Thank you ineke ive just bumped up the temp slightly I think every couple of days ill increase it by half a degree till I get to 25 and hopefully that might trigger them into the mood im not sure what ill end up with but fingers crossed there should be some yellow rili in amoungst them

DIBS! I'll setup a second tank to house some of those things!

Are rili's just chance and selective breeding? Theoretically we could see Blue rili's and sunkists?

Well we have the carbons coming on, reds with blue genes, the yellows, overseas they have much more so the possibilities are there. Funny thing is some of us have very nice red rillis and yet we are chasing the Blue Velvets that they throw if they have the blue gene:encouragement:

Completely agree. I love a good red rili with a nice blue stomach. Id love to see orange rili or even a royal blue with a light body ive seen pics o both overseas they look anazing and totally possible so hopefully its only a matter of time

Am I mistaken in thinking that we can't get blue heads/tails with clear centers as the 'blue' gene usually effects the entire body?

The carbons are usually darker heads/tails with blue middles right?

I'd pay money to see a sunkist/pumpkin rili!

It takes some one with a lot of time and commitment and almost anything is possible. Plus willingness to cull anything not up to scratch:encouragement:

I'm too much of a softie to kull anything.

I had a hard time giving away my Pleco..

I've got 3 males here that DESPERATELY need to be kulled to allow my 2 good males to get some sexy time in. But I just cant bring myself to do it :p

That's why I put up the thread about foam boxes I gave away all my Red Cherries earlier this year and still have a few that were babies at the time no one is interested in one or two and its not worth the cost of postage but if I had somewhere to put the few culls every few weeks they would eventually build up to be worth offering to a new member just starting up.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon

      Evening Guys,    I had a shipment (small one) arrive today, but the sender has mixed my King Kongs and Black Pintos in the same bag. Is there an easy tell tale as to which is which? (rather small juvies) These are my first bee's and really wanted to keep things separate for now. Thanks in advance.

      Only anything smaller than a neon tetra. They are unlikely to catch them however. Bottom dwellers are most at risk. But if your pleco is larger than a neon tetra size, it should be fine. Just keep the Long Arm well fed.

      If you want some special local NT Shrimps, email me aqua.green(at)bigpond.com there are other small shrimps in the top end no one has tried.  If you can get me into Kakadu there are some really nice shrimps on and at the base of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Many would be good in the aquarium trade.   Kakaducarididae_revision.pdf
