If you're looking at shrimp/prawns there's many that stay smaller!

Hi. I got two exactly like that! They had been on sale as 'Amano Shrimps' in my LPS. They'd been together with other shrimps - looked very similar but slightly smaller and a bit more transparent.
Because I had a couple shrimps before I ask the guy wether they harmless and he confirmed.

But on the other hand you said about them being vicious and I have two fishes missing recently... Coincidence?

Yeah, get them out, mine would eat anything living (she has tried to eat my shrimp that were just a little bit smaller than her at the time) she has also attacked me on several occasions!!! You're from the uk too.. Where abouts did you get them, I got mine from pets at home.. Mine was with 'amano' shrimp.. I bought three, the big one, an amano shrimp and a glass shrimp.

Yes, I also got mine from 'Pets At Home' and bought two of them. I already can't find my other shrimp ("proper" Amano Shrimp) and can see that my Guppie has one of his fin eaten... Could this by because of them?

I go to the LPS tomorrow and ask about refund/exchange-- it might be tricky though as I don't have the receipt anymore. Worst case scenario - I give them to my cat to play with, 'cause I don't have another tank to put them to

HOW DARE YOU PETS AT HOME! I ran to Wilkinsons and bought an 11L until I could get a bigger tank they can live without heat so a aerator until you get a filter!! Honestly, they're awesome pets, mine may attack me and such but it's well worth it! Plus where they gona go when you take them back? To someone with a tank full of fish only to wake up to them the next day with a big fat prawn and that's all.. Worst case scenario they can come live with mine! (if mine didn't want to eat them...) Have yours ever been berried? Mine has never been.. So I guess he's male? After every molt he fasts for a day or two, but females stock up for eggs well at least my female gs does!
Another few pics for ID



The molt

Here I'm putting the pictures of my shrimps. I'm sorry in advance for the quality-- they just won't stay stationary!
