From what I can see they look good.

Ditto! They look good to me too. :) I don't bother thinning mine out for traits. I just let them breed. LOL Super red looking too and I didn't have to do a thing. :) But some people like the stripe down the back, etc... I have those too. I have yet to see a black one pop out though, as some others have seen in their stock.

Next time you think about culling shrimp, PLEASE just send them my way. Rejects or no, it's hard to get any cherries around here that aren't running for over $6 each!!!
I think you have the wrong idea.
FWIW I cull by selling or giving away shrimp NOT by killing them. These guys are my pets you know. That being said a dog is a pet too, yet I never hear if anyone culling a litter of dogs. They sell them or give them away like I do with my shrimp.

IME culling means killing.
Most of the time when it is used around here it is just removing undesirable critters from the population. You see "culling" done a lot of shrimp, especially CRS. You don't want your prized S shrimp mating with a C grade, that's a waste of good eggs!

wow looking great! Much better from when you first posted them as pink shrimp.
I just lost a bunch of my cherries. dunno why they just all dropped dead. So I might be interested in taking some off your hands when your ready to thin them out again.

I still have to thin out even more. The shrimp just dropped like 300 more babies last weekend. Now I see little dots everywhere again
The one cherry I had that was berried I found dead the other day. She was my last hope from that batch. I think I still have a couple males. I know at least 1 of the 20 I had is still alive. lol damn shrimp. I'm glad they aren't CRS's. I'd shoot myself If I got a bunch of SS at 100 ea and had them die.
