    Those are signs of panda/bkk before they molt, well for me that is. Blue bolt can be obtain not because of that tint.

    @Eddy if you don't mind me asking what soil is this that you are using, grains look nice and small...

    What should be the right way to achieve blue bolt? I have been keeping CRS & PRL but never really touched into KK or BB... the most exotic I have is only WR which i am releasing as well because I want to concentrate on CRS & PRL... But out of my curiosity, hope you can teach me..

    I would like to know what soil is that as well, it seems nice and balanced with the shrimps...

    Hi MananaP, The soil you see is Akakadama 1-2mm on top and the 2nd layer is Akadama 5mm.

    @ Alvin, The last picture of the taiwans you see a tiny blue bolt.
    The blue bolt is the result of crossbreeding snow white with a BKK, in F1 you only have cr/cb looking shrimps as you probably know, F2 will show you BB if you're lucky.
    Wish you lived a bit closer to me instead of the other side of the world, I'd be happy to exchange some BB's with some PRL

    I hope to have fellow shrimp hobbyist to trade shrimps of good quality too..

    It's all about selective breeding and getting nice offspring regardless of lineage of PRL.. But PRL is only special due to the traits of the different lineage (correct me if I am wrong)

    I have some sample photos of PRL of other breeders to show if it's allowed by the TS.. Then you can see those nice PRL from other breeders in other countries.. *drool*

    Hi Alvin, you don't have pics of your own PRL? Because I've seen some pics from Silane & B E N I B A C H I (can't post the name)for example with bloody red legs... Man I'm so in love that my wife is jealous
    I'm only selective breeding for almost a year now after putting some lineages together, the result is good but it can do way better then this.
    But ey what's a year with people breeding for years...
    Be my guest to post some but remind this is a taiwan topic.. maybe you can post a link instead.

    This is my own PRL... Sorry for lousy photoshoot, I am a bad photographer.. Haha






    This is from Crimson Taiwan PRL/PBL




    (I am not promoting Crimson shrimps.. Just to show fellow hobbyist what we can do upon selective breeding *I hope*)

    The color of your shrimps is very nice but correct me if I'm wrong I don't see red legs... They're still beautiful but the pics from Crimson do have red legs, that's what I'm looking for now but I don't know breeders having them. Untill I found them I'm trying to breed them myself but for now still dreaming...
