Even if it wasn't what you expected and it is a slight inconvenience those shrimp are still worth some $.

Sort of like getting a car for Christmas but not exactly the one that you were hoping for.

Having to 'make due' with the red babies is a problem that many of us would be envious of.

edit: BTW, you are doing the right thing trying to calm things down. I too have noticed the lynch-mob mentality around here about some of these issues. As long as the buyer and seller are working things out then there is no need for other people to be involved or concerned.

Don't worry Howard. Your CBS will give you the best baby CBS ever. You see they grow, berried, and then baby shrimps, that's the goal.

We paid for the shrimp itself, not the berried shrimp. Raise it and then sell it. This mama will be berried soon.

No need for Maury. However if Mendelian Genetics holds true for shrimps.

BB = CBS
Bb = CBS with hidden red gene,
bb = CRS.

BB X bb = 100% Bb CBS with hidden gene. The whole batch should have been CBS looking but tainted with a recessive red.
Bb X bb = 25% Bb 75%bb. 75% CRS, 25% chance of CBS with hidden gene (Bb). <---this is what I suspect from this batch.
Bb X Bb = 25% BB, 25% bb, 50% Bb

When I cross back with the existing CBS in the tank. If I see CRS from a CBS X CBS crossing then this line is not pure then I will have a real problems with the rest of my shrimps. Right now the problem is only one shrimp. That will mean Bb X Bb is the only way for red show.

Captain's Log #397: Final Entry

Killed 3 Benibachi CBS in one week. Random deaths and incomplete molts. Tested the pH and they were living in 4.7-4.8 pH!!! I used too much Africana for this tank. Moved out all the shrimps into the 30c with only Amazonia. The new Amazonia is much stronger than the old stuff. pH is 5.5 in the new tank with only Amazonia. Better but not great.

Emptied out this tank and will rebuild this tank better than ever.

Stay Tuned for: |ShimpTech V3. Modular UGF.| We're going Carbon Hydrogen Neutral Baby!

Here is some final parting shots.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

So sorry to hear that Howard. What was that saying? You only become stronger when you fall? Something like that...

What grade were they?

Thanks for reading.

The genetic issue was that the CBS female was transported with CRS and got knocked up by a PRL. Max was super cool about it and I returned that one shrimp for a refund.

My PBL is still going strong in v4 no more random reds.

Enjoy my other journals.
