+1. Parents genetics will play a huge roll. Babies I can see in my higher grade tank from 1 mother right now range from a few A/S grade,some SS grade, a few snow's and a few CBS as well. I'm sure those A/S grade babies when they grow up will throw out a few higher grades as their are only high grades in the breeding tank.

In my cull tank, I can see a few SS babies when it's mostly lower grades in there, so the babies in there will go to higher grade tank and the lower grades from the other tank will get moved to the lower grade tank.

kevmo911 Guys, he's only asking about jumping up a single grade step, not go from C's to SSS+'s overnight. Some patience and careful culling should see some decent results over a matter of months.

Totally agree. If one prefer the look of the higher grade, start with a few SS.

rodcuda You would likely get some S grade on the first generation depending on the quality and lineage of the A parents. And then culling could continue to improve those percentages.

Breeding Higher grade shrimp

Ok so I am sure this has been covered but is it possiable to start with A grade CRS/CBS. and through culling obtain higher grades? how many generations would it take to get s grade or higher?

Curt
