Computer Science Thanks guys. I'm confident that the shrimp in the last 2 pictures is a male. I just had difficulty sexing the first 2 shrimp =P

I have one berried benibachi female and three benibachi males. I'm pretty sure its the 4th stringers. Shawn didn't tell me which string they are. The whites on them are a bit faded and not solid.

azjenny The one on the top to the left is almost surely female, but the others I can't tell for sure from here.

ravensgate The first two look like females, the last one looks like a male but with the camera angled down on him instead of straight out to the side its hard to tell. And those are just my best armchair guesses

Can you guys help me sex these shrimp?

Hi everyone! I'm planning on doing some selective breeding to make kangshiang's PRL have better colors. I have separated kangshiang's PRL from my benibachis and I'm trying to do a benibachi male x kangshiang female cross. The first three pictures are kangshiang's PRL while the last two pictures are the benibachi
