The bolts (red, blue) are snow white, but with color bleeding into them. It'd say they are similar to the shadows than the extremes.

Did you guys see the one that IMKE found recently the "red devil"? It's one very pretty shrimp. Like all new things it's probably pretty expensive which means everything else should go down in price.

Don't you love shrimp!!!

Red bolts and blue bolts most likely came from some sort of cross between Taiwan bees & snow/golden crystal. That's my speculation at least. I haven't actually read up on it. Anyone is more than welcome to post up any related article.

It would seem so to me as well. The patterning seems too similar to goldens/snows. It's also been speculated the black in a lot of shrimp is really a deep deep deep deep blue, so to mix a TB and snow/golden and get blue bolts and eventually red bolts doesn't seem that far off. I've read from a few people that keep TB's including BB's, that the BB's are more bold than normal TB's, breed a bit better, live in conditions that killed off their BKK/WR's, etc, which would show they are more hardy and probably some sort of hybrid. Speculation on my part as well.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Most of the ones I find are shades of brown, but when I was a boy, there was a lake where they were black and red. Someday I'll go back and see if they still exist there.

I find that the BB is a more hardier shrimp than the BKK/WR. Not sure why, maybe its a genetic thing, whatever it is crossed on has the stronger genes, and therefore better survival.

My opinion, its a Snow white/Golden x BKK...
