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.

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
