Recently, I ordered a bunch of blue diamond shrimp. I certainly got them, but a few of them have orange eyes and dark stripes. Frankly, they look a lot like low-grade OEBTs. I'm wondering if they're Neos or OEBTs.
Sorry I can't post pics yet; my camera is at home, and I only have my ipod and phone cameras (which suck).

Also, if they are OEBTs that's awesome; I always wanted to get some.

Color Not Really Determinate

Body structure about the only way to tell (taxonomy) Neocaridina Heteropoda versus Caridina cf Cantonesis, colors are wildly varied.

Blue diamonds tend to have a lot of variation in their colors and with coverage on their shells.

Yeah they look a lot like those. I'll see if I can get a picture; no promises since my camera hates my fish tank

Sorry, can't get any pictures. My camera is a blurry piece of junk.
