Strange female

Recommended Posts

I've had the girl since I started my shrimp tank.

Any clue as to what might have created this gem.

Has it been that colour since little?

Or has it changed recently?

I got her as a berried female. She released all her babies into my tank. Some of the babies look just like her.

She has looked this way the whole time.

She came out of a tank that had blue carbon rilis.

Here's on of her daughter's.

Way different.

The Offspring is referring bad to its base colour. You can consider that as a good thing (you are getting a new colour morph). Or a bad thing (you are losing the Blue genes).

I think it's a good thing. 😁 The picture does no justice. There are two that look like that. It's like their carapace is red but the have blue under the red.

Here's a photo of other babies that came from the same blue red female. Here you can see many variations.

Well that's fine then.

Some people don't mind the multi coloured shrimp tank.

But if you want to maintain the strong blues, then you will need to move the reddish ones to their own tank.

Finally got a decent photo of the baby that looks like her mom.

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
