What's the difference between German K14 CRS and PRLs like Benibachi?


Hi everyone! I'm just wondering what the difference is between K14s and PRL shrimps like Benibachi. I searched the web and found only one website that said K14s have Snow white genes in them. If they do have snow whites, how do they breed true?

PRL's are beautifully selected and intensively breed shrimp for the highest red and white colors, and the solidness. K14's are bred for a headgear patterns by using snow whites to get them. They may throw out a snow white now and again.

Oh I get it now. I always thought the K14s were more expensive than the PRLs
