No a TB is a complete different SP. it is a morph from a CRS/CBS/SNOW white. People refernence the color on the face because that is a easy way to tell the differnce on Panada tb and CBS CRS. If you look at a TB in person there is no getting it wrog. The TB color Pops, I mean is deep and vibrante. Not spotchy colorless look.

well said.

even the new mosura bkks that are mostly white with just a band of black on their head still have black faces.

I asked a similar question a while ago, Wicca. The answer always seems to be you have to see it in person.

most asian breeders wont waste their time selling to US buyers.

If you were a breeder who would you sell to?

1. US buyer who wont pay top dollar and requires expensive shipping and importing procedures.

2. Japanese buyer who will fly from Japan to your shop to pick out specific shrimp and pay you top dollar.

I think thats an easy choice. Japan is snatching up Pintos like crazy right now.


but I'm working on trying to source some from smaller breeders.

It always amazed me that Americans will spend hundreds on the latest fancy setups and gadgets, but won't spend over 10 bucks for the actual pet.

It's not the fact that they wont spend money on pets. It's that shrimp keeping is not as big a market.

Look at dogs I know my friends spent 1500+ on each of her dogs. While I went cheap and only payed 700 for mine. (not to mention his 600 dollar vet bill when he got the flu as a puppy lol).

When high grade shrimps can be sold at the same rate as in Asian, a lot more people will be willing to spend hundreds on a single shrimp. Before that happens, not many will do that. I've spent thousands on shrimps but so far the most expensive ones I have paid for is $60. Although I do have a few 300-400 worth shrimps but those were given to me as gift, lucky me.
