    Hi,
    it is probably a Macrobrachium species. If it came from India, it could be Macrobrachium kulsiense which is a small, shy and quite peaceful species. As long as it's not yet known where they came from and if they are juveniles or adults it's hard to tell you which species it is.

    regards
    Robert

    If I still can remember it is $6 for 3. Anyway, they dont survive even for a week in my mature tank. They dont eat any shrimp food except bloodworm.
