very Nice Marcus, do you need achieve them by breeding Specific shrimps or do they just pop out once in a while when you cross them with OEBT xOEBT? cheers

Not 100% sure, but the info on the net says OEBT x Black Tiger (as it doesn't gave the tiger stripes), not sure though. I'm just wishing and hoping it pops out from my OEBT's......been praying each day to my shrimp mantle !

Not quite sure what you're b*tching about BB , that looks awesome.

Maybe not quite as dark as it should be but awesome nonetheless :encouragement:

That's one sexy shrimp BB I want to dedicate one of my sections in my rack to OEBT!! Do you keep these little guys in Benibachi with thesame wp as TB for eg? Not sure if that was a stupid question Haha. I've come across info on the net saying they need a higher gh and tds is all.

DG17 - Tiger shrimps in Europe are generally bred at a lower PH, vs Asian breeders. Thus with acclimatisation and generations, the they'll be successful with both end of the PH scale (i.e. 6.4-7.4). As I have TB's, and X them, I have kept the tiger shrimps at the same WP then my TB's...... using Benibachi soil etc..... just makes it easier in the long run.

Hey BB, are you sure the stripes are not just the shell overlapping?

Not exactly what you wanted or not, that is one seriously pretty shrimp, and I would love to have a shrimp the colour of an antique blue glass bottle.

I know it's not yours BB but that is spectacular, how long do you reckon it will take before you pop one of those out? If anyone can do it you can! :encouragement:

It's kinda of a guarded secrete internationally, but the rumours out there is that it's a OEBT x Black Tiger......I don't have a black tiger ... :-(, but will selectively breed him...I have 2 more juvi's similar I think...just waiting for them to grow, and hopefully I have a female ? Fingers cross....

What? There is actually a shrimp that you don't have? LOL! Good luck... we all know there is nothing to worry about if you are on the case, you'll have one before we know it.

Mods, just realised this thread should perhaps be with the Tiger section. Can you please move ? Thanks

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
