Dan's Cherrys

Recommended Posts

Dan

Hey guys,

While I was doing a water change yesterday, decided to get a few quick pics of some of the cherrys I'm currently keeping.

2 colour variations from Dean's Pumpkins, looking forward to seeing how their babies turn out.

Thanks Aquathumb and Kitz! :)

Unfortunately I don't think any males are in there Kitz. :)

History of the cherry reds is I first got them when they entered the market a few years ago and someone got them over to WA in a group buy.

Lost interest and chucked them in the pond and then they multiplied like rabbits and only recently I took some out to start up again and this is how they turned out.

The few who have been to my place are generally surprised at the colour they are from being brought up in the pond. Not sure if it is just environmental factors that made them go that colour but they are just normal reds. :)

Thanks

Dan

I was one of the lucky ones who netted some red cherries out of the pond and they were wow !

Interestingly, I found a red rilli in my pond during Xmas, that must have accidentally got chucked in the pond from my tanks when I was trimming my mosses...she was super bright red...must be the natural algae etc...the hot her so bright and big....now, she's not as vibrant s as she use to be, but a nice specimens nevertheless.

      Gotcha. I’ve really been eyeing some ,”Fire Reds,” or some,”Blue Dreams,” from LRBretz, those are out of this world.

      Does anyone know if these are in print anywhere? They don't seem to print nearly enough copies to meet demand, issue after issue sells out and is gone forever.
    • Blue Ridge
      I wonder why that would be? I'd think an oak is an oak wherever it's growing. Perhaps a result of me leaving them in the sun? It's not a big issue, once they get soaked they become pliable and soft it's just a head scratcher...

      AFAIK, only crystal reds. FWIW, Rob at Flip imports the vast majority of his stock. Price of success, I suppose. He can't breed them fast enough to meet demand. He's very open about this and a great guy to deal with. But I wouldn't buy Caridina as imports when they can be had (much) cheaper home bred from a hobbyist. Mischlings might be a good way to go, you'll usually get a variety of black and red crystals F1, depending on what they were bred with. And they tend to be a little hardier like tigers, though still more fragile than most Neos.

      Thank you so much! I was trying to go through the standard settings menu, which is disabled. Fixed now!
