Male vs female RCS

I just picked up a few low grade RCS with hopes/plans to start a breeding colony.

If I can keep them successfully I will eventually try my hand at something a little bit higher grade, but didn't...

I don't know if I want them that bad. $4 each plus $35 for shipping seems like way too much to me.

Even with their quantity discount I'd be looking at $73 for 10 shrimp.

Great. So I also hear that the higher the grade of shrimp the more delicate they are. Would the high end fire grade RCS be a good choice as well?

I'll probably hold off on something like CRS...

T8 overdrive question

I know you can use a ballast meant to drive 2 48" tubes and use it to overdrive one 48" tube with twice as much wattage. I was wondering if you can use a 48" ballast meant to drive 2 48" tubes to...
