Seems like pets at home have quite a few different shrimps, the first pic looks different from mine but the second looks a little bit alike

It is the same shrimp
Still, I keep thinking it has a little shorter claws than yours. Maybe it's still a baby?

It is survival of the fittest now, as one of my shrimps has lost an arm! I'm not exactly sure what has happened overnight, but this morning I noticed that one claw is missing... Wow! And they told me at stores that they are the 'gently' ones... This only shows what they know and/or how they care about the client.

Mine was white with blue claws. Red stripe down its back. It was over 20" long when I let it go. And by let it go I mean put it in a tank where it was eaten.

I hope mine won't get that big... 20"... Wow.
I'm a bit reluctant to let my shrimps go, but I see my guppies disappearing one by one and other fishes slightly stressed when night comes... Or maybe it's my Black Skirt Tetras are making so much ramble? Please, let it be tetras... I love my shrimps!
