Seeing as I've paid a hundred+ multiple times for shrimp that looked exactly like I want, that had babies that were garbage this many times, it would be a bargain. You have no idea. The line I have now needs culling but is good overall, and that's SO much better than any experience up until now. The wild type only baby-making imported ones were such perfect adults. They came from a big name breeder too, but they were imported. My mind is still blown that NOT ONE DARN SHRIMP they ever produced was a keeper. How could one even produce such pretty shrimp that produce babies with literally no remotely similar offspring?

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

The odds are unlikely. Kind of figures. The us market needs better. I only have four varieties so far but my goal with them is to get them nice and straight
