Too many males in the tank.  When they're doing the dance only the best male gets to stay.  What I look for in a male is solid white, and excellent pattern.  It's kind of hard though, males tend to lose a little color during the breeding dance, some do get netted back up to the breeding tank if they show unbelievable color in the cull tank.  Pretty much every male below SS will get put in the stud tank/hybrid tank.

I'm not farmiliar with the term "P.L.R."

What is their water parameters? any females in the batch and how many batches are available?

Thanks

PRL is pure red line, they are like crs so they need taiwan bee water parameters. Also the pure red line has no crystal white in them, so therefore they are just pure and their shrimplets that are born when bred are 100% pure red line shrimp. If I wrong please correct me!

PRL: pure red line, my original strain is from Ellen Wang imported from ShrimpUSA.com, well known breeder in Taiwan with many awards under her belt.

 

Parameters:

 

pH: 6.0-6.5, aquasoil amazonia, running a couple of bps of CO2 to lower pH

TDS: 125-175, top of with RO water, conditioned with mosura, shrimp daddy, and whatever I have on hand

Temp: 72-75

 

Unsexed shrimp (~1cm) available at $50 for 10+1, or $100 for $25+3.  ~20 batches available.  If I need to get into the adults I will do 1:1 ratio.

Sounds pretty good to me!  Also, has to do with lineage and bloodline in my opinion.  Any one can claim to have PRLs, but if there's no name or it's strain cannot be traced back your kind just have a normal CRS.  Pictures are always important.  Some other notable breeders: crimson, benbachi, lowkeys...  A lot of work gets put in by the breeders for a well known PRL strain. 

 

The strain I got is from Ellen Wang via an importer.  I am a small scale breeder, so you kind of have to take my word that I haven't mixed the strain.  Also, have to trust that the importer sent me shrimp that are directly from her.  With each person/transaction the reliability decreases.  Price also gets cheaper.  I paid $20 each for E3, you pay less than $4-5 depending on the quantity.

 

IMO, when buying shrimps a picture of the group of shrimp and descriptions is most important, since it reflects a pool of individuals being sold.  If you have questions ask the seller, if you are satisfied with the color and pattern in the picture pull the trigger. 

 

I have nicer shrimp, but nicer shrimp cost more money because I value them more!!!
