10 gallon heavily planted since May. I was showing 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and 0 nitrates.Pet shop thought even though I have 5 otos and plenty of bladder snails that it might not be fully cycled(lack of nitrates). So they gave me 3 Fire cherry shrimp to see how they would do. Long story short, everything is fine after 3 weeks that they have been in my tank. So I went back to the shop and purchased 8 more shrimp. It wasn’t until I got home and was doing a 4 hour drip acclamation that I noticed these cherry shrimp were not as dark red as my Fire shrimp. Turns out the person I was dealing with at the shop on earlier visits wasn’t there when I bought my shrimp from the same tank. The other person didn’t know I had Fire shrimp and did not tell me they were out of stock. The ones in the tank looked like what I had and the tank was labeled Fire shrimp. But what they got in were a very nice grade of red cherry shrimp.So I kept them. It would have been a 20 mile trek back to the shop and I didn’t want to go back or stress the shrimp. So I was looking up what may happen when they breed. From what I can find out is the offspring from both will produce a lower grade Fire Shrimp and a higher grade cherry shrimp. Since they both are cherry shrimp and the difference is the color grading I’m still happy with them. I never planned on selling them and don’t think I’ll cull any. But my question is …. Is there a chance they would go back to a wild state of coloration somewhere down the line, If I add anymore they would be Fire Shrimp. I have only the one tank and at this time don’t plan on starting another tank.
