Low grade crs because I like the color and they are nearly impossible to find. Nobody has them.

Royal Blues do not breed true. Sorry to disappoint but they breed just like OEBT. Some will come out blue while others will be blonde and some even black.

You talking about C grade CRS? I had a German line called Super Red Crystals once upon a time.

Thats unfortunate. I'm not interested in something that doesn't breed true. Glad to know now, though.

I'll stick with steamed shrimp with a soy, garlic, onion, ginger dipping sauce, but if I'm feeling squirrelly then I might do a cajun bake like that camping photo of yours....

As for the non-eating shrimp, I'll concentrate on getting the Benibachi X Black Impact population up so I can cull and start a new higher grade tank with a good number.

The prices of Taiwan Bees are so tempting tho!!!

When I go to college, I want to have a S CRS tank. And maybe neos that would do well in low pH.

That's just the nature of the Tiger shrimp. It's normal. Just gotta live with it if you like them. Royals, along with BTOEs, are 2 of the harder to breed sp so if you like challenge, I'd def go for them.

Oh I'm up for a challenge. And I'm not afraid to change things or spend money to make my shrimp happy.

I just need more Cardinia experience before I get my BTOE tank.

My Tangerine Tigers are doing well though

I'm looking to move on from cherry shrimp, to something with more color. I haven't done anything special with my cherries, so I'll be challenging myself using the knowledge I've gained from this forum. My goal is to obtain a 12 gallon long tank, which will be a shrimp tank. Possibly adding a micro fish species after the colony has been established. I'm a definite shrimp nut after finding TPT.

the addiction continues...

TT's are a different sp all together from other Tigers such as BTOE and OEBT. TTs are much easier to breed, kinda like cherries in a way.

TT's are Caridina seratta while the others are Caridina cantonensis. They will interbreed, especially if you keep your females cantonensis with male serattas. They are horny little bastards as you probably already know.
