Pure Black Line and Crystal Black breeding?

Hey guys, I currently have my PBL and CBS I the same tank right now. Will these two groups breeding affect the quality of the offsprings they have? Will my new shrimps be considered PBL still or CBS now?

I would call them CBS since it's degrading the line of the PBL.

PBL were bred through selective breeding to get the bright/strong colors where-as CBS are supposedly mixed to attain the same coloration.

You will probably get some awesome CBS, but it all depends on quality! My understanding is that pure line means that you know that the line has always been CBS, without any mixing between CRS, Tigers, Bees, etc.

Nothing wrong with crossing out/ introducing some pure line genetics into your CBS though!

Clean Filter, Trim Plants, Change Water, Dose Fertz, Feed Fish, Repeat!
