I believe they aren't considered "real" tigers because they are a different species. TT/Orange Tigers are Caridina serrata. Whereas, CRS, CBS and the other tigers are all Caridina cantonensis. They can still interbreed with C. cantonensis though and someone else will have to chime in, but I assume the hybrid offspring are sterile.
Looking forward to pics of your new guys!!
