Thankyou :) You'll notice that in a couple of Pics the largest fermale black cherrys are berried - so hopefully lots of little blacks to come ;)

Great work pappyy3, great to see so many hobbyist trying to improve the quality/colour of shrimps....the humble red cherry shrimp has fallen off the quality rail recently, but no doubt many are also trying to improve on this.

Were your blacks out of the chocs originally ? Are the shrimplets coming out 100% blacks yet ?

Thanks Bluebolts. Yes the blacks originated from the chocolates. Funny thing is I'm getting close to a 50 per cent mix of blacks and browns in the offspring. Ocassionally they will throw a handful of nicely colored Royal Reds as well ...

That's great pappyy3, on the right track. Out of all my chocs, blacks...etc, and with all the shrimplets out of all the batches, I've only ever had one royal red ! Other hobbyist like GBang who agve them away, seems to produce them quite easily....just luck of the draw huh.

      Those parameters are perfect! I think I experienced the same with the algae on plants when I restarted the caridina shrimp tank, but mine seems to have almost cleared up as well - taken months though. One of my failed attempts with tap water many years ago I had PRL and PBL and it did look much more interesting than just the one colour. They didn't live long enough (maybe 6 months) to really know what the offspring would look like though they will still be red crystal or black crystal  so they should be fine together. If one colour does become more dominant then you can always get some more of the lesser coloured ones anyway in the future.. I did get red babies but no babies lived very long as it was tap water! I would try transferring just some shrimps (may be a third) over to the new tank if you are sure it is cycled and see how they go in a week before transferring the rest over? You won't want too many in the tank anyway if you will be messing about with plants/layout still and you won't loose the whole lot if something does go wrong? Maybe also put the Amanos in the new tank for now so the ones in the old tank won't be fitting with them any more for food? Simon

      Update. I filled the tank, unfortunately, there was some melting of plants and some light hair algae( algae is only on the leaves of some plants, nowhere else?). Adjusted my light schedule and intensity. Things are looking better. Did a 70% water change, remineralized with GH+ powder, and clean tonight. Levels are as follows:   PH: 6.4 Temp: 75 GH: 6-7 KH: 0-1 TDS: 140   Wondering  when I should transfer the shrimps... I want to order 10-20 more CRS, and I’m considering mixing in some CBS. I’m not concerned with selling these, so it would be neat to have two different colors. I know the Black coloration is dominant, but, from what I’ve read, I’ll still get reds from offspring in two-ish generations. Someone said expect 25-30% reds. What do you guys think? My  additional plants haven’t been delivered today, so thats a bummer.

      Thanks, the ol' iPhone 6 rarely makes me happy, but if you take enough sometimes you'll get one good one!

      Nice shrimps, I like that blue bolt in the 7th photo, I want one, I also just purchased today another 8 Red Wine to join my other 3 in the tank, along with one amano shrimps and 23 thai micro crabs.
