Orange Eyes...maybe blonde OEBT.

Blue tints however have been noted to be found in the regular tiger shrimp population. Might as well mix them and see what you get.

Yeah I bought them all out...of the 4 they had haha. Unfortunately 2 of them died. But I took everything. It was a sale, 2 a piece or 4 for 6. so I took all 4. I asked the store when the next shipment would be and they said 4 weeks, which I can't wait for since I will be headed up to school in a while.

That is interesting. So essentially this tiger is a carrier for the OEBT line?

Nope not one bit. It's strange I thought they would but I got these minnows from a guy here who keeps them with shrimp. I picked them up for 20 dollars for 50 fish. All of them keep quite well with my shrimps. No fish induced casualties yet.

regular tiger with orange eyes?

Or do my eyes deceive me? Is this just a random occurrence? I always thought that only the black or blue tigers have orange eyes. I am a shrimp noobie so just wanted to check if what I bought was a good purchase ($1.50 locally).

Is this something that happens often?
