    Looks like an Amano or a ghost shrimp. Most probably ghost shrimp.

    Definitely not Amano’s, looks like Palaemonetes paludosus your true ghost shrimp, but there are 3-4 other sp that look EXTREMELY similar, only slightly changes.

    Hey all, the shrimp have grown a lot since I’ve posted and I’m still lost as they don’t seem to be ghost shrimp
    Also, are those eggs that the shrimp is carrying
    It has reached about the size of my ottos
