They have various looks, some having the yellow strip on their back, others not. Personally I was really happy to see it! Unfortunately I messed up the acclimation: #MultitaskFail (>~

All shrimp were alive, and beautiful! The plants are AMAZING! I’ll never get plants anywhere else!

great shrimp, not very yellow

i ordered a pack of 10 Yellow shrimp. the delivery was fast, 12 in bag 1 DOA. i noticed they looked pretty orange in the bag, but figured the color would come out in the tank. im not sure if my expectations were too high or if im colorblind :p great active little shrimp though

So pretty!

I ordered an assortment of shrimp, and these little guys are so pretty! They have this bright yellow line running on their back, and are very active. I've had them for a week now and they are doing great.
