Mischling Genetics/Breeding query

Recommended Posts

Squiggle
Thanks Hoang. So all F2+ will be pure TB?

Not necessarily, you could still get mishlings after F2 if the TB is from Mishling genes, what Marcus was saying is that two generations after a Mishling TB breeds true, all shrimplets are TB, then you should, in theory, be able to say they're pure TB. Hope this makes it clear as mud, hahaha :encouragement:

Just image, u have a misling F2 might contain 25% gene of crystal, 25% or bluebolt, 25% of kk and 25% of RW. If that F2 mate with a Bluebolt, then offspring is F3 which have higher % genes of Bb(greater than 25% on F2) and others genes % will decrease. If you keep doing that again and again, you will end up with higher % chance to have Bb than KK and RW and Crystal (in this case is Mis).

I've got a bunch of F4 mischlings only. Whatever that comes out will be a surprise :victorious:

From what I understand, Mishling x Mishling will go backwards & dilute the TB genes, there is a very slight chance of getting a TB but more likely get all F3 Mishlings :encouragement:

Well I'll see whatever comes out of them, as these are Dean's lovely F4 mischlings. I've seen shadow pandas out of the same tanks ;)

Don't get me wrong, I was just talking about what should happen in theory, I'm sure whatever you get will be very cool &, fingers crossed, you'll get a nice surprise or two :victorious:

Better off picking out all the females and buying a spare male off someone.

Totally agree. I'm happy just to be back into the hobby, and excited to see how these will breed out...

      I would get a few if you like them, the odd loss of a baby shrimp wouldn't really be a problem. There are lots of shrimp people that have the dwarf Corys with their shrimps.As you say, it maybe better to wait a bit until you have more shrimps first but the cory doesn't hunt shrimps as food!

      I think that the shrimp in the photo is a female! Great you got the slots sorted so quickly and easily. The good thing with the amano is that they won't breed so you will never get more than you buy. Don't get too many though (may be the 5) as they are bigger and will out compete the cherry shrimps for food. Don't forget that there is postage cost with ProShrimp below £39 (I think that is the figure??) so bear that in mind as if you are close to that and you buy a few more shrimps you will get more shrimps for the same cost by not having to pay postage - f that makes sense? The other option is the tangerine tigers as they won't cross breed with cherry shrimp but you get a different colour - those are out of stock at the moment though! You need to be at home next day to sign for the package. https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/tiger-shrimp/563-tangerine-tiger-shrimp.html Simon

      No nothing special. Just get them the right water parameters and that's it. @Grubs might have the perfect water parameter requirements for DAS, so see if he can list them. Otherwise, I used to keep DAS in water that was ph6.8 - 7.0, KH 4, GH6 and TDS of 200-230 and 25DegC.  These shrimp from QLD seem to handle slightly higher temps.

      Yeah tangerine tiger shrimp. I don’t think I would even mind that much if they procreated cuz I NEED MORE SHRIIIIIIMP!!!!  (And the offspring would be cute) Do they require much skill to take care of? (Either)
