I gotta question, if i order some benibachi shrimp and they have babies that look just as good or better then the parents can they still be sold as benibachi shrimp and get the same price for them?

I think benibachi have to come out of the farm to be called benibachi shrimp. Even the one's that Max breeds out at this shop can't be called benibachi. You can tell people they are benibachi stock (no mix), but they aren't considered benibachi shrimp anymore (same with crimson). Stuff outside of their control cannot retain their family name (potential mixing or impurity).

You can sell shrimp for whatever price you want, but sales are determined by the buyer and seller, I doubt anyone would buy a shrimp that expensive unless you have won some shrimp competitions and have a really well known name behind it. If you become famous people will be all over your shrimps!!!

Yes they will breed if conditions are correct or atleast ideal, how else did Max get so many?!

I think they live around a year to 18 months? Something like that, plenty of time to make lots and lots of babies
