I'm new to the shrimp scene. When people want to breed tons of CRS, what is the ultimate goal?

Sell?
Trade?
Feeders?
Place in display tank?

Why so many shrimp!!!?? :icon_eek:

JUST THE GLORY OF IT ALL! and they are so beautiful!

Also it gives lots and lots of cash :-D.

FEEDERS?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

And to distribute this very beautiful shrimp to as many people as possible.

And perhaps to slowly get a higher grade hehe.

If you buy high grade RCS shrimp, do they breed true and produce mostly the same grade offspring? (with a few lesser quality and better quality than the parents of course).

I think I am starting to understand. :)

And you said RCS grades? RCS don't have grades.

RCS= Red Cherry Shrimp($1-$2 each)
CRS= Crystal Red Shrimp($10+ each)
:thumbsup:
RCS will have grades sooner or later... When I have enough space.. (5-10 years down the road probably...)

CRS prices usually start at about $5 for B-C grades from Brian's Tropicals. Add in shipping express and it's $75 for 10 shrimp. Otherwise they're like $6 per w/out shipping.

I breed just for fun. Then there is experience that comes with it. Money is good also since it can help me support my hobby, but I don't think that should be the thing that pushes people to breed CRS. They're not extremely easy so Don't fool around with them.

send some this way!!!!!
you guys dont even know. Every 3 months my mother inlaw buys about 70lbs of cabbage and beets. We sit there for like 8 hours and make kimchi. Let me tell you that there is no such thing as eating to much kimchi, well maybe the day after. I have a constant supply of kimchi, from fresh to 3 months fermented.

I think there should be classes of RCS. I have some that are SS and some that are lower, I also am working on a strain of Cherry that has a really strong red body with a bright mauve stripe down their back.

Yeah, I have seen some that are extremely red! Truly beautiful and others that are mildly red, others with stripes on their back, etc. I am just saying that technically RCS aren't SOLD by grades like CRS are.

Good to know someone else is working with them!

They will be sooner or later... I'm working on a strain with yellow toned males... Looks much better than the normal ones!

My 10g was redone yesterday for CRS.... probably 2-3 months it will be all theirs.
