red tiger with orange eyes? and white stripes on a blue tiger?

I think I have a 'Murica tank going on here. I thought I had a blonde OEBT, just normal colored but with orange eyes, as people told me in my last thread. Took a picture today, and all of a sudden, he is red? The pics do not lie I don't think. All my other pictures come out just fine.

Also I bought some blue tigers and they are blue but have black eyes. Some are more blue than others but pretty sure that is to be expected with tigers (variation in color). Black eyes just means a tiger but it happened to be blue? And so OEBT would be rarer mutations of this strain (I think I read that in another thread).

Tigers can have some red stripes. Tigers vary a lot.

Haha it seems like you have some Black Eye Blue Tigers. I remember someone on the forum looking for them before.....you certainly see OEBT more often so grats on the find if you dig the look.

So is this a normal tiger with red stripes or a red tiger with orange eyes or a very confused blonde OEBT or what?

And how much can black eyed blue tigers run? I want to know if I got what I paid for lol

its a blond orange eye blue tiger shrimp. some times the strips can turn redish color. red tiger are totaly clear (most of the time) and have cherry red stripes. i love the black eye blue tigers you found they are nice. as for the price of them im not sure have not seen them for sell in forever. you can breed the 2 types together and have a chance at more orange eyes but im not sure how many you would get. i had some oebt that would turn red most of the time those were the females. here are a couple of the oebt i had that turned red

Yes it is common for OEBT to get some with Red strips. Some of my deepest colored ones are red stripped

Wicca those are some beautiful pictures and thanks for the answer. In your last picture are the two tigers next to the OEBT blondes then? They look like mine from far away. And I am hoping that the tigers will breed to OEBT, but I guess that is a we'll see kinda question

And thanks Sbarbee, hopefully I can get some of mine to breed and have color
