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.

      I recently made the switch from sand and SS GH/KH to SL-Aqua substrate and GH only minerals (from same company - liquid form). When I switched everything over, I didn't even acclimate the shrimp. Knock on wood, I haven't seen a loss yet! It's only been a few days. Everything in the tank is the same except for the substrate and water. Also cleaned the sides and front of tank while I had it taken down.   It's a 10g tank, so I remineralized two 5g buckets of water, one of which I slightly over-remineralized. Figured it would work it out as I had tossed in some water that wasn't remineralized to the right parameters just to keep the plants in there wet. One bucket had been sitting around for a while with just RO water and the other only a few days before adding minerals. After everything has settled, it all worked out to about 7.5/8 GH which is about what I was aiming for.   I can't say I'll continue getting the liquid remineralizer right now, but we'll see with how this one does. Powders will always be more bang for your buck with how much water you can remineralize with it, but the liquids are supposed to contain more nutrients in them that are beneficial for shrimp.    Tank has Caridina (YKK and ???) and Neocaridina (Bloody Mary) in it.

      Coming from a pet bird keeping hobby, I can easily back up what jayc said about imports.... not only can you not import animals, you can't export them either. The *ONLY* exception may come between New Zealand and Australia. Some animals can be moved between those two countries. Otherwise though, import and exportation for both countries is banned. I live in the USA.

      Thanks, Simon.  I am a shrimpnewb after all.  My tank has pretty much zero evaporation - it's weird, but it seems to have something to do with not running a heater and the water temperature being the same as the room.  I'm just planning to switch over to the shrimp focused mineralizer with water changes over time.  I'll update the TDS differences I assume will be there.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      This has got rather long and involved, interesting though! Just wanted to remind you that topping up tanks from evaporation will still need pure RO water (not mineralised) though so you will need to keep some Pure RO water aside for that. Simon

      Oh, yes.  Live and learn.  This is, as my wife keeps telling me, a science project.
