I  flushed  it  down  the  toilet.  That's  very  unlike  me  but  I  have  no  space  for  it.  It  did  it's  job  and  I  did  mine,  no  regrets  and  I'm  ready  for  the  karmic  implications  etc.

 Thought  so  !
 
 These  are  the  same  ones  with  Red  in  their  claws.  They  kill  fish.  Lurk  around  and  rake  the  gill  area  of  the  fish  with  their  long  claws.  The  fish  collapses  after  a  while  and  they  carry  it  away.
 Rohan  got  some  of  these  in  the  wild  last  year  and  I  had  mentioned  about  these  guys.  Nasty  SOBs.  Wiped  out  my  bunch  of  corydoras.  They  are  trouble  even  at  2  cms  length.
 Get  them  all  out  !

 I  hope  I  am  not  hijaking  Arnab's  thread  with  my  images..
 These  are  what  I  caught  but  they  look  different  than  what  you  had  in  your  tank.
 Look  at  the  red  claw  !
 
 
 Some  more  images  of  those  guys  here

 Ah.  I  wish..  mine  never  did  that.  They  fed  on  expensive  hikari  food,  ate  their  own  shells  after  molting  and  as  delicacy  they  ate  cherry/melon  barb  tails.
 
 So  what's  the  scientific  name  for  this  species.

 Wow,  those  are  big!!!  But  Arnab,  just  a  thought,  wouldnt  they  have  made  a  great  meal  for  the  fish  if  you  had  frozen  and  then  chopped  them  up,  rather  than  flush  down  the  toilet?  Would  have  been  a  great  meal  for  you  too  if  they  were  in  sufficient  numbers.   Chuckle

 After  some  research  it  looks  like  one  of  the  following
 
 
    Macrobrachium   Hendersoni  
     Macrobrachium   Dayanum

 
 It  seems  either  is  called  "red-clawed  shrimp"  in  the  hobby.

 It's  hard  to  tell  shrimp  apart  without  taking  them  apart.  It  probably  isn't  M.  dayanum.  It  probably  is  safe  to  say  it  belongs  to  the  M.  hendersoni  complex  (which  covers  about  8  species  from  NE  India  eastwards).
 
 If  you  want  to  definitively  ID  this,  track  down  a  copy  of  Tiwari's  revision  of  the  NE  Indian  Palaemon  (as  the  genus  was  known  then)  from  1955.
