If one was to put 100 S Grade CRS together, and let them breed as they want, would they produce s grades only, or would it eventually be full of lower grades too?

Sounds like an interesting project.

IMO - You will get drops of S grade, lower grades such as A and B's and perhaps some higher grades as well (SS or even a few SSS if you're lucky ;) ).

Really depends on the genetic background of the shrimps you will be putting together ..........

You would be better off selecting the best specimens you raise from each drop and breed them together to maintain the quality of your shrimp colony

All the best with the project

agree with Pappyy3, i also think you will be hard pressed to find anyone that can/will sell 100 S grade crs that are actually S grade. and even then i can guarantee they will produce a mix of offspring as 98% of shrimp people keep there tanks with a mix of grades.

Thanks Guys, I guess some Quality A grades would suffice ;-) it'd also allow me to start with a larger colony for the same outlay :-)

I started with B grade's and the B Grade females are regularly putting out A-SS quality. even with crappy parents i seem to get great offspring. i believe the water quality has a lot to answer for, also the genetics of the shrimp. i have some culls from others that must have come from higher grade parents but look B-A grade but again regularly throw S+ v band, Tigertooth with nice white and Deep Red.

      It normal for.the heat to go back to the tank, the copper block is suppose to absorb the heat and take it hot water to the radiator with the fan to cool the heat, since the tube came off, the heat goes back to the block which is suppose to carry the cool water to the tank.

      Usually temperatures in cellars are pretty constant (if it is underground)? I can confirm that even branded heaters can cook the shrimp (learnt that the hard way), it happened to me so a controller is a good idea. If you are that bothered about the temperature being the same and the cellar does fluctuate a lot you may also need a cooler, depending on where you are based?  Simon

      Very sorry to hear about the tank overheating and wiping out your shrimps! Can you get a 2 plug adapter and have the heater and cooler plugged into that overheating safety device as extra security? I now what happened is probably just a freaky thing (who would expect a cooler to heat the water?) that probably won't happen again but you won't be happy with loosing the crabs???? Hopefully the shrimps will be ok with the micro crabs (beautiful red wine in the picture)? Most of the stringy algae has gone in my shrimp tank so I will do maintenance tomorrow, tests at the weekend and if all is ok I will order the (final) red shrimps next week. Thumbs up for perseverance! Simon

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️
