Hi all,

So i bought 8 Amano shrimp a good few months ago from my LFS. All of them were tiny, as time has gone on some have grown to a very good size (Bigger than my Lemon tetra) but some have stayed small. Is this a difference in male to female or are they different shrimp altogether?

One of the Amano's turned out to be a green lace shrimp (although its blue?!!) so its led me to think they could be a different sp.?

Amanos seemingly have the ability to change color depending on what they eat. So you might find them in clear, reddish brown, green or blue hues depending on their living conditions.

One of my Amano changes to a light green after eating a algae wafers.

The other few Amanos i have don't seem to change colour or not that i noticed anyway.
