Is this amano shrimp?

Dan12boy

Hey y’all I got some shrimp from petco and they were sold to me as Amano shrimp. They were pretty clear like Amanos should be in when I saw them there so I thought nothing of it but now they’ve all colored up and I’m not sure if they’re actually amanos or not. Any help with Id would be helpful. Here’s some pics:

It looks like a cherry shrimp. Is it that yellow or is the lighting off?

Yes they are cherry shrimps then. ;) they come in different colors. Amanos are clear with brown spots usually.

Oh wow I got them for cheaper then!! I’m happy because cherries were what I originally wanted but amanos were cheaper.

The one in your picture is saddled, so if you have a male in the bunch you can expect baby shrimp about a month after her next molt.
