  About the Cover

This issue’s cover photo featuring three of the most popular color forms of the dwarf shrimp Neocaridina davidi illustrates why freshwater invertebrates are so hot in the aquarium hobby today. As internationally recognized inverts expert Chris Lukhaup explains in “Fascinating Freshwater Inverts!” (p. 46), ornamental freshwater shrimp have been a steadily growing segment of the hobby since the late 1990s, and with new color forms continually coming onto the market, their popularity has virtually exploded in recent years.

Species Profiles


Tip of the Month:

To protect valuable specimens, set up their tank with two heaters, each rated at half the required wattage. If one sticks on, the other will stay off, and the water will not overheat as much or as quickly.
