species that is known already for quite a long time in the hobby. However, there is still a Babylonian mess regarding the correct scientific name of the animals. But most authors currently think that the species Caridina cantonensis
is at least the closest described relative of the Tiger Dwarf Shrimp. So it is best to name them Caridina cf. cantonensis
This is exactly the same scientific name applied on the Crystal Red and the Bee Dwarf Shrimp. And in fact all these dwarf shrimps can be crossed and the offspring is fertile over generations. This is important to know for all who are interested in breeding shrimps. One must keep the different varieties separately, otherwise a mix will appear.
