Results from Wild Type Breeding programme

Recommended Posts

A little while ago someone asked what you could expect when you breed from Wild Type Cherries!!

I have had a tank online now for around 9 months This tank was only stocked with 19 wild type cherries sourced from my Red and Sunkist breeding programmes. no other stock has been added. A number of generations are now present and I am amazed at what is starting to show up. I took a few crap pictures this afternoon just to show what can happen. Sorry for the picture quality, NOGGI WHERE ARE YOU! ENJOY!post-277-139909851434_thumb.jpgpost-277-139909851439_thumb.jpgpost-3452-139909861629_thumb.jpgpost-3463-139909861632_thumb.jpgpost-3463-139909861636_thumb.jpgpost-1840-139909851443_thumb.jpgpost-1840-139909851448_thumb.jpgpost-1840-139909851453_thumb.jpg

Yes it has a gold tinge to it , there are several shades of red, green, yellow, brown, blue and two blackish :rolleyes: obviously someone from way back must have been playing up:confused: I am just going to let them all stay happy together and see what else shows up.

      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.
