    The red gene is the recessive gene,
    I think it works that crsXcbs=cbs and regular brown coloured young with the offspring all carrying the recessive red gene and there young comingout a percentage of red due to there being 2 lots of the recessive gene being present :)
    Breederd cross cbs and crs (outbreeding) to improve the crs grading the re-inbreed the red colouration to fix it.

    Not all sulawesi species are small,
    Harlaquin (caridina cf. spongicola) are 1cm or smaller but cardinal shrimp and goldflake shrimp are similar in size to adult female cherry shrimp with some reports of adult amano sized ones. THe latter 2 are the easier 2 species to keep with spongicola being near on impossible.
    As mentoined, they need soft water (3-8dgh) with a ph of 7.8-7.4 and a temperature of at least 28 is recomende for the sensative species and 26 for the less sensative ones.
    They crop up occasionally, spongicola - £3.50 i think they where but most would die VERY fast.
    cardinal and goldflake vary from £12-£22 in the uk.

    Amazing to read, nobody do realize all these nice DR Red and Black do have the same parents namely. NeoCaridina Cantonensis bee shrimp. Because of mutations the Cristal Red and Cristal Black starts to exists. And yes, they also bread with eachoter. No problem with this. Because of seriouse very strong selections, and here the Japanese are very tough with, the nice colers from these days do exists. Why'll the neoCa. Cantonensis really is worth to have, it is difficult to find them. I try for a long time but without succes so far..

    Black is dominant.

    See this article (yes it's french but the hybridation table is easy to read) : "Hybridation" Red et Black crystal

    So mixing CBS & CRS in the same tank would end with 75% CBS newborn.

    Great shrimp pics. My goal is to have a single different color shrimp colony for each of my tanks. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and 'Purple' but I guess Cardinal shrimp will be a good substitute. Then throw in some CRS to mix it up. Harliquin shrimp (middle pic) is stunning. Good luck with your shrimps and hope that you have many babies---R
