Soothing Shrimp I wouldn't be surprised. Sometimes the babies look quite a bit different than as adults.

speedie408 I can't seem to find the little feller any longer. he may have turned black lol. There's a bunch of baby Pandas running around so it's very likely. That's why I want to try breeding F1's back with the parents to see what comes out.

Soothing Shrimp Nick, I'm hoping the blue stays that way. I've heard that sometimes the blue turns black.

randyl Beautiful beautiful shrimp, hope to see how it turns out in a few months. Thanks Speedie.

speedie408 Randy - here's that TB x CWB baby I was telling you about earlier:


Liam - I'd be interested to see how yours breed out for you. Good luck man.

Op - I've crossed CWB with TB and results are mischlings. In the early development stages, some of the baby shrimp looked very much like a blue jellies. My plan is to cross those mischlings back to CWB and TB to see what the results will be. If what I've been told is true, you will get hulks and blue jellies from one of those crosses with the CWB x TB F1 hybrid.
Thanks speedie, yeah it might be totally unrelated. The picture shows the sparkling as white, but there is actually no white at all on the shrimp. It also has turquoise eggs, so unless there's some really strange coincidence, I'd say it's pretty close.

It's definitely not from Germany like regular CWB, but appears to have the major qualities of them.

speedie408 ^^ I'm referring to Liam's pic, sorry for not being clear Randy.

I have pics in my picture thread in my sig. Too busy at work to look through them atm but I'll filter through them later for you.

That pic was way over exposed, that shrimp only has two or three white white half circles on the back. Just like two bar BKK as you described it. I got four 6 months ago but only have two left, lucky thing is they are a pair and the female is berried for 3 weeks now. The idea of a hulk is why I posted this question. Do you have a pic of the blue jelly like F1 you would share?

Maybe that will be discovered in my next picture.

The cwb was indeed an F3 selection from tt x cbs.

Thank you, Sir. Do you know the colour pattern in F1 or that would give out the secret?:P
