Crystal red/black = brown? (sell or feed)

Recommended Posts

Hey! I've been keeping crystal shrimp for a while now (reds and blacks). But now I've found I have a few - 8 - brownish ones (some people call them light black :) ). I'm not sure if it's from the reds breeding with the blacks, but anyway - is it wrong to try sell the brown/light black ones? Would anyone even want them? or should I use them as feeders? I'm thinking about just keeping reds from now on anyway as I've only got a couple blacks left (have a lot more reds).

All my shrimp would be A to S grade.

Interested to hear your thoughts?

no worries - I hope to not use them as feeders. but the main reason for this thread is to seek some feedback on if it's good practice to sell shrimp that aren't a true red or black? what other people do???

I think people call them coca cola or something when reds cross with blacks . Honestly I've never seen them for sale so I don't think its good practice for a value point of veiw.

Browns come about because of crossing between CBS and CRSs, I actually quite like it, we have some great browns

but yeah, most people only want red or black. Bit expensive as a fish food though. If you have a good quality brown

there are no problems crossing it back with a red or black to improve the offspring.
