I've seen people selling Aura Blue hybrids in Au - are they really here??  Can anyone confirm?

Hi @Kaylenna, the Aura blue tigers are actually Tupfel shrimp/ Caridina Serrata. I have not seen the green apple or Aura blue available here yet.

Perhaps it's incorrectly named or there are 2 species sharing the name, but...

I've seen it as Caridina cf cantonesis other places too, and yes I know the thing about "cantonesis" being renamed/misnamed etc.

I've tried to search for definitive info, but the scientific names of shrimps appear not to be a top priority for most people, especially those with access to genetic sequencing gear.  If you have some sort of confirmation, please share.

Aura blue are caridina cantonensis not cf. cantonensis, tupfel are found in a different location. Shrimp are not described using genetics but physical traits.
