Blue Bolt Goodness

Here is a nice berried momma. I think the gradient of the blue is just about perfect.

Are you using RO water? Many people's tap water already has a lot of nitrates in it.

I kept some CPD fry in my main TB tank until they grew to the size of small adults. I never saw them try to eat any of the tasty shrimplets. And I did spend a fair amount of time watching them.

I am just joking. I think a Panda/WR Hino would actually be worth a lot more that a low grade PBL/PRL.

Counterfeit PBL

This shrimp has great solid colors. The black cannot be anymore black. Could pass for a nice PBL, except the blue specks in the belly area indicate that its just a Panda. Beware of the fakes. ...

There is plenty of stuff to work on with TBs as well. Getting the perfect dragon pattern in a Ruby Red, or a nice symmetrical no-entry Panda Hino, or the right shade of blue in a BB. . .

The hybrids I got out of a KKxGolden mix were mostly CRS or CBS in appearance, similar to what you get when you breed a CRSxGolden. Most had a really nice Hino No-Entry pattern.

Most shrimp prices drop in price over time if the shrimp is popular. That's a good thing IMHO since high prices keep people out of the hobby. BKK used to cost 4 figures!
