With a species like this, you have a lot of power to control just how good your breed will be.
Some breeders just let things run riot and allow everything to live and continue to breed. We do things differently.
- For a start we breed Red Cherry Shrimp alone from 3 separate tanks, all from different blood lines. This allows us to routinely mix up the gene pool and ensure that the fellas don’t become too wildly incestuous.
- We frequently add shrimp, selectively sought from third-parties to add to the the genetic line
- We actively cull off poor quality shrimp don’t worry, they become active feeder shrimp for our Axolotls. Many go on to live for months / years however don’t breed in that enclosure due to temperatures.
Why are we telling you all this? Well, other breeders just may not care.
LFS rarely do anything other than let all their RCS and other variety of shrimp run riot and breed out of control. 2-3 in-bred generations later and the shrimp are already suffering.
They’re weaker, last for less time and usually have lighter colouration. If you buy from us, and want to breed yourself. Ensure that you freshen your genetic pool up every so often by buying from somebody else. Your stock will thank you for it.
