RE: Zebra shrimp (OT)


I'm not sure if this is the same thing but last night I was poking
around and came across this link -
http://www.japan-net.ne.jp/next/red/red*e.html.  It is about Red Bee
Shrimp but the text shows that these came from some "normal bee shrimp
which are banded with black stripes".  These were apparently
"discovered" and bred by a Mr. Hisayasu Suzuki.  Knowing the way common
names change perhaps this is the same thing.  There are some links to
Mr. Suzuki's site there as well.

Hope this helps,
