Bloody Mary Shrimp

OK, so I'm a little confused on the lack of info I have found on these guys.

Do they breed true??

Bloody mary do not breed true. They produce a wide range of colored offspring and a small % will be bloody mary.

Well, we'll see about that soon, since I have a berried female who is just about ready to release her eggs. I doubt that Bloody Marys could be produced in the large quantities they are for export if they produced only a small % of BMs per brood. And they aren't THAT expensive. Maybe the Germans are exaggerating.

I suppose that it is possible that they are produced in quantities as the product of crossing two other strains, but that doesn't seem as likely.
