I had some spare time yesterday, so I went and picked up a group of (6) shrimp. They were not labeled properly, so I am not sure on what kind they are.

They have clear/white bodies with stripes, and "sparkles" on the body. lol Size is around 3/4-1"+.

I will get clear pictures up tommorrow.

Thanks everyone.

Ghost/glass/grass shrimp...most big fish keepers use those as feeders, or at least they do here. I always kept a tank of them just cause they are great cleaners, and cheap.

the second and third pic kinda look like juvie Red Claw (Macrobrachium dayanum) but its hard to tell. I have read that its not completely uncommon for these to come in as ghost shrimp.

Thanks everyone. They were advertised as Cherry shrimp, which I know is not true. They were .80 each, and they only had 6 left, so I just purchased the group.

They are not little shrimp either. lol Some of them are larger than my brigg snails.
