Where do carbons fit into this? The other charts I see have them as a separate strand to brown/black, but am I right that hey are in the choc/black branch on this one?

If anyone has the missing pics, high res prefered, please let me know.

@waffle, with my previous colony, carbon rillis descended from my blacks which descended from my chocs.

This is actually the reason I opted not to use the breeder marketing terms such as "blue dreams" etc.. in our chart. I rather opted to note the lineage so that you know that blue isn't the same as blue from another line.

yeah it makes it a lot easier!

So now we just need blue-from-red photo to complete the current set? blue from red rilli would work yes?

Looking good.

Sorry to be a pest but I was wondering if the real wild type cherry really carry so much colour and that dark? I know in my own tanks what I call wild type don't tend to have as dark a colour or as good a coverage.

Eg.

Sorry about the clarity but it gives you the idea of what I mean about the patchiness of colouration. I do have some with even less colour/ markings but they tend to disappear against any background and kind of take on the surrounding colour like a mirror.

Yeah, it's a bit hard as all we have to fall back on are the results of a coloured variation regressing back to a wild colour. The pic I used was the result of a black cherry being released into a yellow colony. If someone has a pic of one from their natural habitat that would be ideal.

I like this chart as it is very easy to understand where all the colour variations come from and how they came about, I have one carbon which has a blue hue to the clear parts

According to this chart, the bloody mary comes from the shoko, not from the chocolate.

Does the "Brown" in the new chart means shoko and chocolate?

What about snowballs? I've been trying to find info on them but taxonomy changes over time.

Sorry not the best pic. 

Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. white ??

Cheers, Yeah I looked at that, just renaming over time gets confusing, is that the current name? 

From my research of them they are a close relative to the N. Davidi, so that chart looks quite complete and correct.

What I've read says they are a colour morph from N. heterapoda, is that the old term for Palmata or something? 

So is this the correct name for snowballs now:

Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. white ?

N  cf. zhangjiajiensis = N palmata

N denticulata sinensis = N heteropoda = N davidi


To my knowledge, N palmata and N davidi are the current and correct scientific names, however there are many places that still use the old/incorrect names.


So snowballs would be Neocaridina palmata var. white

 

 

It's also from my understanding that none of the "cherry shrimp" family trees are correct, but they come kind of close. We've still got a lot to learn about them!

As helpful as pictures are I was wondering if there is a written description of the different colour varieties, much like what would be for say a show dog where desired criteria must be met in order for it to be grand champion worthy or pet quality. I ask because I am seeing many people selling "blue dreams" for example but there seems to be a great deal of difference with regards to darkness of the blue or clarity of the blue. And many of the sellers are either correctly claiming the shrimp are high grade or wrongly duping ( Not all but some and some could be doing it by accident too from not having a definitive accurate description to go by) new buyers who go on to breed said shrimp and sell on the offspring guessing they are high grade because they purchased high grade.

      You're doing fine so carry on as you are until you feel the cycle is done. My normal schedule is 10%water change every week however I don't think you need to do any while the cycle is going on until/unless the nitrates or ammonia get too high, or the PH gets too low. The lower the Ph the slower the bacteria reproduce! As you only have 2 shrimps they won't be messing the water enough anyway at this stage, I hope they are still doing well? Can you take a lower resolution photo, or reduce the photo size on a computer? If you want to email it to me I can reduce it for you lavissimon@gmail.com - I had to do it often in the past.. Simon

      Ok I will continue to add fluval cycle every other day starting today. I have a piece of driftwood I could add which will lower ph too. Should I only water change once a week? Also, I have 3 java ferns, some small almond leaves, and driftwood. I can’t upload a picture due to size.
    • Crabby
      Do you have plants in the tank? And sorry for asking multiple times, but can you send a photo of the tank through so we can see the setup? 
    • jayc
      Yes, just right.   That's good news. It looks like there is some bacteria in the tank and it's processing the ammonia. Nitrates are building up however, but that can be reduced with water changes. Continue using the Fluval Cycle at every water change, ie. weekly. Just keep working on reducing the pH slowly.    
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That temperature is perfect! The wood and any Indian Almond leaves will be a slow (and that is what you want) PH reduction. It looks to be going well, the main thing is to change things very slowly if everything is otherwise ok! If the shrimp are active and investigating that is a good sign! Simon
