ok...so after mum drops her eggs then remove her back to the main tank. Then as the babes grow up, let the male breed with the F1s correct?

you got it. Since you have only males with the trait, you cant make anymore. Your colored females are just being used to create offspring with the trait that the original males can breed with. Like they all said, those F1 might not show the Phenotype of that trait (cant see it) But they should have the genotype (Genes) to pass on. Then when the original males breed with the F1s, some proportion of THOSE offspring (F2) should show the Phenotype.

As an example, human eye color is really nice. Brown is dominantand Blue is recessive, just assume thats all the colors there are lol. Your white shrimp are like blue eyes(most likely) recessive and the normal color is dominant.

If mom has brown eyes B~B
And Dad has blue eyes b~b
When they have kids, they will be
(F1)
B~b
b~B And since B is dominant, it covers up b and All the F1s have brown eyes. But they have the b gene now. If we broke a few laws then their kids could have;
(F1)
Mom B~b
Dad b~B

(F2) would be
B~b
b~B
B~B
b~b which would look like 3/4 of the kids with brown eyes and 1/4 with blue.

Right now you have 2 dads with b~b, if one was a female it would save you a whole step. but your well on you way already.
I hope that all came out right, I will change it if I confused anyone...

Edit* You sure can just leave the white males with the F1s also, it will just make things move faster.

LOL Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. This is what makes shrimping so frustrating to people like me (who would love to know "this" x "that" makes "those." )

Take crs x cbs for example. Most times cbs is dominant. I wish other colors/shrimp followed that. LOL

All still doing well. Second female still saddled. I think we should be getting about close to a hatching.

In all probability, they prob will look like mom in the first gen...but I can't help but hoping you'll get at least one white one!

Are the males black eyed right now?

It would be really interesting if the color white was sex linked.

The shrimp 'traits' that defy simple Mendelian genetics are likely 'complex traits' (traits that are influenced by multiple genes), correct?
