  • Fire shrimp bred......also: Super red cherries shrimp and low grade cherries

    I managed to get some fire red cherries recently.



    They also bred(see fry in pic).

    More info:

    Grading is a bit like with the Crystal reds.
    Same species as Super Red cherries and normal cherries it seems.
    Folks are selling them for 8-10$ ea.

    These are the Sakura RCS I think. They are as easy to breed as RCS, so really prolific. CRS are much more hard.

      They are a grade up from Sakura's.

          Cherries are going through their own defined grading system I guess like Crystals..........

          It'll be ironed out in the coming months I'd suspect.
          Several in the USA claimed they where a different species and they did not ship any males etc.......

            After about 3 full years of culling my colony (not very aggressively, I'll admit) of rcs, I didn't get anywhere near this result.
            It seems like the East will always be ahead of us in fresh water shrimp breeding haha.
            I'm still working on improving my snowball colony's genes, though. I'm sure they will go through something similar as CRS, CBS, tigers, and now RCS as well. I have a good amount of snowballs that have solid white spots on their sides. Only time will tell if anything comes of it.
            Once again, nice shrimp. I love how bright they are.

              They are mighty red, much more than any RCS's of any sort I've ever seen too.

              I'm glad they are the same species really, RCS are bullet proof.

              Now if they'd breed them to get them 2-3" long etc.

                Did I see in that thread that you posted somewhere that the guy in Indonesia selling all of the shrimp also had giant red cherries? I wonder how big they are...

                  If it's like the CRS, the higher the grade, the less resistant/less prolific they will be. High consanguinity due to selection favors abnormal individuals sadely

                    Well mixing some high grade Sakuras with them will still yield nice critters.
                    The Sakura grades are pretty tough.
                    Also, as is the case with all F1's bred in your own tanks, they tend to be much tougher.
