    originally had Red Cherry Shrimp in this tank but moved them months ago. Had one ghost shrimp remaining in this tank. I thought he died. I found this tonight. Is it my ghost shrimp? It has some color now and about 2” long.

    doesn't look like a normal ghost shrimp to me.

    could be a genetic freak from the cherry shrimp or something that snuck in as a cherry shrimp.

    Ya'll got a freaky deaky lookin shrimp thar girl :)

    what did your ghost shrimp look like when you got it?
    maybe that is what you bought as a ghost shrimp but it's different to the normal glass/ ghost shrimp.

    maybe it came in on a plant.

    My ghost shrimp use to be clear. It is living in the tree with my pleco so maybe it is mutating. Who knows! o_O
