RCS grade and unknown shrimp identification

Recommended Posts

Hey'a!

Would love some help grading these two RCS. Don't know much about shrimp and determining quality, just had them randomly thrown into a few tanks to breed like crazy.

 

Would also appreciate identification on the shrimp marked X. What is it?

 

I think I only have RCS and Amano, but not certain. Maybe some ghost shrimp as well, had some donated to me. 

 

Thanks :)

Not an expert, but body shape is of neocaridina, the same species as on A and B, and, judging from cold red color of other shrimp, they could be from mixed breeding, and black is from some hidden genetic trait. Mutation is also possible, but unlikely, this is a rare event. See neocaridina colors chart, but color names are for known breeds, when a lot of babies are similar to their parents. You could try to breed yours and see what babies will look like.
