View Full Version : Cherry Red Shrimp (Blue Tint?)

09-29-2011, 02:03 PM
I just ordered 10 cherry red shrimp to add to my planted tank and when they arrived a few of them seem to be blue instead of red. I was just curious if maybe the shipping process could cause this or if any of you have experienced the same thing? I have heard of shrimp losing their color during shipping but changing from red to blue makes me think that some of these are blue shrimp not cherry red ones. If I received two types of shrimp that would be fine assuming that they can't crossbreed with each other.

Hi....here is a thread that you may find interesting from just a few days ago.


I'd ask the person you bought them from about it also.
