Yes. I believe that CBS are wild-type and therefore dominant over CRS-genes, so you will get more CBS than CRS.

what if SSS grade for both CBS and CRS, that mean will get more SSS for CBS? or this will come out in different grade?

Since red is a recessive trait, it will outbreed black. Because even most blacks these dayd have been bred with reds in the past, the blacks have the recessive gene as well. In my own mixed tank offspring ends up being about 80% crs, 15% cbs and 5% golden.

Breeding high grades with each other will should yield high grades most of the time. But, there might be a possibility of a lower grade AKA SS or S appearing.

Just make a cull tank and sell off the ones you don't want, but getting lower grades shouldn't be common since you have 100% of SSS for both CBS and CRS

Chances of getting SSS (CRS or CBS) from SSS CRS x SSS CBS is the same as SSS CRS x SSS CRS. It depends mostly on how "pure" the pair carries, not the colour.

For example, I have a male golden x female SSS CBS, more than half offsprings are SSS, then of all the SSS offsping, about 70% are CBS, 30% are CRS. Another pair of SSS x SSS didn't yield as high percentage of SSS offspring.

After cycled for a month and my CRS/CBS SSS grade also just arrived yesterday ... so here is my shrimps in the tank now .. both are in same tank



My current TDS: 125, Ph: 6.5, Temp: 72.

Hope these can live well in their new tank.

if some babies turn into brown mixed with red/black, like the picture from sayurasem then it's not a good looking shrimp, but if it's only brown show up then it's different look .. anyone have any idea about it?

You're only going to get a small number of browns and I find they don't breed true, so when it breeds with another shrimp, it will give a red of black, depending on who it bred with.

There can be some nice looking ones, I have one female that just got berried and moved to the birthing tank, so I won't move her to get a pic but when she comes out I will try. It looks like a black underneath with a red coating on top, so it looks like a chocolate brown color and it's very solid and not splotchy or see through brown or anything. She's also about 70% brown with very little white, so I'm hoping the babies come out looking neat. This only means you have to setup another tank, one to keep the nice looking ones, one to throw the oddballs into. If no one thought of keeping CRS, CBS and goldens together, we wouldn't have Taiwan Bee's right now.
