My opinion, its a Snow white/Golden x BKK...
I've kept many BB and even more BKK/WR. They've all been rather hardy for me the same. Now I just need to experience how hardy their babies will be.

Beautiful shrimp pictures! The crawdads near me are bright red/white. I thought they always looked like that. Your picture has taught me otherwise lol. The ones around here are brave. They will walk right up to you for you to pick up.

Thanks! I'd love to see pics of those crawfish. I've actually thought crawfish were red, until I saw these native bad boys. These guys aren't exactly skittish either, they would come up to the bait (chx drumstick) and the greedy bastards will not let go after they take a hold. Made it easy to fish em out lol.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
