New to the site and trying to identify a shrimp/lobster

I have a 75 gallon semi-planted freshwater community tank. Recently I bought what the LFS called a "blue box shrimp." I haven't been able to find it online anywhere. Has anyone ever heard of this animal?
Thanks!

No, but it's definitely a shrimp versus a crayfish. Shrimp have hinged tails, while crayfish tails are straight.

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

You might want to post with the pic in the Invertebrates section, as several members have various shrimp and other invertebrates, and someone is likely to know the species.
