Looks a bit like a wild orange bee, but I can't be sure. Talk to Speedie or Msjinkzd.

The guy probably mixed CBS + CRS, and this little guy popped up. It looks like a low-grade CBS or Tibee.

That one guy that is always online.

not crs cbs mix shrimp. would be other way around have more white than black. possible tibee or neo?

izit i would ask the person you got them from and see what all shrimp they keep. think its prob a diff type than the rest of what they gave you. maybe it got stuck in the net from another tank

Its not a CRS x CBS. If that happened they would just look like CBS or CRS and nothing in between. I think its a Tibee. If not just a C grade CBS.

I wish i had a guy near me who just gave me shrimp :P

not tb, tibee = tiger - bee cross. that is not crs or cbs but maybe a cross with a tiger shrimp. wild bee maybe? to be honest it kinda looks like some kind of neo at least from that angle

I think the hood looks too round to be a neo, but I've been wrong before.

Looks like a tiger bee cross. It's not a crs or cbs, and it's an F1 generation tiger bee, and by the looks of it, tiger male, crs female.
