When I went to Big Al's I saw a very strange shrimp (not really). It looked like a very large ghost shrimp, but it was under an unusual name. They were definately not ghost shrimp. They were much, much bigger.
Do you know what they are? I forget the name. I did get 3 cardinal shrimp while I was there! The cardinals are very shy.

Was it a Amano Shrimp? They look similar only the Amano shrimp have broken brown red lines down the side, and are bigger than Ghost Shrimp.

Nope, not amano shrimp. They were much bigger. The ones I'm talking about are almost the size of a crayfish, but look almost exactly like ghost shrimp, but without the red bands.

They are called red clawed shrimp, you probably saw a female or a young male.
