Need Help! Can't identify shrimp.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, after about half a decade off of fish keeping, I've found myself diving right back in.

 

I'm keeping a 29gallon, planted tank for shrimp keeping.

 

I purchased my first stock and they are happy and healthy, however. I've run into a problem. 

 

⚠️I bought them from Petco, the store listed them as an "Orange Bee" Neocaridina sp. To my knowledge, Bee shrimp were Caridina shrimp.⚠️

 

If anyone can help me.identify these, I'd be grateful. My water is pretty tinted with tannins so they looked whiter then normal in some of these.

 

The first 3 photos, are of one specimen in a plastic cup. Sorry for the bombardment of photos. 

 

These 7 were hard to find, and I was hoping to get more, but I need to know what they are first.

Just orange neos ignore the bee part I've already changed this for one wholesaler in Florida but there's a few others that get from the same source and for what ever reason they have neos labled as orange bees. A bunch of shrimp were misslabled at seagrest.
