Babies patterns?


I'm noticing a lot of babies with some weird (but nice) patterns, any suggestions? Is it too early to say or I'm up to something?
Sorry the pics are not the best,I need to invest in a camera, it's hard to take good pics with iPad or iPhone.

Any suggestions for what? Breed them? Separate them?

They are too young to tell but so far I can say they are at least SS+ if not SSS!

The first pic looks a lot like SSS crown mosura, like in my avatar pic. It looks like you got some nice shrimp there.

Looks good, but remember shrimp pattern change as they grow, so many sss babies I have had turn out to be ss, darn little red dot starts appearing right in the middle of the back, haha.

Either way, good shrimp!

I think the brown ones look beautiful, but no one to my knowledge has actively selectively bred for it.

To be fair, I have to say there's some speculation that it cannot be bred for as it may not be an inheritable trait, however I'm on the fringe by saying if it can be expressed, it can be bred.
