It almost seems a shame to get high grade (SSS, etc.) CRS/CBS when the coloration is as intense as it on Kangshiang's shrimp.

Same thing with those ebiten PRL that yoyodreamer imported last year. Seems a shame to have such an awesome red and breed them out to make it all disappear.

Not saying that it shouldn't be done, just musing on how the intense coloration really makes the contrast between colors more attractive.

yeah, i mean, im not trying to breed it out, hence the move of the lower grades out of this tank. My other SS/SSS are close enough to kang's that it shouldn't be a problem. Also, moving the CBS to a breeder box using getochkn's method of canister filter fresh water to the box

Grabbed a couple pics this morning of the cinereum mini, and ban ba wa I just recieved. I got two of each plant and put one each in the 29gal and the 20gal just so i'll have some regardless. Don't want to lose them. Still waiting on the trithuria blood vomit, that should be coming soon!

Here's the Erio Cinereum "Mini":


And the Erio "Ban Ba Wa":

Got some new arrivals yesterday! 2 SSS and 5 SS from 10Scholar on fleabay.




I'm steadily trying to get a nice colony going here, i only have 1 high grade female at the moment and 1 pretty good grade, both SS. Hoping there's a couple out of this new stock. Its hard now that I have these nice pure line shrimp to find more to add without diluting the white/red in the process.. Going to give it a few days before I decide to cull any of them out and into the 29gal with the other lower quality s-ss crs. We'll see soon. This tank is covered in white film all the way around now so it's hard to take good pics of the shrimp with my phone... Will keep trying.

ah, forgot to mention! I've had 2-3 batches of F1 TTxSS CRS shrimplets hatch recently and they're running around the tank, can't get good pics, but they are definitely crossed. here's the best I can do for a teaser at the moment:

Oh yeah thanks bro!

These F1's will be moved to a breeder box once they hit close to breeding age. I think I'm going to just breed them all together and see if I can stabilize the pattern(s). Will have to wait a bit to see what patterns I actually have, but ya ^^

Wait...is the purpose of the dividers to prevent the shrimps from cross-breeding? Wouldn't the babies swim through the holes and cross-breed when they grow up? Sorry if I don't understand; I'm new to the whole shrimp scene.

I don't use the dividers anymore, haven't for some months now. even the adults could get through, and when I had it sealed to where they couldn't, they would just climb the 2" out of water and jump over to the other side lol. Actually caught it in video a couple pages back. I lost the golden's and the bkk/wr shortly after taking down the 15gal they were in with the dividers and moving everyone into the 20gal. Since then i've moved the lower quality s-SS CRS into the 29gal, moved the CBS into a large external breeder box with a sponge in the outtake on the 20gal. Kept the TT's and SS-SSS CRS in the 20gal together, and I'm currently in the slow process of moving all the Sakura/PFR's out of the 20 and into the 29.

Oh ya, definitely pretty cool looking now that they're getting bigger!

Looks like they have a crown, they have the 2 large maro spots on it, and then two Hino no entry marks at mid carapace and again at the tail, the markings are one white line and then one black line to make up the Hino no-entry, the rest of the body seems a slightly darker tangerine/brownish with the black serrata spots on the bottom of the shrimp like regular TT's.

Needless to say, I am definitely going to get these F1's breeding and see if I can stabilize the line, as well as increase the depth of the colors.

1 month? Should be around 1/4" or so.
