no they are not tigers i have the aqua colored ones in with my lone oebt and no breeding as well. i know they are a high life form breeder cause they have gone mad at breeding tones of babies. the fish is an angel baby about a month old now

They look like caridina serrata to me, basically the tangerine tiger aura blue etc.

Once crossed with each other they make all sorts of colors, green and Blue being common as well as red, yellow and orange.

ok from what i found out they are c babaulti or how ever you spell it lol. from what i understand they like to "blend in" to their inviornment so that might explain why they are clear with spots in the main tank ( hex tank with natural gravel) but the down side is just cause that is what they were sold as dont mean that is what they truly are

bananariot they guy i got them from does not sell on ebay so prob not the same person.

They dont look quite like Cbabaulti to me. I've had them and they don't really look see through, though their colors do change.

They look like my TT's with no color.
