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.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
