    Thank you. Yes they are! You can tell the males already as they have the red/white/clear striping on them. :)

    Wow! Gorgeous shrimp, Junne! I'm sort of embarrassed at my plain brownish/clearish ones. (But I love them anyway! LOL)

    Aw! It's tempting because they're so pretty! But if they went in my shrimp tank, they'd just mate with the blah ones and have blah babies. lol!

    Maybe they'll brighten up the blah blah ones. Lol. Or I could give you a male / female pair ;)

    lol - they are all OVER the tank!!! Babies again yesterday so 2 sets this week! I picked up a piece of moss when I was feeding and they all flew out like white sand fleas!
    Funny to imagine that the father( mother died in birth ) who started it all with my first batch in March of babies and then their offspring have been breeding since!

    Funny too that you thought you weren't going to be able to end up having any luck with RCS.

    Thats the thing! I only had 1 male and 1 female too! What are the odds???????
    Now I have more than what I know what to do with! Luckily I have a friend who will take a few and the lfs. I'm not ready to part with them just yet though............ :)
