Apparently they aren't lying or confused. I had gotten some in the past from him and they are truly amano shrimp. After they settled, I couldn't tell the difference between his pond amanos and my amanos I bought from the store. It was probably something in his ponds that affected them in this way. The guy had gotten some and just tossed them in one of his ponds and after that they were reproducing like crazy. He scoops them out and adds them to each pond he makes. Definitely not cherry shrimp as I have quite a number of them and they do not bear any resemblance. Also, amanos get much larger than cherry shrimp.

I never denied what you're claiming it to be. I'm just simply tossing out a little info from personal experience.
