breeding blue cherries from only one blue shrimp

Recommended Posts

.So long story short i purchased a small cheep 2nd hand tank including the livestock pretty much only for the shrimp which are worth more than i paid or the whole tank. most of the shrimp are low grade sunkist but the tank was overstocked with fish and very dirty so we will see if they colour up. Anyway there is one female blue cherry of pretty good colour. now my problem is I have no blue gene male. i was thinking about breeding her with a different colour male and back-crossing the offspring with her.

so my question is what should i expect to see in generation 1, 2, 3 etc and also what male would you think best for this? i have red cherry males, yellow cherry males (with good colour), poor quality sunkist males and some wild type from red rilli x yellow
