Hi all,

I have opened this thread for detailled discussion on so called Tigerbee's. A Tigerbee is a hybrid shrimp of Tiger shrimp and CR/CB Shrimp. As far as I know some people say it makes a difference if you crossbreed a simple Chrystal Red or a high grade 'Bee Shrimp' with a Tiger shrimp. I experienced problems with my Tigerbee's yet in the F1 because berried females always dropped the eggs. So my suspicion raised that these shrimps are infertile. It is reported that these shrimps are sensitive in general too. Therefore I would be happy about your stories!

Hi Imke,
and what is about the males?

Yes, perhaps the males were not able to fertilize the eggs...

Sometimes you must try different sets.
