It doesn't look like an orange eyed blue tiger.

For starters, it looks at least 50x the size of one.

now that I am looking at the actual pick( I couldn't really before due to the size of it vs my laptop screen lol) I am gonna have to pass on these guys if you have babies. I don't think they are pur OEBT either.

how could there be blue tigers that are not pure? wouldn't they be just brown shrimp if they had anything mixed with them?

I think that is prob sorta like mixing fish. Too chancey to be sure. I personally have never mixed them nor have I seen a for sure mixed shrimp. I, however, did not mean to imply that these may be mixed breed or whatever. I only wanted to imply that I am unsure as I have seen a lot of live Blue OR black tigers and they don't look like that.
ANYWAY, congrats on your berried-ness (lol) and good-luck. I would love to see more pics :)

The picture in the original post is a purebred Orange Eye Blue Tiger Shrimp. While OEBT will breed close to true, they will also throw off light blonde to brown to blue to black offspring. Due to these natural color variations, a premium is usually charged if you want to purchase all blue/dark blue specimens (All Black are sky high, price-wise). Finally, one thing a purebred OEBT does maintain with consistency is the orange eyes.

Congrats on the berried OEBT.

Caridina cf. cantonensis "Blue Tiger" (http://www.planetinverts.com/Blue%20Tiger%20Shrimp.html)

Here's a few examples of color variations in OEBT shrimp.
