Orange Eyed Tigers

Purchased 5 Orange Eyed Tigers from Flip Aquatics a couple of weeks ago. They are doing great in the same tank that houses Cherry Shrimp. They are all doing great and I am extremely happy with the service and quality provided by Flip Aquatics. Looking forward to expanding into more Caridina Shrimp varieties
