Default new name for Yamato shrimp

The list has been rather quite so I will post some news. The freshwater algae eating Yamato shrimp, Caridina japonica, popularized by aquascaping guru Takashi Amano has been given a new scientific name. It is now known as Caridina multidentata.

See this site for more detail :
