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.

      It must have been an aluminium heatsink. The Indium in Liquid metal will eat through aluminium. Only copper or nickel plated heatsinks can be used with liquid metal. It says so on the packet, at least my pack of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut does.

      I will try to add all the old tank's shrimps at the end of August to the new tank, had a problem with my chiller this morning, try to make it more efficient by adding a better heat sink grease, I added a liquid metal grease, apparently you can't add liquid metal, when heating up, the heat sink turning to dust, along with part of the cooler inlet and outlet. So far the shrimps are ok.

      I have had the new shrimps a week and have ordered some new ones(10) for delivery friday. There are probably at least 6 of the 8 alive (they may even all be alive still) but as the tank is so densely planted it is difficult to tell, but I saw 2 black and 2 red this morning, as yesterday, but I'm sure 1 red and  1 black weren't the same as the ones I saw yesterday so there are probably at least 6, if that makes any sense??? Anyway that will be it for now and I will just let the tank and shrimps do there thing once this batch are in there in a couple of days, and I can get back to the usual routine as was, before this unfortunate event wiped out the last lot. All parameters are good, including the nitrates now, but there are a lot of brown patches on the plants and moss balls still......... It all looks a bit drab and uninspiring and brown!!! I probably just need to be a bit more patient? I will do some maintenance tomorrow and a small 2L water change, then the new shrimps will go in on friday after acclimatising. The shrimps were totally uninterested in the spinach or shrimp lolly I put in at the weekend but I am assuming they have so much biofilm at this stage that that is keeping them busy and well fed and they are staying under cover until they get used to their new environment and this strange ugly monster that keeps peering in at them through the glass from time to time? I guess if some 100ft tall bloke kept peering through my window a few times a day I would be a bit nervous/reserved shall we say? I removed the spinach and the shrimp lolly and put the shrimp lolly in the betta tank and within minutes there were 10 shrimp on it so there was definitely nothing wrong with that shrimp lolly!

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