2nd generation reds from chocs

Recommended Posts

smicko

Hi all, just thought I would throw a few photos of the 2nd gen. I'm umsure as to how they will eventually turn out but they are around 3-4weeks old and looking more orange than red at the moment.

Thanks for the comments, they are very orange at the moment but I am unsure if it's due to the lighter coloured gravel or if they will colour with age. I will be changing to a pure black gravel soon and painting the back wall black, so see what happens.

gbang put some pics of yours up so we can compare.

Cheers mick

I would consider rephrasing that especially with the rumors of gbang going around. Lol!

+1 LOL....

Smiko, are they 8-10mm yet ? If they still remain orange, and if you want something to compare with, I'll send you a sunkist for a true comparison.....:-)

Bahahaha you guys are evil. I will put pics up ASAP. They are currently in a bare tank so it will be really good to see their colours without dark substrates. I will move them soon and ill take pics again.

Beautiful shrimplets you have there smicko! It would be really interesting to compare the colouring of your orange babies to a pumpkin/sunkist (I still don't know if those are different or the same xD) shrimp :)

And I'm drooling over the blue rili! ;)

Thanks for the nice comments and the cheeky ones too lol. I really should think about how I word sentences.

Bb they would be around the 8mm mark. I have one or two that are a brighter red buy most are orange.

Jess. The blue rilis are my greatest achievement so far I cant wait for them to grow and breed.

Cheers mick

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
