Hi, bought 4 of these at the LFS today, they were labelled 'Blue Shrimps'. Any idea what they really are? I've never seen them before. They are pretty tiny...any one know anything about them?

I can't really tell from the photos, but here's another link that might help http://azgardens.com/shrimpfactory.php (good photos)
Possibly, the truest test of one's capacity for compassion, is whether one can love a snail.

Thanks for the links guys, on the second link the only one that looks remotely like mine is the 'Bumble Bee Shrimp', except mine are see through and don't have the same colouring. I'll try to get some better photos.

Hannah, I saw something yesterday that might be what you have? Look up "Tiger Shrimp" and see if they match :-)

Cute little guys :-)
