Green jade breeding? Who’s doing it

I bought 10 green jades on aquabid. The breeder sent me 11 but 3 were doa. I contacted the seller and he also informed me they were imports from Taiwan. They arrived blue and now they’re nice and green. I’m holding them in my blue dream tank until my fluval edge is done cycling. Anyways I don’t know much about them and most info on them is pretty vague. Does anyone know if they breed true? Maybe share some pictures?

They are bred from chocolate shrimps and they will produce a variety of colors. A lot of selective breeding went into producing them. You will have to continue to selectively breed for that color.

They can, and do, breed true, but like any Neo, culling will be requierd to keep the colors as desired. There's a few people at least raising them in the USA although most probably started out with imported Jades as well for their colonies.
