real or fake amano shrimp?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I just went and bought an amano shrimp at Petco last night. I'm looking at him / her and although the shape looks right, it doesn't have any telltale markings of an amano shrimp (either black dashes along the sides or dots along the sides - even Petco's site has the right pics). This shrimp looks blank on either side. I'd say maybe he's a baby but he's pretty big. About 1/3rd bigger than my adult red cherry shrimp. If you folks could help me determine whether or not he's a real amano shrimp I'd appreciate it. Pictures are on the link below.

If he's not an amano, I'd be open to guesses. Thanks! icon_smile.gif
