How much harder are TBs than SSS grade CBS? My CBS have been doing really well (knock on wood!) and if this continues, I would like to possibly add a few TBs to try my hand at that, but I am wondering what people think.
Are the TBs that much harder than high grade CBS?

When my akadama lost its buffering the only shrimp that got sick and died were TBs, all my high grade CBS/CRS were fine. The TBs born in my tank are much hardier though.

Sss cbs are the same difficulty as b grade. But tb are a little bit harder than cbs.

They're almost the same, but tb babies are harder to raise.
