    Look like red to me. Seems that you have gotten red tiger from normal tiger like CRS from diamond.

    Hello,

    this could be a disease, if it becomes more and more red, you should isolate it,
    it will dy then quite soon.

    Cheers

    Yeah I thought could be a dissease, or a pre-moulting problem. But Shrimp behave as other ones, and its body looks so clear.

    Hi Xema,

    in Germany there are a few breeders who keep red tiger shrimps.
    Here you can find some photos of red tiger shrimps:
    http://www.gerdvoss.de/Wirbellose/Ti...rnele_rot.html
    (only the first photo! The other two ones are crossbred red tiger x crystal red)

    Those red tigers look a bit different to yours, don't they?
    But if your reddish one is not ill, maybe crossing your red shrimp with another tiger you can breed red tigers, too.

    Bye,

    Peter

    Definitively looks like a dissease, I have seen to died few ones.

    Does any one hear about something like?
    Does any one know some remedy?

    You can check this site:
    http://www.shrimp-diseases.com/

    They have a good diagnostic table.

    Do you think it could be this:

    Symptoms:
    Color loss, orange and white coloring of the entire back and abdomen (not in the head area) in connection with daily occasional death cases
    Causes / Diagnosis:
    Internal infections caused by different bacteria, lacking aquarium hygiene, too little water changes, stress, too many animals in one basin
    Treatment:
    Give 1,5g Chloramphenicol on 100 litres solved into the basin water, beside that give a point of a knife under the feed and feed it, free the ground regularly and pay attention to the water quality
