Sure the green one you want is triops australiensis.
You will trust him because you think you are him.

Here's my go at ID'ing these:

THIS ONE CAME UP FORBIDDEN FOR ME

http://i.pbase.com/u43/gehyra/large/281462...hieldshrimp.jpg

QUEENSLAND AUSSIE (The URL even says Queensland Crustaceans)

http://www.qm.qld.gov.au/Find+out+about/An...=400&w=283&as=1

GREEN AUSSIE (I think I read that the colour of these pics is enhanced, I have not seen a real one yet)

http://img.wonderhowto.com/images/gfx/gall...82817804584.jpg

LONGICAUDATUS - Looks like beige/brown to me, black beauties are a little darker, although very similar. I got some mottled beige with my Newberryi, which looks very different.

where can i get some queensland aussies? :o they look gorgeous

I had a feeling that green one's pic was color enhanced, cus it looks way too green. still, it would be a cool triops to have

Are black beauties a strain of longicaudatus? or their own species?

oh and heres a picture, i couldnt find the other picture (it must have been deleted by the poster or something) but heres a similar one

http://www.freeshop-web.de/shopserver/shop...00528123946.jpg

i think its a queensland aussie... since it looks very much like the other pic

Hey, how does the "Eggs for now" get posted to the left hand side with the avatars & names? Is that an automatic thing or did you enter it somewhere? That's a new one I hadn't seen before.

Not a problem re not having anything to trade, I'm in no hurry, I plan to be into this for awhile! so cool seeing different kinds grow up.

That is the original triops sold by Billabong bugs, it is closely related to T. longicaudatus but has a silvery/grey color to it.

So its a silver-ish longidaucatus? That is very cool! I will have to look into those some more, thankyou Dadasis!

PS: im planning on purchasing some eggs from you in the near future! Im really digging the albinos and..well..basically everything else you got! :lolD:

Is it true that albino triops dont live as long as the non-albinos? I mean, I havent heard this from anyone, but Im just saying that from my knowledge, some albino animals dont live as long as the normal pigmented species. I hope this is not the case cus i like the albinos alot!

Except for the coloration they are exactly the same as 'normal' canciformis. They also can grow to very large size. they are one of my favorite triops.
