The PRL should be a perfect white and a pure red. I can't see any in your picture that aren't an orangey red but they do all look to have a very high quality white. The difference between the orangey red and pure red can be quite suttle with good quality CRS like yours and may not show well on photos?

As they are mixed already there is probably little point in you fixating on it as you would be better just thinking you have 'high quality' CRS and leave it at that. The grades and patterns are the same for both types so that won't help you identify them either and I am pretty sure they must have originated from the same originals as well.

Attached you can see a PRL, the red is very pure and the white very clean and bright white,

Fantastic to hear everythiing is settling down nicely!

I think that shrimp is a black galaxy pinto and looks wonderful with the blue. It may be a low grade, or it may be some other kind as I haven't really kept up to date withe the more fancy shrimp beyond the 'taiwan bee'? It is beautiful whatever it is. Do you recall what it was that it was sold as, I see pinto and boa were on the list?

I've not come across BOA before but I looked it up and it does look to be one of those, well done!

You are going to have fun with different gened shrimp. I am sure they will all be beautiful though and you will have a lot of fun watching them and seeing the differences as they grow. I know I got very excited when I had my mixed 'taiwan bee' tank and got a new type/colour/pattern pop up.

      Welcome to SKFA. It's aย Macrobrachium of some sort. Those claws give it away. But don't know which exact species of Macrobrachium. Might be able to narrow it down to which species if we knew where the shipment was from. Where are you from? ย  Don't put this fella in a tank with other Neo Caridina or Caridina or Taiwan bee shrimps. It will eat those smaller shrimp.

      Hey all! First of all, thanks for the add!ย  I really appreciate it!ย  I hope I am not breaking any rules by posting this in this thread, so if I am, please relocate this post to where it belongs!!ย  So, about a week or so ago I got a blue crayfish from the local pet store, and they told me that this "Little Dude" (His name!) was sent along with that shipment in error and it wasn't identified, or at least the pet store didn't know what it was, or told me it was another type of crayfish.ย  After his first molt (Just last night and the fastest to complete one yet) he is a different color, slightly bigger, and I don't think he is a crayfish at all.ย  I am thinking he is a shrimp, but I am not sure.ย  If someone could confirm this for me, and possibly even identify what species of shrimp it is, that would be amazing!!ย  Please don't judge the dirty tank I have been working and then he molted so I haven't had a chance to clean it properly in a little bit.ย  I appreciate the help!

      Great news that everything seems to have settled down! When you do set up a new folter system, leave the old sponge in the tank for a couple of weeks while new one is running as it will be full of bacteria but the new one won't have any at the start etc!

      It's been awhile but things have been going ok. I got my water parameters back to around where it needs to be. KH back to 4 but I can't seem to increase GH past 5, even if I only add GH remineralizer back during a water change. Anyhow, the tank has been stable. I haven't seen many shrimp deaths or anything alarming. They are still consistently breeding. I do have to feed them much more aggressively, on a daily basis. I also started to add in mulberry and dandelion leaves for them to graze on every few days on top of the other foods. They are a bunch of hungry buggers. I need to swap to a more powerful filtration system than a sponge filter system. While the shrimp poop is awesome for growing my plants, the water has become dank and dark. I'm fine with tannins, but there are way too many particulates in the water. Going to swap to a mini canister filter system with a spin pipe to keep water flow low.. so things are going to get shook up a bit again, but hopefully it all stays stable.

      Simon, Thanks for your input. I will recheck my water parameters. Don
