View Full Version : Blackberry Shrimp

My business partner bought some "blackberry" shrimp from a LFS and brought them over for me to throw in a tank. They were pretty black, pretty good sized and eventually lightened up a bit to a very dark blue. The color is light enough that I can see tiger stripes on them. I know some LFS like to create trick names for some of the shrimp and I'm wondering what these really are, like maybe actually tigers? I've seen that someone who knows shrimp have called them "Neocaridina denticulata sinensis," beats me. Thanks for any info.

If they did happen to be blue tigers, consider yourself lucky. They sell for a decent amount.
