Hi,

This was bought by me thinking it is a Blue Tiger Shrimp but I pics I saw on net of Blue Tiger Shrimp are different.

Can anyone confirm if this is Shrimp only...... not a small crayfish.

Thanks
- Rohit

It's a shrimp....Shrimp have hinged tails, crayfish do not. you can clearly see the angle in the tail in the pics.

I don't know, but that's one vicious-looking shrimp! Definitely not a blue tiger shrimp, as tiger shrimp have tiny claws, not these monstrous pincers.

My first thought was the crayfish Cambarellus montezumae, but Jaysee proved otherwise.

Dear Friends,

Unfortunately, both of the 2 of these I bought died :'(

I don't know the reason why. My Amano shrimps in the same tank are doing just fine.
