Krewetka o zielonym ubarwieniu. U niektórych pojawia się też seledynowy pasek na grzbiecie. Samce są z reguły mniej efektownie ubarwione od samic.
Charakterystyczne dla tej krewetki jest wydłużone rostrum ("nos"), to odróżnia krewetkę Caridina Cf. Babaulti green od Heteropoda var. Green.

- My observations: Zebra shrimps are often shy and skittish, specially when they live in small groups. They spend most of the day grazing on plants or gravel. They also tend to stay hidden all day long, come out just to eat. The bigger their population is, the more active they are. According to my experience, Green neon shrimp do not mix with any other kinds available in Poland.
- Special notes: Most shrimps are herd animals, that's why it's better to keep them in a tank of over 20 liters.
