Blue Pearl Shrimp
蓝珍珠虾
Snow Ball Shrimp
雪球虾

Characteristic shape of the shrimps belonging to the Neocaridina genus, medium length rostrum. To this day, it is difficult to say what is the colouration of the Wild type specimens. The status being itself questioned by specialists on the subject. The selected forms like the White Pearl are widely available. The have a translucent white background colouration and characteristic black eyes. The female gonads produce de ovarian masses that is of a very luminous white colour. This ovarian mass will after fertilisation give very white eggs that look like white pearl, explaining the commercial name of this specie which is White Pearl. The blue type, is a bit less frequent, necessitating a good grasp of breeding and selection to keep the type as blue as possible.

概述:蓝珍珠虾和雪球虾有血缘关系,在经过杂交选育繁殖出蓝色品种。珍贵程度跟蓝色的深浅有直接关系。
繁殖:大概2个月繁殖一次,背卵大概3周左右,而后怀蛋3-5个月,取决于温度,如果水质达标,繁殖会很容易。和樱花虾,黄金米虾的要求一样。最好不要和其他虾种杂交,否则得不到好的变异效果(但我个人认为遗传变异是两面性的),当然,此虾不应该用来杂交,而是提纯。

雪球虾对于水的要求相对于水晶虾要宽松,只要水质无有害物质就可以进行繁殖。喂养非常容易,因为他们接受几乎任何种类的虾/鱼的食物。他们吃烫菠菜,南瓜,海藻片,虾丸,鱼薄片,红虫什么的等等。2-3小时吃完。
  选育:雪球虾是多产的,他们的繁殖很容易,甚至昼夜不停,一个健康成熟的雪球虾群体,会迅速滋生甚至“爆缸”。切忌一般观赏虾选育方法为提纯,而不是通过杂交变异来产生特殊种类,那样只会适得其反。
