New OEBTs

A few months ago I lost some of my OEBT so I relocated the survivors to my CRS tank. It's been a couple months since then and I wanted more OEBTs (and OEBT babies) so I added 5 more OEBTs to the 4 I already had. I ordered them from Speedie, and I got them yesterday. I gotta say, these guys are SUPER blue. They're like the best blues out of the best blues. Thanks for the shrimp Speedie

Here are some pics:

Now I have:
9 CRS
+9 OEBT

What's the Brown shrimp in the last pic? A chocolate neo?

I think I may actually have a legit TiBee this time--I'm 90% sure it's a TiBee. I found it in the moss, and it looks very light brown and translucent. I can't tell if the eyes are orange or red. I tried to shake it out of the moss to get a better picture, but once it swam out of the moss it hid in the substrate. Since my Azoo substrate is light brown, it was camouflaged.

Can anyone verify if F1 Tibees have a clear/brownish coloring?

Glad to see they're doing well for you Overgrowth.

You got pictures of the Tibee parents? What are they?

It's still a baby, and I haven't seen it since that day, but it's definitely a S grade CRS x OEBT cross. I do also have a berried OEBT, and it doesn't seem like my older males (not yours) are interested in breeding, so there may be some more on the way.
