I have to agree with Trevor yes, those are not amanos
Man I need to observe. There's a few 30mm+ females berried, with loads of eggs that appear to be darker, I need to wait for the pattern to set in too
I'm going to agree. They have this brown/green colour that's nothing like an amano, but are still really huge!
These are not Caridina Multidentata. They will not change to amanos by waiting staring at them.
What a cluster f_ck!!!
Yeah definitely not. Ruan is taking this up with the supplier.
Now the shrimps are a brown/green. Seriously wondering what they are!
and the supplier is no doubt taking it up with the exporter and he in turn is taking it up with their supplier, meanwhile all @Hendre wants is some genuine Amanos !
Conclusion save the stress and hassle and consider buying from local breeders
I would but given the price it's not as easily affordable for me. And rarely seems like any are available
The foreign supplier will hopefully redeem himself and make good...
Just been to N1 petworld those are not amanos they have there.
Yeah been having bad luck, the pygmy Gouramis seem to have killed two of my rasboras too, need to remove the poor lil things. Bad luck I guess
Whatever the current outcome... how the hell this happened?
Under experimental, trial or whatever permit, declared under what name by who knows or maybe they just swam to SA on they own?
Are fresh water shrimps legal to import now?
As far as I know this story is bringing a lot of undesirable attention now!
Back to square one @Hendre , we told you that before it happened... no bad luck...
They say wisdom comes with the age but sometimes it never comes.
I feel sorry for all the people who wasted they time and fuel money running after this.
I did my public apologies to Ruan because he told me that he was not involve in the importation part before we all discovered it was not amanos, which is a different matter but even if it was these is still a big question mark about the how...
All of this story won't help to make a bright future to the local shrimp hobby.
Well luckily 90% of these shrimp died in a day after careful drip acclimation and the use of established filters. Possibly bag ammonia that hurt them badly...
Next time hopefully I get proper amanos and some prime to detox the ammonia...
But yes, bad situation!

Where did your bag come from, presumably the same source as PetWorld N1 ? Their pseudo amanos seemed fine several days after arriving , so might well be something else, either the rigours of shipping to CT or your tank side... heat is a big killer this time of year which I why I never ship shrimp locally. Those shrimp are pretty hardy compared to most, so must have been something severe ....
As mentioned in a previous post the fall out from long travel and many legs can continue for a week or more so could be multiple causes...
berried shrimp are also the most vulnerable..
Might be my in tank temperature. Mine are also darker than than the N1 shrimps.
Basically they were in transit for +-6 hours when I started a drip that filled a 12l bucket in an hour and a half. Shrimp arrived in about a litre or less of water. So could either be ammonia or my 26 degree tank that killed them
To start off your Acclimatization was to fast and then 26 degrees could also be a factor.
Well Paul it was either that or let them sit in ammonia for a while. They were packed! Weirdly only my biggest shrimp survived thus far...
How many shrimp in how much water ? Ammonia levels are not usually a problem when shipped from abroad in populated bags taking 48+hrs plus,
unless the same water was used that they were shipped from abroad which is unlikely surely ?
Well no. Repacked and reshipped. I'd guess 400-600mls of water? With 30x 2-3cm shrimp in
