View Full Version : RCS color variation crossbreeding

has anyone kept the yellow and red variety of Neocaridina heteropoda (aka Yellow Shrimp and Red Cherry Shrimp) together? What do the offspring look like when they intermix?

(yes, I know it's not technically crossbreeding since they're just color variants of the same species, but you get the idea.)

You'll get brown, more naturally coloured, shrimp.

so I suppose with a mixed population, you'd lose the "purity" of the red and yellow lines after a few generations and pretty soon everybody would be brown.
