Frosted cherries?


Some of my RCS have developed a whiteish line running all the way from the head to tail. It looks like a light snow coating. Ive never seen this before, should I be worried? I'm calling them "frosted" cuse thats exactly what it looks like. Pictures to follow...

Of course mostly it is at random. If you could breed them to a pure strain, you could have your very own Frosted Cherry Line and have a more expensive price on them.

They're racing stripes. At night, shrimp have drag races and the theory is the racing stripes helps them go faster.

I've been breeding my cherries to keep this actually...

It appears more on the Sakura grade shrimp than the higher grades.
