Found it in Helmut Debelius "Crustacea Guide of the World" labeled as Palaemon serenus ;)

Excellent! thats the one, common name is red handed shrimp, they are actually found in temperate waters where i live, ive seen them in the rock pools, looks like they can tolerate the higher temps. Thanks for your help everyone.

Hello Chris,
I am from Croatia, we have the palaemon elegans : thats basically your red claw typ just in a blue/ yellow version, here they are living also inbetween the rocks but can take a lot on salt reduced water as well---- on our coast we have a lot of underwater feshwater wells..... and teparatures are also no real point of concern..
I am breeding them, it is easy...... just watch out how many you really want :wink:
