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.
Thanks speedie, yeah it might be totally unrelated. The picture shows the sparkling as white, but there is actually no white at all on the shrimp. It also has turquoise eggs, so unless there's some really strange coincidence, I'd say it's pretty close.

It's definitely not from Germany like regular CWB, but appears to have the major qualities of them.
