    Default Blue CRS

    I traded my friend today for some CRS and he gave me a few Blue looking black bees that he swears he breeded. I just want to know are these for real these are mutated from his black bees.

    After looking at them for awhile I think they might be a mix between tiger shrimp, and black bee.

    Hi Gabe,
    there are no blue diamond/bee shrimps, not even cross-breeds with blue tigers.

    Your shrimps is a normal bee shrimp which is stressed. It will loose the dark blue coloration soon and it will become black again. Lots of these bee-like species show a blue coloration when they are stressed e.g. bumblebee shrimps, too.

    The blue tiger shrimps from Germany are a special domestic strain, which was developed in Germany. A cross with bee shrimps won't produce blue bee shrimps so easily. The blue tigers are no simple mutation but there are several genes involved and it took years to develop them. This makes it a bit hard to re-create them.

    best regards

    Robert

    Gabe,

    I think your friend screwed you over. The Black Bee shrimp you showed is just a typical C grade shrimp. Please tell me that you did not trade your A or S, or SS CRS to him for a few of the ones you have right now.

    Do you have any evidence or is that just an assumption? The blue color could well be a one-allelic trait.
