|Scientific Name:||Caridina dennerli von Rintelen & Cai, 2009|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Endangered B1ab(iii,v)+2ab(iii,v) ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Wowor, D., De Grave, S. & Klotz, W.|
|Reviewer(s):||Cumberlidge, N. & Smith, K.|
The species is endemic to Lake Matano (= Danau Matano) (Sulawesi), a small lake (164.1 km2) which counts as a single location for assessment purposes. Current threats to the species are nickel mining (specifically polluting Lake Matano) and hydro-electric power installations on the southern shore of Lake Matano. Nile Perch and Cyprinus carpio have been introduced to nearby Lake Towuti (which is connected to Lake Matano), and there is the possibility of pollution from organic effluents from the rapidly expanding human population. This species is assessed as Endangered in view of the small population size, restricted distribution, and plausible threats.

|Population:||No information is known, but it is considered abundant (von Rintelen and Cai 2009).|
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:|
Caridina dennerli is generally found on rocks and gravel, from shallow water to approx. 10 m depth.
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Use and Trade:||
Caridina dennerli is available in the aquarium trade, but some (estimated 20%) of the trade is from captive breeding in Europe, the rest is still wild caught though the current levels of harvesting are thought not to have a considerable impact.
Current threats to the species are nickel mining (specifically polluting Danau Matano) and hydro-electric power installations on the southern shore of Danau Matano. Also, introduced species (Nile Perch and Cyprinus carpio) have been introduced to Towuti a connected lake) and organic effluents from the rapidly expanding human population.
No conservation plans are currently in place
