Yellow shrimp I have found have a tendency to die for no reason. I can keep high grade CRS, CBS alive but never had much luck with yellow neos. Not sure why either.

I bred red x 3 yellows I had left. I ended up with wilds, yellows and reds. Culled teh reds and wilds and did so for generations. Then worked on intensity of yellow. Took years, but they are incredibly hardy.

It is also how I came up with the theory that the same color of shrimp (Ie. red) resides on different loci since others have tried this same cross and wound up with only wilds.

I threw the 4 yellows I had in with cherries so maybe I'll have the same results. Gave up on them so going to try this.
