"Dragon" pattern turning up in CRS hybrids


Hi all,

Has anyone seen the dragon pattern turn up in CRS?

I have been keeping CRS for years now and the red has always been red. The pattern looks much like the dragon pattern in Wine Red/Ruby Red TBs, but not quite as sharp. It also did not show up in my hybrids until the F2 or F3 generation. The black could possibly coming from the CBS hyprids as well since they share the same tank. The shrimp in the picture is adult sized

The SSS I got from Ebiken are so bone white and almost blood red's, it puts all my other shrimp to shame.

See that often in my PRLs. Though, it's usually only in those with the most white and least amount of red.
