Two questions


1)

When I looked at my tank I noticed some CRS babies that appear to be B-ish grade. The only problem is that all my other CRS are S-S+ grade. I do have OEBTs in the tank, so do these offspring match the description of a Tibee hybrid? They are too small for me to identify Tiger patterns though.

2) On the container of BorneoWild Color, it says to use within 4 months. What happens if I feed the food to the shrimps after the 4 months are over?

Can't answer question 1 but question 2 you can keep feeding as long as it doesn't smell rancid I would think. I put mine in the fridge or reezer to prolong freshness. I know with Mosura CRS they recommend putting it in the freezer because there are no preservatives in the food. That's probably the same reason for the Borneowild if I had to guess.

Don't judge a baby until it's grown up. Baby shrimp are very deceiving in what the end product is going to be.
