    Default Breeding Black Tigers

    Hey everyone,
    I am getting a shipment of Orange eye Black Tigers (super excited to get them).
    From reading on the internet i found that they are very fragile and survival rate of the shrimplets is low due to constant in-breeding. I was wondering if i cross them with Tiger Shrimps and then cross the offspring back to the Black tigers, will it be a good idea? Anyone tried this? Any suggestions
    Thanks

    If you cross black tiger with normal tigers you will have F1 shrimps with black tiger gene, they will look like normal tigers, germans call it "spalterbig". If you cross those F1 with black Tiger you will have theoretically 50% offspring black tiger and 50% tigers with black tiger gene..mendel law.

    Good luck.
