I am curios how a cross-breed would look like between the galaxy pinto and the TB.
Does anyone here have a picture of the cross-breed? I would love to see how they look.
I have looked every were but can't find anything about them.
About six months ago I got ten Crystal blacks and ten OE-tigers.
The CB turned out to be mischlings and every batch has produced a couple of Crystal reds and one or two Taibees.
I have no idea of their heritage and if they are F1, F2 etc. but so far I have KK, Panda and I think a RW.
Also, the CR:s, through a 10X loupe, look more brown then red but I am colour-blind so that may be as it should but one TB is absolutely chocolate brown/white. What is this?
My plan is to sell all the tigers and try to build a colony of Taibees and possibly Titaibees.
How do you suggest that I do this? Should I keep a couple of the adult skyblue tigers to get up the numbers and possibly make some Titaibees or should I just keep the taibees separated and be patient?
My goal is not to true breed or create a great line but rather to have fun and get some interesting looking shrimp.
A rookie mistake on a hot melbourne day (it was above 40 degrees yesterday). My tanks got a little too hot yesterday as I closed the door to where I keep them and thus prevented the air conditioning hitting that room. As a result a couple of TB female shrimp deaths and to make matters worse when I got home I left the lid off my breeding external box to give the water more air/oxygen. This morning I woke up and found 2 TB's had tried to make a run for it and had jumped out of the breeding box and were dead on the floor.
Great thing about keeping shrimp is that you learn the lessons the hard way!
