So I'm getting 8 Blue steel from White Boa parents tomorrow. I see quite a lot of information on things like taiwan bee x tiger mischlings, but when it comes to two lines that are already cross breeds how do the traits manifest? Is it still possible to get a pinto and blue steel as visual genes? Or am I just likely to get percentages of each shrimps lineage rather than a combination of the traits.  My plan is to hopefully get some boas and work on that line individually, but if the possibility of blue steel white boas is there, it may be an interesting project for me.   

 

Any insight is much appreciated, I've been scouring for any information I can get.

Interested in learning about BOA genetics as well. It sounds like there's not a lot of information, or the information that's going around seems to contradict each other. BOAs are one of my favorite looking shrimps so I'd love to learn about how to best handle selective breeding to get a solid colony going.

I think line breeding is pretty straight forward with these guys as with other lines. They're essentially extremely high grade galaxy fishbones from what I've been able to discern, line bred for the larger pattern coverage.
