all white shrimplet in my CRS/CBS tank


So I noticed a completely white shrimplet in my CRS/CBS tank, is there any way to tell if it came from a CRS or CBS? Just curious....

no, it is pretty common for CRS and CBS to have golden shrimp mixed in

CRS and CBS are just color morphs of the same thing, so no. Will be interesting to see what he looks like when he's bigger. Almost looks like a Blue Bolt.

I don't have any crs or cbs, however the white on a cbs is more gray than white, no?

So would the snow be more grayish or whitish as an indicator of cbs or crs genetics or no?

Snow white golden, almost all CBS CRS have been breed to them. Only ones not are the ones people keep as PRL

Looks like an average golden shrimp to me.

They get mixed in some lines to improve the white coloration of the shrimp.

Take it out before it achieves its breeding age if you don't wish it's genes to be further passed on.

There are PRL or PBL (pure red and pure black) lines which only spit off offspring that are Crystal Red/Black

Snow white is my guess! Keep it if you don't have PRL because it does improve the white on regular CRS/CBS when crossed with them.

Thats what I figured. I wouldn't mind if he/she spreads his/her genes I think he looks cool

Some say snow whites come from CBS, goldens from CRS, but prevailing idea is that CBS or CRS will both give golden or snow whites and they are really just two grades to the same shrimp.

No, I think most CBS are very white.

Otherwise your question kind of confused me.

Sorry to confuse. As said, I don't own any at the present time. I've read that the cbs white color tends to be more grayish and the crs white tends to be more...well...white appearing.

So if that was true I was thinking you could judge what genetics a snow white had by if it appeared more gray or white. Make sense kinda?

Ohhh interesting question. I guess I just needed it posed differently.

Well.. Quite possibly.. But I'd think the genetical throwback would just go straight back to the original golden parent.

Shrimp are odd though, I could be very wrong!
