Shrimp Identification help


Recommended Posts

Hi, About 4 months ago I added 6 Amano shrimp to one of my community tanks. I still see the Amano once in a while but today when I was changing water and doing a bit of cleaning I discovered the guy in the attached pictures. He does not look like the Amano that I see now and then and he is much bigger than the Amano.  What is he?

Might be an Australian strain of amano type of shrimp.



As compared to a typical Amano Shrimps, the Australian Amano has fewer markings and is smaller in body size approximately 2 to 3 centimeters and sometimes it can grow for up to 5 centimeters.
