Maybe interchangeable. Maybe dyslexia. Maybe people aren't as good at typing with their thumbs as we'd like. Wouldn't you expect DAE to be a native version of SAE? And therefore not use it for a shrimp? Especially when all the other shrimp acronyms end in S. But no. That would be too simple.

get your head out of fish and into shrimp. :P pretty sure they are both for the darwin algea eating shrimp but people most often use DAE since the shrimp sort of known in context (on shrimp forum etc)

There's so many different variations on the abbreviations.

SW. Snow White bee

GB. Golden bee

Careful with Rilli, there is red rilli, red rilli blue gene, carbon rilli and some are starting to breed yellow rillis now.

Blue cherry shrimp are generally known as Blue Velvet (from rilli)

Hope this helps
