Just wondering whether anyone has a Snow White Rilli Selective Breeding Program ?

Great to see a few members breeding them as I'm curious to see whether we can secure the rilli pattern and get them breeding true ?

No worries mate. You've helped me and many others just with the advice you give, let alone the endlers and bettas.

Plus them snow white rillis look awesome and the only to get them in one of my tanks is if people like you and bb can get them breeding true.

Cheers mick

I saw a photo of these the other day, the look amazing.

I'd be interested to know what they came from aswell

My one came from Caridina Cantonensis, so they are actually a Crystal Bee i.e. CRS, CBS, GB, SW :victorious:

WOW guys it floors me all the colour variants turning up in Australia, I don't look on O/S forums to see what is around because I cant have them, so I am very happy to see goodies turning up here.

Keep the good work going all you guys turning up the I want stuff

Wow quite interesting... So the rilli mutation isn't specific to neocardinia heteropoda. Has anyone seen this mutation in another type of crystal, ie CRS rilli or a maby a TB rilli? Just think a BB rilli.. I'm not picky but Ill just take a pinto rilli lol....

unless these shrimps were born with this trait I'd say they are just loss of colour from old age?

      Okay so I haven't done a water change in weeks because I thought the TDS needed to get closer to 150 before changing and my TDS meter continually kept reading 108 to 114. Sho I went and bought a new TDS meter and it's different from my old one.  The new one vs my old one: my water in tank 147 vs 103, water using the correct salty shrimp mix to RO water 88 vs 66. So I'm going with the reading on my new TDS meter.  So it's time for a water change.  Should I replace the water with the 88 TDS or put some more mix in until it's above 100 (since CRS parameters should be 100-200)? Thanks again everyone

      i had a significant drop in PH as well, so i think thats accurate. I havent however checked my readings yet and will do that later today but i have NEVER had Amonia (NH4) readings in either of my tanks. my Prawn is also growing fur and my tank is growing a healthy layer of biofilm that i want to clean off but think is a bad idea? I think adding the items from the other tank have helped things along with regards to the Biofilm. I've just done my normal maintenance except on the large tank as the TDS kept creeping up to 265 so i did several extra water changes at 0TDS to get the tank down down to 230 and added BB.

      Thank you both so much!  I have struggled.  I will change out the substrate.  Thank you again!

      I tested the tank yesterday and TDS 178, GH7, KH1, no ammonia or nitrite and nitrate 25 still (daily). I will keep doing the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate daily for now and I have got 8L (one third tank) of new water to replace on thursday, this in theory will get the TDS to about 125, GH about 5 so those should be about perfect for a start! The Ph was 5 and this makes me a bit sceptical it was the 6 I got last week!  I haven't had this nitrates problem (reading) before but I am hoping that may correct itself when the plants are a bit more settled. There also hasn't been any ammonia readings yet and I think I will just remove the cooked shrimps (it's growing fur) if there isn't any reading by tuesday??? Simon

      Good to hear you have got this sorted out! They are cheap to buy and I have one that does temperature as well, like you. Usually 'I believe' if they are inaccurate it may be that one of the prongs may be bent and so you may be able to bend the one which isn't straight to be straight but as you have a few I would just discard the one that is wrong!
