:neutral: Well, Kinda boned anyway.I bought a couple Blue tiger shrimp from on of one of my very well known & respected fish shops today.at least thats what they told me they were & as they were blue &I was working from memory of what they should look like everything seem good. Well when I bought them & brought them home they looked like this.

Sooo, I went to planet Inverts.com Wich BTW is where I got the first pic & went thoughr the species until I found they ones that matched. Aperently they are called Ninja Shrimp & they change colors!! Unfortunatly they are also like Amono shrimp in the fact they breed in Salt water.CRAP! :grrr: I think I paid like $16 & change for the 2 of them. Not sure if thats a good price for ninjas but hey live & learn.

Ninjas are cool, but if you bought them with intent to breed....not so cool. I like them. I have amanos around just to help clean up the community tanks, those and SAE's.....sorry you got burned, but they are still a cool shrimp, you may have overpaid for them too though........
