Boat load of F4 survived. Are they became more adapted to artificial rearing or improved in husbandry. Difficult to say. They looks to grow faster than F3. F3 is grow slow and smaller shrimps.

I don't know how you do it! Finally found some true amanos locally... and the stores had a "buy 3, get 4th free" deal... where-in they *conveniently* had THREE or less shrimp during the entire freaking sale........ (damn COVID hours and working same day as shipments... couldn't get in before they closed) except on the last day, they actually had some left... but I only managed to get 7 in total... so far, no breeding from them... but it seems the YKK's are going nuts!

Became to notice that their dark marking dashes and dots less visible and as generations go by, might become a false Amano shrimp ?

Was curious about the dots and dashes... but I really don't think they are the same as false amanos... body shape is just different... that is, the "false amanos" appear "thicker" to me, particularly the females... where-as true amanos are more streemlined. Kind of like the build of a great dane vs a mastiff.... both big dogs, but one is more lean/thinner where-as the other is thicker bodied/bigger boned.

I've also had a male amano in with female false amanos and the false ones never berried up... not until I introduced males of the false variety into the tank.
