Cool crs mutant

I have a tank I toss my culls in, and once and a while I rummage through it for any keepers or interesting things.

I found this one today and a cbs just like it, thought I'd share.

It's hard to tell with the white background, but it is a sss pattern pinto but the back half of the shrimp is clear.

Interesting, it's like a tangerine CRS. Looks like he's got a big #2 ready to go. =)

Kinda looks like a bamboo shrimp.

One of my painted fire reds has a funky stripe like that too

That's awesome, what sex is the CBS? You should try and breed them and see what happens!

Pinto Skeleton! Cool. I have a skeleton that came in with some hybrids. I'll try to get a pic.

Very cool critter. I also +1 to a micro breeding experiment, that white looks like it is going to pop when it gets older. You can call it a "Creamsicle" haha,

When it gets older? Lol, that shrimp was damn near 2 years old when I took that picture, it has since died, but I put it in with my females long enough to inseminate all of them once or twice, so hopefully in future generations I'll see more mutants likeit.

But I also hhave 2 cbs that look similar and another crs like him that are all around 2 years old, so they'll probably be dying soon too.
