Wow thank you speedie! I will try and take good care of them. Since these are the most expensive shrimp I have ever had by a very big margin I have to be more careful with my tank from now on, but this SSS+ makes it even more imperative! I think the shrimp are worth as much as the tank, substrate, lights, filter, and everything else except the CO2 now I was thinking you let that one slip through somehow haha but of course not. I imagine anybody seriously into this hobby examines the shrimp very closely. Do you separate the SSS+ from the SSS after they are born? I can imagine how painful it is examining hundreds of shrimp and moving them to different tanks

Also does anybody know how many of the babies turn out to be SSS+? I have never bred any shrimp so if anybody has any tips to try and breed more SSS+ I would appreciate the help .

Does anybody also know whether if you keep breeding SSS+ out whether they eventually just turn purely white, is that how you get snow white shrimp?

This is totally the case with my BKK. They cost more than everything else going into the tank and the tank itself.

Day 2

This was the one that was very pale yesterday, doing great!


The SSS+'s legs are starting to color up more.


The red is filling in too on this guy, this one also has colored legs!
