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.

      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.
