Are the eggs always the same color in a line of shrimp, always red/purple for CRS or yellow for most neos?

Typically yes. From what I've read, mischlings that carry potential TB's, the TB eggs will be a darker color.

Neos will have yellow and sometimes green eggs. For OEBT, they have yellow eggs, but once mixed with BTOE, they'll carry dark eggs.

Robb,

Honestly I can't tell you what exactly crossed with the female CWBs. I've got them all mixed: Shadow Pandas, BKK, Ruby Reds, WR Pandas, Blue bolts, Shadow mischlings, and CWBs.

MOAR TB babies!

Look what came out of the woodworks today! About 1 week old, the size of a pin head.

Yes it's a BB baby . From what I've been seeing, most newborn caridina cantonensis (except Tigers) shrimp are born with pink eyes. They later change color as the shrimp ages.
