Shrimp id help


So while waiting for my sister to finish her dentist appointment, I walked into a random goldfish store and there were a tank of fire red shrimp with one lone "zebra" shrimp.


He looked so cute so I brought him thinking he is a CBS, since he didn't looked like a zebra shrimp. Except now that I can take a closer look at him. I noticed that his stripes are blue. What is he? He has white flesh like a Normal CBS, but has 4 strips of royal blue.

I'll get a better picture when I get home, we still at the doctors office lol

probably a cbs. when they get stressed they can turn blue instead of black. when i got mine in the mail they were blue for a few hours after they went in the tank and finally turned black. give it some time in the tank and see what happens. looks like it has good white and is probably tiger tooth pattern

I'm guessing a CBS with stressed coloration, or just low grade.
