Hello and thank you for allowing me to join.

I am long time Shrimp Keeper/Importer/Breeder. I started back in 2000 with Cherry shrimps, then went on to Crystal Shrimps and when I tried to find other shrimps to keep I found there werent any others in Ontario! So I went about to find some interesting shrimps to bring to Canada. I started with Yellows, Orange, Blue Neos, then Tiger shrimps, and finally OEBTs. I brought the very 1st OEBTS into Canada! Many of the current Breeders purchased these from me.  I produced a specialty Shrimp from Red Tiger shrimps x Tangerine Tigers that were Orange/Black/White striped that I called BENGALS.  Ive been out of the Shrimps for a few years now, concentrating on breeding specialty Guppies and Bettas, but now with Covid Lockdowns I am back into the Shrimps.  Ive got some OEBTs and Crystal White Bees along with Red Fancy Tigers/Super Reds that I will be crossing for another interesting type.  Stay tuned.

Welcome to SKFA.

A real pioneer of the hobby. Glad to have you with us, and hope you impart some of that knowledge here in the forums.

      Thanks Simon I don’t think I will have any issues giving them away I just thought I would offer them here first. I’m a member of quite a few Facebook pages - there is a SA one as well- I can offer them on those pages too . Biggest problem is the people who come and get them and then sell off again. I really want to be able to stress they are culls from culls . If I can’t find homes for them I might just buy another bath and put them outside LOL  I’m quite surprised my Tangerine hybrids breed outside too. We get very cold winters and extremely hot summers here. I guess the large surface area allows the water to cool down.

      Those are lovelly pretty shrimp, you are very lucky to be able to keep some outside! It was interesting that you do the same regime of RO water + gh+ outside in the pond. You can try posting in the 'for sale' section of this site, https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/forum/148-selling-forum-livestock/ and/or try gumtree (below link) may be worth a try, https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-pet-products/cherry+shrimp/k0c18438?view=gallery I haven't used it myself, but they don't do post so is only for pick up I believe? I think it is free as well so worth a try???  Simon

      You are of course right that the tank should bed started afresh and if none of this batch survive I won't try any more until I can do a fresh start! I do have the substrate ready to do this but now isn't the time to do it, though I wonder whether it ever will be......... I am pleased to hear you are getting babies, even if they are lower grade, you are heading in the right direction. Blue bolts are  probably my favourites of the taiwan bees. Simon

      Hello again,  Just stopped by to wish you good luck, but if not, may as well break down the tank and start over completely. I hope someday I can have a mixed tank as nice as yours.  So far, most of my shrimp babies have been low grade blue bolts.
