    Default Do royal blue tigers and black tigers breed true?

    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering if anyone knew for sure, that is royal blue tiger shrimp or black tiger shrimp breed true or not (don't have blonde babies). If someone could let me know that would be great because I am interested in purchasing some royal blues. Thanks,

    -Matt

    Your breeder should tell you before hand if they breed true.
    That is sometimes a prerequisite to purchasing from a specific breeder. That his shrimp are breeding true.
    Good luck

    It depends on the what breeder you buying from like qc discus said. Some strains are unstable(like german oebt which throw out some blondes at times) or quite stable like morganas midnight prince(which is an btoe).

    In my 2.5 years experience with black tigers (actually BTOE's) The colony that I have has a Royal Blue gene in them so I see royal blue babies & they don't throw blondes to answer mattsoccer20 query but I am no expert.
