Same here. Got some in my tank. If the tips start getting white, it is dyiing. Mine is fully blossomed and they are really nice. Do not take chances with shrimps in your tank if you do not know what type. Rather stick them into your sump

Hi Gaz, if possible get a photo of the shrimp from the side. One of the things that is important in identifying prawns/shrimps are the shape of the spine that grows off the head from just behind or between the eyes.
