Another New cherry variant created :)

Recommended Posts

Dean

most of you have all seen the green tiger cherry line i have been working on in another thread and this is sort of linked to that but

different :)

I was cleaning out some of the old GTC tanks that i had selected the best from already and had left all the cull and others in,

and i noticed a few weird and wonderful colors as usual (but there is never 2 to line breed from)

but then i noticed something very cool that i had over looked for the last 2 months :stupid:

and upon closer inspection i realized i had a perfect pair of a new color variation to begin work with :triumphant:

Now this is the first time i have ever seen this color pop up in any of my programs and whats even more surprising is there are a perfect

pair (male & female) to start with...

so happy days ahead for me :)

my good camera has a flat battery so sorry for the poor Iphone pic but its the best i could do tonight.

will try to get more shots soon.

this pic does nothing for the true color they show! but gives you an idea.

They are the weirdest aqua blue/green color i have ever seen in a shrimp. (so far )

yep as soon as the camera is charged up ill get some better pics. :)

i say the odds of them being easier to line breed because there are 2 is pretty good. i think if there was shrimp gods they are watching :)

They look beautiful! Love the colour on them, they look like the colour of the water you see around tropical islands.

I'm really hoping you can get them to breed true.

Please put me on the list in front of BB and 2OFUS ;)

Wow!!! I didn't think this new color would get people so excited lol.

I need to first cross the 2 I found and see if I can even get them to bread a small % true before

We all get to excited.

Cherries are hard work to get breeding true and it only takes 1 bad cross to ruin the line or put you back many months

In a breeding program :)

I'll keep you all posted with the progressand hears hoping they do well for us all ;)

      You're doing fine so carry on as you are until you feel the cycle is done. My normal schedule is 10%water change every week however I don't think you need to do any while the cycle is going on until/unless the nitrates or ammonia get too high, or the PH gets too low. The lower the Ph the slower the bacteria reproduce! As you only have 2 shrimps they won't be messing the water enough anyway at this stage, I hope they are still doing well? Can you take a lower resolution photo, or reduce the photo size on a computer? If you want to email it to me I can reduce it for you lavissimon@gmail.com - I had to do it often in the past.. Simon

      Ok I will continue to add fluval cycle every other day starting today. I have a piece of driftwood I could add which will lower ph too. Should I only water change once a week? Also, I have 3 java ferns, some small almond leaves, and driftwood. I can’t upload a picture due to size.
    • Crabby
      Do you have plants in the tank? And sorry for asking multiple times, but can you send a photo of the tank through so we can see the setup? 
    • jayc
      Yes, just right.   That's good news. It looks like there is some bacteria in the tank and it's processing the ammonia. Nitrates are building up however, but that can be reduced with water changes. Continue using the Fluval Cycle at every water change, ie. weekly. Just keep working on reducing the pH slowly.    
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That temperature is perfect! The wood and any Indian Almond leaves will be a slow (and that is what you want) PH reduction. It looks to be going well, the main thing is to change things very slowly if everything is otherwise ok! If the shrimp are active and investigating that is a good sign! Simon
