Not sure if this should be posted here, but if it doesn't, would a mod mind moving it? :)

Anyways, these are the ones that I was wondering if anyone can ID? They were in the same tanks as amanos and were sold for the same price.

Really? I've heard everything else but cherry shrimps. These were mixed in with some amanos at the LFS.

Also, note that these guys have red eyes and the cherries have black eyes instead. These guys are in the same tank as cherry reds at the moment...

Thanks. :)

ID over at Frank's Aquarium indicates that they're red dragon shrimps, an Caridina sp. from Indonesia.

They sure are beauties, more so once they are settled in your tank. :)
