Well done mate, your gene pool is amazing, that is the BIGGEST factor having the gene pool to work with, with out the close gene pool its a slow process.

I have tried with other thing and until you get the genetics its an up hill battle.

Once again well done and keep them coming

In my case it's all LUCK. Never, and haven't focused on cherries, as mentioned by you Bob, got a great gene pool from Dean, so started the journey with excellent stock etc..

Luck or not, you are producing the shrimp that makes the jaw drop. As a community we need more people doing what you are doing to solidify colours and strains, rather than just leaving them to become washed out.

If I have read right you started with Chocolates from Dean? What size tanks do you put your breeders in?

When I build the fish house 6mt x 6mt, I have the glass to make separation tanks for selective breeding, I guess I will have to do more of them for Cherries and put the word on Dean to buy some good stock.

All my tanks are between 25-60 l, although the WP are not "perfect" for cherries, they don't seem too fussy, although I'm sure if I boosted my PH, KH, GH & TDS, I'll get them breeding more efficiently. But that's not my goal ! A 6m x 6m fish house .....shrimp house sounds heaps better. LOL. Please do put a thread up on the built.....sounds amazing already.

Hey BB, just want to know are the black cherries stable? Do they throw out 100% black shrimplet or chocolate?.

Will try to find a suitable mate, and see whether I can lock down it's genetic's. Will need to search the tank and see what other surprises I may have.

My black cherry program is only F1/F2, so still in it's infancy, and generally throwing out black/brown, grey/black and black...so hopefully in a few more generations, the stability will improve.

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
