Wild Type Cherry

Recommended Posts

BlueBolts

Just wondering whether anyone has breed or X bred the wild form (clear, with tiger'ish stripes) cherry, and what the results were ? Just curious

This is a shrimp from a Yellow male x Red female cherry. I think it's a cherry, unless it is a chameleon. The black one on the right is a chameleon.

If it is a cherry, than Yellow x Red = wild type- generations of selective colour breeding gone.

I actually have a female that is very similar to the shrimp pictured, she came from a cross between a black male cherry and a dark red female. I think I also have a couple of younger males with her now. I am just waiting for them all to be old enough to breed and then see if their offspring are similar or other colours start emerging.

One thing I will say for them is that they are almost impossible to spy in even a small tank, their cammo is really good.

Got this wild type from a cherry tank.

He has bred with a solid red cherry.

Shrimplets due any day now.

Thanks for all the contribution to date...just keen on keeping an eye on any great variations we could perhaps work on ...

Here are a couple of pictures of my similar to wild type shrimp

I will apologise first up for the amount of snail crap in the tank, I have a losing battle with snails in that tank and I am loath to have another carrot disaster in the tank.

If you can;t spot this one its blending in with the snail crap to the left of the pale clump of food

DSCF3193_zpsf487e774.jpg?t=1360958594

Same shrimp different angle

DSCF3197_zps46197d96.jpg?t=1360958666

And again same shrimp just closer and it moved a bit

DSCF3201_zpsbe27b5a3.jpg?t=1360958741

There is a large ready to breed female in the tank somewhere but she wouldn't show herself

Squish with tweezers and feed them to the shrimp. Dont feed the shrimp anything else so they eat the squished snails.

      Tank doing great! Have a few Neos in the tank now from a friend who culled them. I’m counting 8-10 females berried, with several ready to drop any day based on when I first saw them berried!
    • wtusa1783
      Thanks. I bought the female berried. I want to start up a new tank for each I guess. Thanks for the help

      If they are orange neocaridina (most likely) they will cross breed and with time will lose the red or orange as they revert to wild type. If the orange was berried when you got her she should have orange offspring (assuming she mated with another orange). Having said that even having only one colour will revert to wild if you don't remove poorly coloured offspring regularly, I have that problem with my red cherrys as I didn't cull for years and they are probably 80% wild now (5 years), and that makes life difficult because they are hard to see when  they are brown or clear? If your orange mated with one of your reds then you may get good colour offspring but you are on that downward spiral as the genes get mixed/diluted. If you bought the orange already berried you can put that in a separate new tank for just the orange, if you are prepared to get a separate tank for each colour, but if the berried orange mated with your red shrimps those shrimplets could be any colour (they may still be red or orange) but it is going to be more complicated. The main thing to decide at this stage is do you want to keep them in separate tanks or all mixed, but if you go the route of separate tanks for each colour you will still need to keep removing poor quality shrimps to maintain the colour long term! Hope this makes sense? Simon

      O ok. They are the Sakura then? From my own research the Sunkist are neos. They are orange neos that’s what I know. Yes the female is berried. So what would happen with the orange Sakura and cherry?
    • jayc
      Was the Sunkist already berried when you got it? If that was the case, then the offspring would still be sunkist shrimp (ie. if you were successful raising the Sunkist offspring). Sunkist larvae apparently need brackish water conditions. Note: Sunkist are generally of the Caridina genus (Caridina cf. Propinqua). There is a Neocaridina genus called Orange Sakura.  So assuming the LFS has labelled the shrimp correctly then there is a lower chance of interbreeding. But people make a very common mistake of using the Sunkist and Orange Sakura name interchangeably and messing things up. But if that "Sunkist" shrimp somehow mated with the Red Cherry shrimp, then you would get diluted genetics, and some offspring would carry genetics of both Sunkist and Cherry. That means the offspring will be of poor quality eventually leading back to the wild type look.    Maybe a picture or two of what you have would help. Close up side shot of the shrimp please.    I'm going to borrow a pic from the interwebs (credits to whoever the original photographer is). The Sunkist (caridina) has a slight hump in it's back with distinctive white or red stripes. The hump is similar to Ghost shrimps. Notice the colour is a lot more transparent.   The Orange Sakura is more uniform in colour. Good quality varieties are less transparent than the Caridina Sunkist.   Of the two, the Sunkist is the rarer find.   Hope that helps.
