Well, regardless they should at least be het for the color trait you are looking for.

If you don't have the phenotype, then you want to start a colony to try to get the color expressed again. This involves mating with selected adult, and the het offspring back to each other.

I was just trying to compare these guys with blonde OEBT's to see if they would be similar. These guys are definately better looking IMHO. Something about the stripping and the way it makes them look. I may keep it going after the next female hatches out and see what transpires.

If anything, there will be some nice looking clear/whiteish orange eye shrimpies around.

Keep in mind these are baby shrimps and may develop more white body color each time they molt until adulthood.

My Bengals were a dirty brownish orange at birth ( I thought they were ugly) so I tossed all of them into the tank with the TTs (tangerine tiger I only had 5 of these) and as the babies grew up I noticed I had a lot of orange shrimps with spots/stripes that I KNEW werent' in that tank before....obviously they were the new morphs (20 of them) growing up

Now each generation is still Orange with black/white tiger stripes and spots. Don't discount these yet they may very well turn into swans!!!

They look a lot like wild tigers in F1, but in F2 they develop some cool features. I just noticed I have new babies in my Bengal tank...forgot one of my females was berried a few weeks ago, so these must be hers.

Keep working on this line, its too early to tell what might develope down the road. You might end up being the first to have an all white bodied orange eyed spotted/striped shrimp...OMG wouldn't that be something!

Went down to turn off the light in the TT tank last night and I found another wee one with the big orange eyes. Recon I'll snatch him up and move him over to the other tank where the others are.

The more of the same characteristic you want often decreases the time of setting your strain.

You're saying to not move him over? I don't want to keep these guys in the same tank with the regular TTs to mix with that strain.

I'm saying separate them into two colonies if you can.

1) Your TT and your
2) "white" colony genetics.

The more "white" genetics you have, the less time to set you strain. Clear as mud? heh

Haven't spotted the babes in a couple of days now. Pops has really grown as well. I have left the two females in the tank still. I am debating about giving them one more go around since there were only (3) babes spotted originally.

Also, I haven't seen the other one in the main tank in a spell either. I'm getting ready to do a lot of plant trimming in there so we'll see.

I found papa and one of the wee ones yesterday. If I could get a pic to turn out, it would be awesome to show what the wee ones look like coming at you head on from out of the shadows. Them big bright orange eye...kinda creepy at times.

I'll be tearing into the tank this evening for a massive snail removal so we'll see what I stir up.

so i got to thinking as im tearing through this tank.....

what about the regular tt's that were born to the white/clear male? they will carry that trait with them right? i shouldnt place them in the main tt tank.
