Some updates for you folks who are following this thread... Enjoy!!

CRS SSS grade on the left and two SS to the right. These are my non-PRL CRS. They are pretty damn close in color comparison though.


3-4 week old 2 bar BKK.


3-4 week old Panda TBs.


Great lookin Blue bolt TB up in the mix with F1 Mischlings.


Blue bolt TB lurking in the shadows on a IAL.


Pure Black Line CBS and a shrimplet in the foreground.


Shadow Hino TB


Fully red Ruby Extreme TB


More Orange Pumpkin Neos feasting on blanched spinach, their favorite food.


CRS S grade


CBS S grade hangin out with its CRS buddies.


XIN & Feather Pure Red Line CRS


These next 2 are special shrimplets. Their mother is a F1 Tibee and their father is either OEBT or Royal Blue Tiger.

Notice how they have strikingly similar BKK markings... very interesting because I don't have any BKK in this tank.




Last but not least, this is my Blue Neos I've been selecting for breeding off my Chocolate colony. Pretty right?

How soon will your blue neo line be ready? I know you have been working on it. The male pictured looks REALLY nice. Almost looked like a royal blue to start.

It's actually still a very young shrimp so sex can't be determined just yet. The picture makes it look mature though lol.

They really are very close in comparison but in person you can tell right away that the PRLs are much more thick in their shell.

Interesting. Being a Juvie makes it look male for sure. Your shots are so close, they might as well be adults :P

It does. The thing with most baby Caridina Cantonensis are that they are born with redish eyes but later lose it as they mature.

I'm going to see if I can breed this blue line out... time will tell.

Awesome Nick. I'm breeding a dark blue line strain myself from a mutation. It would be interesting to see if the color genetics are close on the loci.

Thanks, dude. It was from a rili mutation. I won't know until I have the strain stabilized, and then breed one to a blue chocolate to find out. I've been calling mine Sapphire.

Really, when you think about it, all cherries have the same colors in their system. It is a matter of which keys unlock what color on the DNA line that makes the "mutants."

Even then colors can be real foolers. For example, leopard geckos have had at least two albinos (Tremper and Rainwater) that when they breed, aren't on the same loci- so create normal offspring.

I suspect shrimp can be the same way with where the color lies on the DNA, so when they breed- even though they look the same- they don't line up genetically.

The only real way to find out is to breed "purebreds."

sweet found your facebook!

Hey I have a suggestion for you. Why don't you make a shrimp poster with all your professional pictures? I was going to buy Azoo's poster on amazon (ASIN B00B7JWWUE) but it is written in another language, plus they have cray fish on the poster which I'm not a fan of.

I just want a nice poster with all the neos, caridina, and all the new variation of freshwater shrimps
