Same if you mix CBS and CRS you would get some CBrS

AVN As with the general consensus of the thread, mixing the grades will AVERAGE out your shrimp quality, not send it spiraling up or down.

Over time with enough culling the lower shrimp and higher shrimp will eventually result in the same-ish grade with what you started with, but you'll have more shrimp with a higher average quality. That's just how it always works.

I keep 2-3 shrimp species per tank, making sure to only mix the ones that live in median water parameters and will not interbreed. Hybrids are generally really ugly, most of them are brownish or less vibrantly colored, and the good ones don't breed true.

I am actually, I'm getting in tangerine tigers in a few days. I'm just wondering if there is anything I could play with to make the RCS population that I do have more interesting, I'm actually wondering about the interbreeding lol

F1 will be wilds...F2+ and a little culling might make some variety.

Soothing Shrimp 1. Mixing higher quality reds with lower quality reds will bring down your higher quality to a lower quality red.

2. Rilis can be done, and would be possible. You would wind up with some lower grade rilis, but the offspring would still carry rili genes.

3. These mixes only result in a ton of wild offspring
