Love the red tigers man. Rare in the hobby still
I kept them for a little bit but not no more.

Red Tigers are cool but they're the kind of shrimp that only look good in pictures. Once in your tank, they are super hard to spot (even with a large horde) because they're always so well camouflaged, just like a real tiger.

Oh no! Too bad you don't keep them. I'd have added them to my list I'm making for you :P. I either have to find a female or let my population die out

That's also kind of sad about the red tigers. They call out to me in photographs, but I'll take your word that they're good hiders normally.

Hey Nick. What happens when a BKK male mates with a CRS female? Will there be any black/brown looking offspring? Or will they all look like CRS?

Hit up Jimko. He has TTs avail. Don't give up!

It's not that they hide, it's because they're not super colorful to where they stand out like other shrimp with bold/contrasting colors.

My camera is old compared to what's available nowadays. It's a solid cam though and easy to use once you get the hang of the controls.

Glad you like the shrimp. Thanks!

You get what the Germans call, Mischlings. They will look like ordinary CRS/CBS/Snow/Goldens but they carry the Taiwan bee gene. If you cross these mischlings back with Taiwan Bees, you'll get a percentage of those offspring being Taiwan bees. Mischling x mischling will also yield Taiwan bees but a smaller percentage.

I love the little baby shrimp in the first picture. Isn't he a bit young to be on a cheeto diet already?

It's never too young! Didn't you know crushed cheetos was the secret ingredient to keeping babies alive past 2 weeks?
