Hello, a few weeks ago I got 3 Amano Shrimps for my tank. This one looks different than the other two. Now I’m not sure if it is an Amano Shrimp. It’s more clear than the other two. Can you please confirm if it is in fact an Amano? TIA!

this guy confuses me. he is very pretty. I was going to say an indian whisker shrimp, but his eyes are wrong. the eyes look caridina. i've never seen an amano with stripes. maybe a tiger caridina?? richie.p may be able to id.

Sorry for the late reply. Finally got a side photo of him. He definitely doesn’t look like an Amano.

I am leaning toward a whisker shrimp can you tell if he has pinchers? Whisker shrimp are cool but they are a murdering lot. I had two and they killed a school of guppies in short order. Definitely require a species only tank.

So I finally got a good pic of him! I think he may be closer to a tiger shrimp? But he’s got sort of a blue tint to him.
