Recommended Posts

2OFUS

After months and months of breeding ,culling and adding new blood line ,finally a nice result

we have been watching this guy since birth lol (1 or 2 weeks old)

watching with anticipation and hope

We prayed to the shrimp gods that it would be a male :)

within the last 3 weeks it has had a massive growth spurt

anyways here's a pic or 2 of HIM :)

could it be the START of some real true fire reds

lets hope

cheers everyone

enjoy

Thats a better shot. He has potential for sure. If you need a few girls let me know. I'm just about to take down our Red Cherry Shrimp

tank as we're cutting back and our big 8 foot tank needs to go!

Absolutely stunning male dude, that's a very exciting prospect you've got there, I hope you do produce the first true painted fire red in Australia, very well done! :victorious:

To be honest, it looks like it could be a young female to me. Let's hope I am wrong as that will be a stunning specimen if it is indeed a male.

Nice looking shrimp nonetheless.

Good luck and keep us updated.

Nothing like seeing a quality Cherry Shrimp. Keep us updated on the breeding program.

      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.
