Help identify this freshwater shrimp please

Recommended Posts

.Hi there,

About a month ago I caught this little fella from a creek out Bilambil way and was curious to know more about him.

From end to end it's about 4cm long. The front two leg pairs have have 'fluffy' fans instead of nippers which I thought was interesting. Is this normal for this species or was it born with serious abnormalities?

The stripe down the back is usually beige but i've seen it turn really yellow too.

Any further information would be heaps appreciated. I've never kept shrimp before, Ghost-Knife eats them all, but this guy is a master evader.
