Where did you get them and how old are they? Are they 1/4 of an inch? I just got a batch of 10 Tiger Shrimp a few weeks ago and some did not have much stripes at first, since then they seem to have darkened their stripes.

If you could provide pictures.

I got them off of eBay. And I've had them for a while and they have reproduced nicely but they just don't have stripes.

Judging by that pic ... Those look live juveniles, i could slightly see some stripes. Give them a bit more time to see if the stripes darken.
