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

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

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!

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.

      Yeah, that would be about the max I would put into a tank that size.

      Yeah, mellis are extremely rare from what I've heard. Only seen them once on gumtree, but sold out by the time I enquired. Apparently some people have them from ANGFA meetings, and otherwise you can barely find them in the hobby.  Any idea whether I could fit 10 of any in a 5 gal?
    • jayc
      I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. They are all so nice.  As you said, signifer is easier to find. Don't know of any store selling mellis.

      Okay, the native tank is finally happening. Not at the fishroom, but as part of my new rack. I wanna do DRN, Chameleons, and maybe DAE. I really want to use some pseudomugils though, but I can't decide which variety. I'm thinking my options are signifer, gertrudae, mellis and tenellus. Leaning towards signifer because they're easy to find, small, cheap, and the closest out of all to Vic. I would really really love to do mellis though, if someone can direct me to a source? Would mean so much to me to breed an endangered species that I adore. How many pseudomugils could I fit in the tank though? It's a 5 gal I think, dimensions are 40x23x25 (LxWxH). I was told by a signifer breeder I could fit 10 signifer into it. Tenellus would be less of course, as they are larger. Plants are bacopa monnieri and vallisneria nana (locally collected), val triptera, glosso, and maybe a flowering plant like nyphoides spongiosa.  Planning to use a natural rock/pebble substrate with some sand mixed in. Probably will use some rock hardscape, will collect those from the yarra, and have a piece of driftwood I plan to use already. Just wondering about those fish. And @Dave, when do you plan on shipping plants, shrimp and fish again? As I was probably gonna buy most of the stuff from you guys at AquaGreen.

      yup, I read this thread before posting.  I figure there must be at least two traits that are passed on to make these patterns, but don't know what they are.
