    Default blue tiger shrimp

    hi

    I think it's been up before, but thought I'd run it by you guys.

    Blue tiger shrimp?

    myth or fac? hehe.

    I have a chance to buy a few, but dont know 100% which sp. it is. He sells them as blue tigers and the price is marvellously high.

    Does anyone have this sp?

    pictures?

    When they are expensive you should look at the color of the eyes.
    They have to be pink or orange and not only black.
    These are so called "true" blue tigers.
    Not all the offspring will get blue.
    You have to select them to keep the best color.
    Normal tiger shrimps can also be blue but its not as deep as the ones with special eyes.
    At the moment they are very expensive even in germany.
