Myth about half siders / double face shrimps

IMG_1674

Though hardly anyone will believe it, the phenotype of halfsider/ two face on caridina shrimp  will inheritable trait.

This is my double face tank and I have crossed Taiwan Bee halfsider with “normal” Tibee.

Those Tibees had never had half siders / double faces in their pedigree but I got  half sider (30% of offspring) Tibee/ Shadow Tibee in F1 generation..

It’s a fallacy, that  apply inheritance rules of other animal species to shrimps, without proof.
