Well, I don't know that much about shrimps. However, I got this straight from the Hong Kong Hill Stream Field Guide from the Government. It is possible that other shrimp in Hong Kong might look similar and not documented in this field guide. But the photo on the field guide is very similar.
Some other user (sorry, i don't remember) who was searching for HK newts have written on forum species of shrimps from field guide (i saved the list on my disk) and there are these species:
Code:
<meta http-equiv="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><title></title><meta name="GENERATOR" content="OpenOffice.org 3.1  (Win32)"><style type="text/css"> 	<!-- 		@page { size: 21cm 29.7cm; margin: 2cm } 		P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } 	--> 	</style> Shrimps: Macrobrachium hainanense, Macrobrachium nipponense, Caridina cantonensis, Caridina trifasciata
And when you search Google, the photos you find at both Caridina species searching, are mostly captive created colorful variations similiar to Red Bee or Biene.

Hong Kong is good for newts wild,
but as with most china, too many wild caught that sold in shops, is not very good.
but very pretty to look at.


thank you for the very interesting story. it was a good adventure for you :)

I think that person was ME, and this the my second attempt to search for it. :)
Thanks for the back up.
