Blue Bolt has just had her babies but confused of babies genetics

Recommended Posts

My female just had her babies. I’ve seen some that look like crystal reds, blue bolts, black pintos, and some sort of golden pinto. I wasn’t aware that a blue Bolt could have so many babies that were completely different from each other and their mother. My tank consist of other various grades of BB and blue mosura. I did have some OEBT but they were only in the tank for a few days and I switched them out to a different tank with a higher gh.

What other kinds of shrimp do you keep in the tank?  What could have bred with her?

If your tank only has blue bolts in it, I would assume they are mischlings that happen to look like blue bolts.  Pure blue bolts will not throw all those other phenotypes.
