My Taiwan proyect

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is my Taiwan proyect. It is a 80 l aquarium. It is divided in 4 boxes.

And blue panda 21da9677e74dc9793402b3fd8aeb758d.jpg

 

Next one: red genetic. Red rubi and red wine and one full red head red bolt (or i think so)

And 4th i have male golden (F1 Taiwan) and no dark blue bolt. I AM thinking what can i do with this division.

 

My main goal is get extreme blue bolt. I have gotten very nice blue bolt of lucky way. So, i have my first question: besides select better colours BB, Now can i get then? KK x Golden (f1 Taiwan)?? Kk x blue bolt? Other?

 

My second goal is get blue panda. Again I have 3 blue panda female. Again it was bien in my tank when it haven’t divided. So i don’t know which were the parents. Again, besides select blue panda (now i Only have females) how can i get it? Kk x panda? Panda x blue bolt? Blue bolt x blue panda?

 

Have you got any link with Good info about advanced Taiwan genetic?

 

Any opinion about what to do with 4th box?

 

Thank you very much

Great photos and I especially like the blue bolt and red bolt. If you have a spare section you will probably want that for poorer quality or cull shrimps as you seem to want to produce specific colour and quality shrimps.

Unfortunately I can't help with the genetics questions (which is the majority) as mine were all put in together and mixed up? Hopefully someone will be able to give you advice on this aspect. 

If you need any specific shrimp I imagine these people are pretty much the EU 'specialists', though I have never actually used them (though been most tempted)-

From the photos they are almost all females?

I agree those 2 look like males,  oops, assuming you meant the red ruby (all red with one white splodge on the back) rather that the red wine, not sure about the red bolt? Alsao the right hand panda looks male?

You may like this video on this link on how to tell them apart;

      Thanks for that, I think I will try that just so that I know, though I don't think they will be going back into the tank now. Will be good to know though whether they were the reason. Simon edit 1hr later - I have done this, and also put some of the water in a cup to test the water itself, will leave both a week and report back. Ph was 5.5 when set up

      My guess is a fungus, so remove it as much as possible and do water change (slowly). The common causes of fungus are overfeeding (left over food), something that is decaying (plants or animals), or something emitting sugars, like driftwood.
    • beanbag
      acid test them or leave it in a glass of remineralized water and check its pH again after a few days.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      All the other parameters are stable and perfect, and the newly filtered remineralised water that goes into the tank when doing a water change is Ph5.5. I use the dennerle mineral double in place of salty shrimp as it is easier to use being a liquid! I do 10% water changes each week. It is a bit baffling to me but as there is no obvious problems at this point I am not too worried but will probably get some new substrate ready, just in case. The substrate that is in the tank is a year old and as mentioned the only other unknown that may have caused the problem was I had 3 geodes in the tank, which are a type of rock? Simon

      I leave the sides and back alone as well and the shrimplets seem to come out onto that a lot and IF there are new borns that is the only place where I get to see them. When you do a water change you need to add in the new water very slowly also, most use some sort of dripper setup. It may just be that the setup wasn't established enough, that is what I put my fungus down too anyway. Mine wasn't really anywhere that I could remove it but it cleared in less than a week, but if you can remove some manually I would do that.I imagine just adding the shrimp may cause a small/temporary imbalance as it then has to adjust again, if that makes sense?  Hopefully you won't loose any more shrimps, and I wouldn't worry too much about the fungus unless it just keeps getting worse, as I have had this happen a few times with newish tanks and it has always just cleared up in about a week.
