Tonight i did a massive cull of my Green tiger cherry program and removed ALL males and ugly females and have

chosen this Stud to further the program as i think he is the best hope a successful line.

Only problem is i seem to be slowly loosing the tiger pattern and getting more solid? i dont mind but really like the tiger strips so might have to

start a new tank and breed backwards again soon....

Anyway i still love this one :)

it wont be before xmas i think. there is only 6 left now in the tank after the cull. 1 male and 5 girls.

once im really happy with the color and they are breeding 100% true i then need to breed good numbers so everyone

can at least get a few so the price doesn't go to high :)

Wow, the intensity of the green is really starting to come through. I personally prefer a more solid shell, rather then the tiger pattern...espacially since the wild type cherry having this characteristics, the stripes just "dirties" the look......hope Im not sounding vicious. LOL, it is 4.30am in Perth ! BUT, if you do have any green with tiger stripes, I'm sure everyone on this forum would have em.

Keep it up Dean !

Got to agree with all comments, these are absolutely stunning! I suspect a lot of us are going to need new tanks this year.

@BB go back to bed mate. Although a late night and a few beers and I'd love to see ya comments then ;-)

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank

      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon
    • DNTM_Shrimp_Breeders
      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon
