Whats up with my TB shrimplets???

Recommended Posts

JPN07

The first batch of TB babies i got looks like jelly. First i thought they were still too young and thats why the colour thickness weren't there. But after two months they are still the same. I heard it might be my WP but the second batch of TB babies has the normal TB colour thickness. So it might not be my WP.

I did a little research on the net and I found some pics and articles that are similar to my TB babies.

What's your PH & KH JP ?

The blue may represent a low GH/Light, and green a low PH. BUT If they maintain those variants, that'll be fantastic. If your 2nd batch is coming through normal, then perhaps you've got some cool morphs coming through....Great work JP..:applause:

Hi Marcus. I have just checked the wp, KH 0-1, GH 4-5 and PH 6.0. I use a single 4ft T5 light, its on for 5-6 hours everyday.

It would be cool to have new morphs in our awesome hobby :) But its still a long long way yet but who knows someone, somewhere in Australia might have started it already. That would be awesome :encouragement:

G'day BB, here is a lil update. The colour are still the same and they are not getting darker. I think they might be getting abit more greener. I cant find the jelly KK anymore (dead maybe) :(

1st batch panda and 2nd batch panda. As you can see the 1st batch is still greenish and the 2nd is a much darker panda.

Cograts to this shrimplets - in fact not all greenish and bluish Taiwan Bee change coloration in interdependence to pH and KH. Some breed true and keep the color. Good luck!

      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!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?
