My Taiwan proyect

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;

Some great photos of some lovely shrimps, thanks for the update.

I wish mine were doing as well but winter here now so not likely to get any babies for a while?

I think you can get blue panda from blue bolt x red wine panda


Really? Why bb x red panda? Have YOU got good results? I AM surprised

      We just had another 3-4 hot (for UK) days where the tank seems to have gone up to 26 and I think no shrimp died this time, though last time it got a bit higher the smaller shrimp died off so I guess they are more sensitive to the heat. I took the cover off the tank so that any heat can rise. I have just tested the parameters and they seem to be great, Ph 6.5, Gh 5-6, Kh 0-1, TDS 134 so aim to stop using unmineralised RO water from here onwards. If the remaing shrimp seem ok for another 2 weeks (as they have for the past 2 weeks) then I will likely get one more delivery of about 20 shrimps, 10 red wine, 5 panda and 5 blue bolts???? The shrimp that have survived so far are the blue bolts, all the pandas died off but they were the first added when the parameters were further off, and about half the blue bolts also died but they were very small  ones mainly and as mentioned, I think the heat did them in. So, it is looking quite hopeful at this point but I will make that final decision at the end of the month. If it is still going well and there are no more deaths I will order some more shrimps and look into getting some sort of fan cooling setup for future hot periods!  How is it all going your end beanbag? I think my Betta won't last very much longer, he is just sitting at the bottom and won't eat, lt can't be the water getting too hot as the shrimps are fine and the water likely only topped out at 28 degrees max. as with the other shrimp tank, as they are next to each other? There isn't anything visibly wrong with him other than not eating or swimming around as he used too.

      have a fan blow across the top of the tank, or get one of those U-shaped air conditioners that allow you to keep the window mostly closed

      I just watched the video again. With that tank I would take 1 of the sponges and put it in the left compartment (where he put the heater in the vid) and the heater can go in the middle section with the other sponge, so that would work well and be very simple and no extra costs or modification involved. The water level in the back drops either because the pump is set too fast (if it is adjustable) or mostlly just because the sponge directly behind the inlet slots is getting blocked. Somtimes just pressing the sponge insitu at the top will blow some of the gunk back into the tank, but you will probably need to take the sponge out weekly to clean it, though I imagine you would probably do weekly water change/maintenance anyway. The tank in the video is also quite good because the back is covered so that will help with reducing evaporation from the back working part, mine was open/uncovered at the back so evaporation was more of a problem. I freaked out when I saw the level drop in the back the first time, especially as I had a glass type heater in the back! If you only very rarely need a heater then you could just put that in the main part of the tank on those rare occasions to be safer? As you say, you have time to see if you even need a heater but I suspect you won't as indoors will be warmer than the outside temperature overnite, and I have seen vids on youtuube where some Australians keep Neocaridina shrimp outside all year with no heaters in huge tanks or even ponds, and I doubt there is anywhere in the world where the temperatures don't fluctuate between night and day so all creatures must be ok with that (within limits of coarse).  My problem last week was the same only opposite, overnite it dropped to about 13 degrees outside but inside overnite it rose to 28 because the sun had heated the roof etc all day, so I did lose a few shrimps then (but they are Caridina so not as adaptable or tough as cherry shrimp), only babys though strangely? Of coarse, it's your winter now, whereas it is our summer. Do you have A/C in the house for the summer, even Neocaridina won't survive much over 30? I only have a portable room one which requires a tube out of the window hense I couldn't leave it running overnight as it is a ground floor room!

      Thanks for the response and interest! I'm planning on ignoring everything about the filter media provided and will do my own thing. But yes, a simple idea to save shrimp is put the filter right next to the intake bit.. I hadn't thought about that and was already thinking about adding mesh... your idea is much better and straightforward.  In regards to heater, where we are in Australia it gets 40 degrees in summer, but we had -7 last week at night.. this morning was a much warmer -3! The heating in the office is a bit whack too... it seems to be boiling hot or freezing cold, so the heater is something i'll just play 'wait and see' with. I don't propose to stock for a while anyway so will have substantial time to monitor the temperature and see if/how/when a heater is needed.  I saw a short youtube video on the water level at the back.. I'm glad I watched it / you told me because if I went in without knowing I'd be freaking out the first time I noticed it.

      I had a very similar tank to the petworx one and they are very clean to look at and easy to maintain, but obviously you are losing some volume/floor area for the shrimps to inhabit. You will probably need to work something out so the shrimp don't get through to the back area, especially babies (sponge behind the slots etc) - you may be able to just move part of the sponge to that compartment looking at this video:  I would only get a 25w heater, I learned my lesson when my 50w stuck on and cooked the shrimps in my 35L tank. 25w should be adequate as you have a much warmer climate, in fact do you really even need a heater? One drawback with this type of setup is that the level of water in the back can drop drastically when the sponge starts to get clogged, though this is mainly only a problem with the heater which may break in insuficient water, or the pump in really severe circumstances. You will need to clean the sponges at least weekly.  The level drop in the back can look quite alarming when you first see it happening.  The other makes may also have the same issues? I would have thought nearer $250 as it already has a light and pump, and if you don't need a heater? I tried the 'let the idea fade away', but it keeps returning???
