Maybe if you have more than one, you can breed them to see if they breed true.

Op - I've crossed CWB with TB and results are mischlings. In the early development stages, some of the baby shrimp looked very much like a blue jellies. My plan is to cross those mischlings back to CWB and TB to see what the results will be. If what I've been told is true, you will get hulks and blue jellies from one of those crosses with the CWB x TB F1 hybrid.
That pic was way over exposed, that shrimp only has two or three white white half circles on the back. Just like two bar BKK as you described it. I got four 6 months ago but only have two left, lucky thing is they are a pair and the female is berried for 3 weeks now. The idea of a hulk is why I posted this question. Do you have a pic of the blue jelly like F1 you would share?
