^^ What he said 8-)

True culls, as defined above, should be removed from the gene pool as it's not doing anyone any favours. Cherries are a good example of why we shouldn't give away or sell culls. 5 years ago we had really nice fire red cherries as well as yellows. Today, the yellow cherry is nowhere near as coloured as before and you can't find true fire reds. Instead, breeders have had to get Bloody Marry from Chocolate cherries to bring back a nice solid red.

Ok, slight change of direction. I’ll get him to draw up the rest of the patterns\grades and replace the current CRS classification chart with this. I’ll get me a new template that is more generic (not patterns) on the shrimp this grading chart should apply to. So, that means, I need to know which ones we are going to apply this grading to. So far I have:

  • CBS
  • CRS
  • Tiger Bee (do we need to be more specific)?
  • Taiwan Bee (do we need to be more specific)?

How big do you want to make the chart? Cause there are quite a few different varieties.

Crscbs, snow white and golden bees.

Then for tiger shrimp you have Oebt, tangerine tigers, red tigers probably a few others.

Tb you have blue bolts, ruby reds, red wine, king kong, panda, shadow pandas, hulks.

Discussion around the logemanni poster can be made in this thread:

 

OK, so for the next 3 posters, these are the ones with actual photos from cull to high grade and drawn image for championship. Focus is on colours rather than pattern as with previous chart.

Caridina logemanni Shrimp

  • Crystal Red
  • Crystal Black
  • Snow White
  • Golden Bee

Caridina mariae Shrimp

  • Orange Eyed Blue Tiger
  • Tangerine Tigers
  • Red Tigers
  • Others?

Taiwan Bee Shrimp

  • Blue Bolts
  • Ruby Red
  • Red Wine
  • King Kong
  • Panda
  • Shadow Panda
  • Hulk

What have we missed?

      Hello everyone, i need help, i have never kept shrimp before, but i wish to keep amano shrimp and a couple of aquatic snails, i need it to be amano shrimp because i don’t want them to breed until i become more experienced
       
      the question i’m asking is if anyone knows how to tell the difference between amano shrimp and whisker shrimp, i’ve heard horror stories of people getting the former or the latter when they wanted the opposite from uneducated petshop owners, and i have been told whisker shrimp are very aggressive, and i fear that if i ended up with any on accident that it would end badly for my other shrimp and my snails

      Re-posting here from The Shrimp Spot forum as I need help.
      Help, 40 litre tank has a ich (ichthyophtyirius multifiliis) / white spot outbreak.
      We've been able to separate the few surviving neon tetra into an emergency quarantine tank, with appropriate medicine for the fish. We had done this as we had noticed the issue practically too late as we miss identified the white spots as cotton mouth (which the tetra also have). We luckily quarantined the fish from the tank as  the ich reached its second stage as most have matured and abandoned the fish. This has become an issue as even if the neon tetra do not survive the treatment, I cannot re-add them to the tank and I don't want to keep the tank's environment full of parasites.
      Thankfully ich seem to not be able to effect the shrimp but the medicine we have for them is toxic to the shrimp and the plants in the tank, hence the separating of the neon tetra. I was wondering if there was anything I can do to the tank while the shrimp are still in the tank, as removing them isn't a viable option. We've been trying to get the temp of the tank to 30C and leaving it at that temp for an hour, however the tank's heater is verry slow and doesn't seem to be going up past 27C. From what I've searched 30C should kill of the ich without irritating the bloody mary shrimp too much (too many websites vary their recommended temp, so I wouldn't keep it above 28C long if we were able to get it that high) If anyone knows if there are any ich treatments or methods of killing ich that are safe for invertebrates and potentially plants I would love if they could suggest one.

      I found 2 gravid females in my freshwater caridina tanks. I am planning to transfer them to another tank before it hatch to avoid any stress. The eggs are kinda dark or black now. How long it  will take to hatch? Please give your valuable suggestions on when I should transfer them to another tank?

      Hey folks!
      This thread is intended as a documentation (and space to ask questions of course) of @Frosty and my venture into caridina shrimp. 
      We’re starting off this weekend with 15-20 mischling shrimp (tibee x CBS), and maybe in a couple months if everything is going well we can add some TTS or KK or pandas or something. 
      The tank is a 4ft, with inert gravel and rocks, lots of moss, Java fern (crested and regular) and assorted crypts, and a couple big pieces of driftwood. 
      Current parameters are the following (please advise us if you think we should fix anything):
      22°, 6.8 pH (we might try ageing our water change water with peat moss, so with a couple water changes we’ll bring this down to 6.4-6.6), 3GH, 2KH, and 0 nitrates, nitrites and ammonia. 

      We’re thinking maybe to make it more interesting to the average onlooker, we might add a small school of chilli rasboras, but that’s hopefully going to be it for fish. 
      The tank is in direct sunlight, so there’s a possibility we’ll need ottos at some stage.

      I’ll update later with photos and our plans. Please let me know if you’ve got any advice!
      Cheers!

      I recently put in an order for 12 blue dream and 12 cherry shrimp. The shipping was delayed, Harrisburg PA distribution is terrible. Took over 9 days for them to arrive. 0 DOA. Nice! Anyway I've had them now for I'd say 2 weeks. One already is pregnant! And I recently found a guest staying. I have copepods all over, I heard they are fine. I'm not sure what this is. Looks to have antennas, like a snail or something.

      Welcome to SKFA. It's a Macrobrachium of some sort. Those claws give it away. But don't know which exact species of Macrobrachium. Might be able to narrow it down to which species if we knew where the shipment was from. Where are you from?   Don't put this fella in a tank with other Neo Caridina or Caridina or Taiwan bee shrimps. It will eat those smaller shrimp.

      Hey all! First of all, thanks for the add!  I really appreciate it!  I hope I am not breaking any rules by posting this in this thread, so if I am, please relocate this post to where it belongs!!  So, about a week or so ago I got a blue crayfish from the local pet store, and they told me that this "Little Dude" (His name!) was sent along with that shipment in error and it wasn't identified, or at least the pet store didn't know what it was, or told me it was another type of crayfish.  After his first molt (Just last night and the fastest to complete one yet) he is a different color, slightly bigger, and I don't think he is a crayfish at all.  I am thinking he is a shrimp, but I am not sure.  If someone could confirm this for me, and possibly even identify what species of shrimp it is, that would be amazing!!  Please don't judge the dirty tank I have been working and then he molted so I haven't had a chance to clean it properly in a little bit.  I appreciate the help!

      Great news that everything seems to have settled down! When you do set up a new folter system, leave the old sponge in the tank for a couple of weeks while new one is running as it will be full of bacteria but the new one won't have any at the start etc!

      It's been awhile but things have been going ok. I got my water parameters back to around where it needs to be. KH back to 4 but I can't seem to increase GH past 5, even if I only add GH remineralizer back during a water change. Anyhow, the tank has been stable. I haven't seen many shrimp deaths or anything alarming. They are still consistently breeding. I do have to feed them much more aggressively, on a daily basis. I also started to add in mulberry and dandelion leaves for them to graze on every few days on top of the other foods. They are a bunch of hungry buggers. I need to swap to a more powerful filtration system than a sponge filter system. While the shrimp poop is awesome for growing my plants, the water has become dank and dark. I'm fine with tannins, but there are way too many particulates in the water. Going to swap to a mini canister filter system with a spin pipe to keep water flow low.. so things are going to get shook up a bit again, but hopefully it all stays stable.

      Simon, Thanks for your input. I will recheck my water parameters. Don
