Cool shrimp! Any plans to separate it and try to breed that pattern?

actually it has very shiny black....almost like a BKK, and it looks soo much like one.

I didn't have too many options on what to breed it to, so I popped it in the Taiwan tank with the BKKs. If it crosses OK, maybe some new variations, if not nothing lost.

Its a male, and I know I have one BKK female (the mamma of my 6 week old baby BKKs) but I also have a CWB in this tank along with BBs, so there's a lot of possilbilites of outcrossing.

I didn't want to just leave it and not utilize whatever genes it has, its such a cool looking shrimp. After all isn't that what hybrids are all about a challenge

Does it have any clear gaps in it's body at all. Because to me if it is solid black and white could be a pinto..... Unless you are sure a tiger was involved

No gaps...solid black/solid white. Its actually a BTOE x CRS F2 generation hybrid.

I am sooo happy with this shrimp. I am hoping it will outcross with some of my other shrimps. Working on an experiment right now.
