Hello, 
This shrimp was sold to me as a NQ Algae Eater, 1 of 3 I bought. Other 2 look right, this one however looks very different to the Algae eaters I have. To me it actually looks like a cherry shrimp. It has some blue markings but very clear. What do you guys think?

I have no clue at all. Definitely doesn't look like a NQ algae eater though.

Did you get it from Abquatics? Because I also have ordered their NQ algae shrimp on a whim and one of mine looked just like the one you received. I keep mine with my neos and they honestly look identical but they haven't hybridised yet so I'm thinking they're perhaps not the same species. I don't know where abquatics gets their livestock from but the shrimp I have and yours too also highly resembles the Caridina Malanda species someone posted here a good while ago but other than that I am also stumped!

Hey! no I did not. I got it from one of my lfs. But yeah it does look like those Caridina Malanda hey? Just a little lighter in colour.  Never heard of them before till now.
