Cross-breeding CRS + Opae Ula = SUPER RED KING KONG CRS
FYI, someone once told me, "I threw so many HSS (i.e. opae ula) into my crystal red shrimp (CRS) until eventually a few bred with my CRS - in fresh water! So here, this is our new Super Red King-Kong!"
Yes. All I can say is that, there is a way to do it. I know. There are some very smart genetic scientists who also happened to be CRS shrimp fanatics/breeders out there. It worked. These super CRS or the original "Super CRS King-Kong" picked up the gene of Supershrimp without losing their original beautiful physical appearance but instead, intensified its colors through unique inexplicable mutation (i.e. super red and white: maybe from the latent volcanic ashes residue in Supershrimp's gene - thousand of years ago?).
All I can say is that there are also some very powerful and unscrupulous businessmen/shareholders out there. Basically, 'they' financed the research, and only want super red/white beautiful CRS but WITHOUT all that Supershrimp's genes (i.e. can live up to 20 years, resistant and immune to germs and nasty bacterias, able to breed and survive in any and or different water conditions and temperatures; fresh and salt-water, hot and cold water' and EAT ALL SORTS OF ALGAES just like SAE but better even the blue dot algae - scrapping over your tank's glass walls for hours and days until they dissolved into the water and disappear! Plus, it is smaller that your average CRS! And WILL NOT HUNT OR EAT ITS YOUNGS - all that good staffs etc.). Now, do you understand why it was originally called 'King-Kong' (i.e. super strong and powerful like King-Kong)?
The 'red CRS King-Kong' that we see in the market right now are specially bred to achieve such coloration using the normal "weak" CRS, and has almost nothing to do with Supershrimp. However, 'they' got the ideas about breeding a "new" and more "profitable" Red CRS King-Kong (i.e. basically the type that is weak and die easily just like CRS) using CRS or shrimps with more full-body redness, from their experiences with the original "Super CRS King-Kong" as mentioned above.
Basically, 'they' want to make sure breeders and lovers of CRS in certain countries, in fact, all over the world, will continue to purchase all those expensive CRS products and CHILLERS in order to 'maintain' their precious expensive beautiful but "weak" CRS. Now, you will also understand why keepers of Supershrimps are "advised" NEVER to place them with any other shrimps (i.e. CRS) because 'they' are afraid of that 5% - 10% which may survive and or breed with your CRS - and if or when that happened, you may just get the real original King-Kongs; and 'they' will lose lots of monies.
I am kind of leaking confidential insider shrimp-breeding info here...thing is, I don't care, I never signed anything with them and I am pissed off. Last I heard, all the original Super CRS King-Kongs (i.e. the very pretty, beautiful and super strong ones) were made into expensive CRS feeds. 'They' (i.e. the f**king decision-makers) even self-righteously debated and argued by relying on Monsanto GMO's lawsuit (i.e. something so irrelevant as that has to do with lowering nutrition and minerals in foods for mass productions) to justify killing these shrimps (i.e. 'they' do not want to corrupt the natural genetic make-up of Opae Ula). How "noble". Making a species (e.g. CRS) more beautiful and SUPER STRONG is "immoral"?! But crossing among CRSs to produce 'beautiful but weak' Red King-Kong is "okay". It is very twisted. Our world is quite f**ked up.
Why am I revealing this information? Well, I hope and pray someone will use this information to try and breed Super 'CRS King-Kong' - using Supershrimp's gene. Although I believe most of you don't have state-of-the-art laboratories or technologies and monies (i.e. 'they' used like thousands of opae ula to get only just a few surviving and even among the few, not all could breed, it was like a number game), but no harm trying.
P.S. Anyone who succeed could be very rich - only for a while until almost every Super CRS keepers managed to also massively produce and breed themselves 'cause it will be so easy just like with Supershrimp (i.e. Opae Ula) - that is when the value of all and such Super CRS will drop so much so that they could end up becoming eye candies feeds for fishes. This is also another reason what "they" (i.e. apparently also CRS fanatics) were afraid of, and so self-righteously decided against breeding super CRS (i.e. basically more beautiful CRS with every attributes of Supershrimp). Crazy huh? Think we can even make a movie about this. Hollywood? CIA?! You reading this thread?!
