Great white CRS ?


So I have a ... bully in my tank and hes pure white (poop vein aside). He doesnt like other shrimp swimming near him. They can crawl around all they want same rock etc. However it appears his favorite hobby is to sit near the top of my 3 rocks wait for another shrimp to swim by jump on them shoot himself high in the water off their back and repeat until their insolence subsides.


He is one of the 3rd set of shrimp from my original 20 and is larger than most in his generation. Anyone else have one like that?

Here are some other random pics playing with my phone settings.

I have noticed the goldens I have being FAR more bully-ish than the CRS and CBS. Coincidentally, out of the last two batches of babies...the goldens are the largest of all of them.

That's how it is with humans sometimes too, the funny looking kids get beat up on, then when they get huge they start beating on the normal kids!

He's no being a bully, he's just keeping the real bullies far away. Self defense!

It's quite possible that there could be a relationship between white coloring and testosterone-like hormones.
