Mine is still not impressed with the idea of shrimp. Shes more interested by fish, but at the same time shes never experienced pet shrimp. I've had them in the past but she'll soon understand why they're awesome. The plan is to move my betta and ghostie out of the 10 gallon and dedicate that tank to shrimp.

I used to dabble in genetics by breeding mice and owning snakes, lizards, etc. What's a huge selling point to my wife is that shrimp tanks don't smell, they don't escape (and survive) and more than a couple can live in a tank to save on space.

I got a new tank and let hubby pick out the fish, décor and everything for "his" tank my former smaller tank. All I do is clean it. Now he feeds and checks on them. He loves it, its the tank in our bedroom. Its a glo tank, black sand, BlueLED lights, GLofish, couple randoms that got kicked out of the planted for eating plants.

Speaking of shrimp genetics what will happen when yellow shrimp crossbreed with fire red shrimp? Will you get just a dilution of the color or a range between yellow and red?

This goes back to my theory that there may be more than one color controller on different loci. Some people have had the experience that theirs turned to the wild color. When I did mine, I had reds and yellows first generation. I think it depends on your strain and it is pretty much impossible to know what you have until you try it.

Keep in mind the yellow mostly affects tissue color, the red is on the shell.

I actually have been pondering about this and was trying to figure it out but im sure you already know. Which colors effect tissue color and which effect shell with neos. So far i got

Red-shell
yellow-tissue
blue-? (I thought ive heard tissue you but I don't remember)
Brown-?
orange-?

Can you fill in the blanks and is there anything im leaving out?

Red- On shell

Yellow- mostly tissue, occasionally some appears on shell, but that is uncommon

Blue- mostly tissue, however there are some instances where blue appears on the shell such as my DBV, carbons, my sapphires, etc.

Brown- shell

Orange- tissue, also can be on shell

Green- on shell such as green rili or Nessie, however sometime in tissue of wilds.

White and cream can even appear on the shell as is evidenced by racing stripes. So we know this is a possibility.

Black- may actually be very concentrated blue on the shell.

Now someone just needs to breed ALL those colors into one shrimp
