yes, for now, its about 2 to 3 blue notes, depending on size.
but, many are breeding them. so price should be coming down.
i am also expecting more color variants for P. clarkii in the near future. there's red, orange, blue, white, baby blue, ghost, clear ghost orange, clear ghost blue now.
with more breeding of different color combinations, more color morphs should be popping up soon.

no, not hybrids.

They are Procambarus clarkii.

They are actually the very popular 小龙虾 (little lobsters) served on dinning tables in China

Just line bred for their attractive colors.

In the original form, they are dark red in color.

Then hobbyists line bred them into the different colors.

Just like many domesticated fishes & animals in the hobby, eg, guppies, betta, mollies, shrimps, etc...

Oh like the cherry shrimps can breed out blue, brown and black. So far I have not seen any albino shrimps yet.
