As I said Michael there are a lot of people here very willing to share their knowledge and happy to lend a hand. We have a great community here and have lots of fun along the way. Plenty of beginners to big time breeders so you should find plenty of interest. There are also fish threads that may still interest you. Hope you enjoy our forum.

      If that is the offspring, then the parents are unlikely to be PRL. I tend to agree with you. There are very few PRLs in Australia. And any that claim to be needs to show proof. PRL genes have to start as PRL. CRS that breed true after x generations doesn't turn it into a PRL. Neither can a Taiwan bee shrimp turn into a PRL despite how ever many generations. I've never seen a PRL with that sort of red colour. I have on Red Wines and Red Shadows - Taiwan bee shrimps. So somewhere down the line one of your shrimp might have been mixed with Taiwan bees and is no longer PRL. It just tanks one shrimp to mess up the genes of a whole colony.

      Sorry, missed this one somehow! The PRL look fantastic and the odd ones look part PRL and part Red wine/Red shadow in the colour. They are still very beautiful but ideally should be seperated to help keep the PRL clean if you can do that.  Nice clear photos!

      Hi SKF!   So I bought some PRL (or at least they were sold as such. These claims are dubious in Australia as people don't know much about the genetics, nor do they care as long as they can make a quick buck). After 8 generations of breeding true, I'm having around 1 in 200 throw a much darker red. They almost look like Red Shadows, but I don't know too much about those types of hybrid. Can anyone help with ID'ing the gene?   TIA (First 2 pics are the weird throws, second photo is their siblings and the last photo is the parents)

      Thanks for taking the time to do the update and photo. Very pleased to hear it is now going so well. Different plants have different requirements so you need to check they will thrive/survive with the setup, light requirement/co2 etc or just get more of what you have, there are various Anubias if you want some variety. The number of shrimp shouldn't affect what plants do well! Maybe just get one plant at 6 month intervals and have another go, things change in time and you don't need many in a small tank, and the ones you already have will grow over time as well. Good to hear you got rid of the scuds, I did the same, manual removal when I had them, but I caught it quite quickly and only had substrate in the tank!

      Maybe it’s time to give some feedback. I forgot the time I could see only 2 shrimps, since then the population has grown so much that I gave 30 of them a couple of months ago. Then again now I think the population went over 120 and I am giving again about 70 of them. Not sure why they died in the beginning, maybe they were quite old. They were fairly big! Or it was the planaria? I got rid of them and scuds. The second one was not easy. It was out of control so I emptied all the shrimp population from the tank and poured sparkling water for a couple of hours. Some scuds survived that! But eventually they disappeared in some weeks after manual removal each time I could see one. My only problem is that plants dont go well anymore.  xmass moss, dwarf hair grass and anubia nana go very well but other plants progressively died. (Not suddenly) - Is it due to shrimp over population? - the sparkling water treatment ?  - i can’t see other issue, i provide generous lighting, co, fertilizer (in soil and in water). I have a bit of algae but under control.
