Interesting looking shrimplet

I was finally lucky enough to have a ton of little shrimp lets hatch and so far it looks like they are all doing well. Today I noticed a really interesting looking one. Most of them have the red or black 2-3 bands like the parents this guy looks To be all white with a bunch of tiny black lines



I will try to snap some pics with the slr later

Perfect thanks! I'll look them up. Is it best to let them breed with regular Crs or separate into another tank once he's bigger?

its fine to keep it in the same tank. most crs and cbs have been crossed with goldens some where down their line and every now and then some pop up

It's fine to leave them together, only time you'd need to separate them is if you were working on selective breeding and didn't like the way Goldens look

one other question on shrimplets..

In my "pond" tank (aka a big tub) I have some CPD's and pumpkin shrimp.. a few of the shrimp are very dark and a few are very clear.

One of the shrimp is completely clear with white eye (pumpkins have black ones)

if you could get a pic it would help. it could have been trying to molt so they eyes looked a bit different. i had wilds go clear to blind in so only think i could think of is something was mixed with the oranges... but for sure a pic of the ones in question will help alot if possible

Pretty much all "CRS/CBS/TB" have been crossed with goldens, TB I believe are in fact a mutation of goldens, as for other bees only PRL/PBL have never been crossed with goldens, which is how they have the "pure" in their name. You'll need a couple generations of hardcore culling to really get the golden genes out of CRS/CBS.

White eyes are generally a sign that they're about to molt. If they stay white it's whole life (even after molting) it means the shrimp is blind.

This to my knowledge has been theory and never proven.

Simple eye anatomy proves that either they are 100% blind to light and shapes, or their eyesight is so restricted they can only tell light from dark. I don't know how much you know about how eyes work, but there is a very good reason that eyes are black (or at least dark). I'm guessing you are looking for some proof beyond common sense, and since shrimp cannot read back an eye chart, we will never know just how blind they are
