Talking If you cross to Neocaridina heteropoda variations they don't become sterile after all

Neocaridina heteropoda var. 'Yellow' + Neocaridina heteropoda var. 'Blue Pearl' = some cool looking shrimp and they are very fertile many generations later.

I really suck at pictures, but this shrimp is very purplish-red, has a bluish face and bright yellow piping at his tail (first set of pictures, same shrimp, auto settings):
















This one is bright white, with a clear, wild looking relative on the right:


And this is a nice brown




I'm thinking, I might need to set up a few tanks and start culling to see what develops color wise. Maybe they started the infertile rumor to keep up from creating our own color strain. I'm going to name mine variation 'alien'
