    Default Up Grading crystal red shrimp

    I have a few questions regarding to breeding crystal red shrimp.

    1. Is it practical to get a couple of Very high grade crystal red shrimp like S n above to cross with Cs and B grade and try getting offsprings that are of higher grade thn their lower grade parents hence improving the overall population grade over time.

    2.Will out-crossing with Bee/diamond(Of acceptable grade >A) improve the grade of the crystal red shrimp??

    Any help from the experience people here are gladly welcome.

    1. Generally, that should help. But if the gap of the grades are too big, you will need a few generations of refinement to see result.

    2. It is alway good to use compatible or higher grade diamond. If your diamond is too low from the general pool, you will not get much improvement in pattern but color. If you have much higher grade diamond, you will get in general a few more offsprings that is higher grade and better color.
