Cross Breeding Shrimp

Cross Breeding Shrimp

Postby Noof » Thu May 31, 2007 9:24 am

Does anyone know whether there have been attempts to cross breed cleaning shrimp? Say bloods with Peppies? Might make for an easier to raise shrimp?.
I know that it may be slightly impossible though?

Doesn't work. Even different populations of L. wurdemanni don't interbreed very well.

I think he says that different peppermint species (formerly believed to be all wurdemanni)don´t interbreed.This is quite true,and a useful tool to find out if two similar peppers are conspecific or not.

What I mean is that if you take two Lysmata wurdemanni from different locations. Yes the same speices. They don't exactly interbreed all that well. Still writing the paper. Different species will fertilize eggs sometimes in some crosses, but never hatch.
