red sakura mostly male , bloodymerry mostly female ?

i just bought 40 red sakura shrimps , but they didnt look as red as my first red sakura batch .
the seller said that he sent lowgrade instead of highgrade (he forgot)

he told me to dont worry , my lowgrade can also produce highgrade because they will breed with bloodymarry (i have some bloodymarry)

he said that 90% red sakura are males and 90% bloodymarry are females . is that true ?

If he sent you a bunch of males, that might be rather infuriating. Otherwise, it sounds like the seller is just trying to make things up.

Keep your Sakuras with your Sakuras and keep the Bloody Mary separate.

Hey you're from Indonesia, so am I! lol

First, I would return the shrimps back and tell the seller to send the actual sakura shrimps that you bought in the first place. Second, I think the seller is just trying to make excuses to make you keep the low grade shrimps. As far as the sakura being 90% males and bloody mary as being 90% females I dont know the answer to that sorry, maybe others can chime in

If he is an honorable businessman, then he will send you the correct shrimp at his expense. I wouldn't even keep this batch in the same aquarium as my better ones.

Low grade *can* produce high grade, but typically at much lower ratios.

If what he means is that the females are the ones that can make the color of the highest grading standards, that is not a lie that males are less colorful. But good shrimp produce more good shrimp. The lower grade you received will not, without a lot of culling and work on your end. It does not sound to me like you received what you paid for.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
