That's not a blue cherry... This is a blue cherry!!!

Recommended Posts

Gbang

After three generations of reverse quality selective breeding from the blacks, I can now proudly say I am a contender of Australia's blue cherry breeding programme race.

BEHOLD!!!! The first female blue cherry I am happy with :) fire blue come at me!!!!! Got heaps of males but females the Colour always intensifies too much to black. I will put up a thread on the potential and Colour genes of black cherries soon :)

Enjoy guys!

Thanks guys!!! Definately cool bananas!!! Remember though this is just a beginning! Now I have to selectively breed her with a boy I like and it will be at least another 3-5 generations before I believe they will breed true. And for those who asked. This female was the result of three generations of selective breeding in a reverse direction. I first selected black cherries I observed to have a blue base instead of chocolate and continued breeding the blue based black cherries. After all. King Kong babies are.... Blue!!! So with the second generation I breed blue base with blue base and waited for a "low quality" black which is of course.... A blue :) and now to keep breeding in the reverse direction of Colour intensity.

      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!
