Shrimp ID help

Hello guys!

 

I need some help with Tiger shrimp genetics. My Tiger shrimp got for the first time shrimplets, she was in a Taiwan Bee aquarium (red ruby, red wines, pandas, shadow bees, kk and a zebra black pinto) but there was also a male Tiger Shrimp so I have no idea who got her berried. The shrimplets are now almost 3 months old and some have a more redish color, others a blueish hue and others almost no hue at all, is this normal if the male was the regular tiger? 

 

Here are the shrimplets:

I had no Blue tiger shrimps at that time, is the blue color a recessive gene or could these be tibee?

Given there was only one male tiger and many more TB types, odds are that these shrimp would be tibees. Would explain the mix of colours in the offspring too.

Certainly looks like some tiger genes in those patterns.

But odd colours for just regular tiger. So I'm with Fishmosy too, a tibee.

Thanks for the replies guys! :)

Do you guys know if the blue color on tigers is recessive a bit like the red vs black on crystal red shrimps?

What colour is the parents? I could work it out if I know the parents colours.

These were my only tigers at that time, they look regular tigers.

      Great shot of Big Mama!  I reckon, 1 week tops for hatching.

      Great photo and news. The eggs are fading yellow but there are eyes so all looking good and there are a lot of eggs! Probably about half way ready to hatch.

      Let's hope the big mama can lay safely those eggs

      Sorry, I'm not in that area. 🙃   I prefer Glass tanks. Acrylic scratches way too easily. Often while cleaning algae off the sides. And once it's built up enough scratches, viewing gets obstructed.    Often going with LARGE tanks, you start to fall into custom built stands. So don't be surprised if you cannot find anything suitable.

      The easiest way wouod be to go to an aquarium shop and get a tank with a cabinet made for that tank, as that should be able to support the weight, as water in any large quantity is very heavy. I suspect it would have to be a glass aquarium at that capacity, otherwise the plastic would have to be very thick. It is possible to use a non aquarium specific piece of furniture but as you say it is quite risky, though I did help a friend do that by strengthening a nice decorative piece of furniture they had that they wanted to put a 350L tank on. It has been doing the job for 10 years but also bear in mind water marks, and we had to varnish many coats to make sure water doesn't soak into the wood etc. Its not really worth it in reality, it cost a lot of money to buy all the wood/stuff to strengthen it so was probably no cheaper, and a lot of time doing it. It may be dearer to get a combo tank and stand but much much easier and safer, and only you can know what ones you llike the appearance of? I would start off going to local stores and seeing if they have any you like, and even if not it will give you ideas?
