That’s awesome! We had one member here on the forums a while ago that had green eggs but we put that down to the food he was feeding but going off the colour of The shrimp it’s completely possible it’s a bit of an albino style Opae ula, you will get them now and again. Very rare..... let us know how it’s gets on!

Yes it looks like that shrimp belong to the very rare white strain that haves greenish or bluish eggs, much rarer than the orange/yellow morph. Would be interesting to have several of them in a tank and try to breed them true
