I'd never even heard of a CRSxNeo cross before. It is possible that's what this guy is. I know that I had a berried CRS give birth in early January, but I've never seen any baby CRS in the tank. It would have grown faster than any shrimp I've seen before - so maybe the possibility exists that one was pregnant and gave birth that I didn't notice. Thanks, Liam and Soothing Shrimp!

I must admit, Alexopolus, that your pictures sure do look similar to mine. The stripes look a little fuller on your tibees though. There's never been a tiger near that tank on my end. I was sold the CRS as PRL, but it's also a possibility that they could have been crossed with a tiger.

Appreciate the help guys, very informative.
I have seem that the older they get, the lines turn more pronounced and the white color too. By the way, I don't think yours is sterile, I was suspecting that mine were, until one day every single one got berried (survival rate are not that great).
