Unlike the Goldens these Snows don't lose the color as they mature, they stay very white.



I want those!!! mine are a bit too gold or a bit too red

Not missing anything. The snow is just the direction I want to head in this project.

my best goldens.....have always come from my SSS babies.....the white on them is just unmatchable.

They are my favorite shrimp...I had a nice sized colony going but I sold most of it to my neighbor and then a heat wave struck and i had a bacterial infection >.>

I just pulled 20 golden babies from my mix tanks (mostly SSS CBS and TBs) into their own tank last night. I hope to selectively breed them to the nice while ones with white legs too. One of them is like that so I hope he/she starts the trend.

You want to see 19 bad golden plus one good one in a newly set up (1.5 months) 10 G tank? Sure, I'll try to snap a few pic tonight.

I have some really nice snow whites I got from Nick, they have one tiny red dot on their head other than solid white looks so thick like armour

Default Ark may be able to help

ARK on Aqua bid has some whites that he may part with. He gave me one in the last CRS that he shipped me. Excellent person to deal with and very reasonable prices. Go to AAquabid and send him a message. He will reply.
Good luck

I had a very bad experience with that Seller on aquabid. Ordered 50 OEBTs from him...he shipped me tiny (and I mean new borns) that I couldn't even tell were OEBTs..(not what I asked/paid for) and 25 of them died after the first day, the rest died a few days later.

I will not deal with that person again.
