RCS coloring


I was wondering if these lighter colored shrimp will develop a better color pattern as they age? Will molting affect this at all? Or are these shrimp destined to be the black sheep?

I'd say those will stay like that. I'm not an expert but I have some babies they are red and don't seem so change much as they get older. The color may just fill in as they get older if they are spotty. Are they interbred with a yellow or orange?

I'm pretty sure they are just regular old RCS.

Based on their bloodline. Some will color nicely as they get older and some just look like they never changed.
