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?

      Hah! LOL, how did I know. If I was going to put a bet on one or the other, it would be the rocks from Phillip Island ... from the beach. How to test? do the vinegar test. Take out a bit of gravel, and a small stone. drop some vinegar on them to see if you get a reaction. Alternate test is to put them in a cup of water. Test the water GH and KH before adding, then test again after a few hours to see if KH and GH have increased.

      ahh shoot. gravel was washed about 20 times thru, and rocks were boiled. gravel was sold as aquarium safe gravel, but the rocks were from phillip island, along the beach... how could i just test 1 or 2 to see if that's why? (they're all the same type, but i have a few big ones that r heavy and a bunch of small ones that i can test with)
    • jayc
      That means you have something else in the tank that is leeching carbonates - like a rock, or gravel or shell grit.

      eek! I've been trying to reduce the hardness for a few weeks since i noticed it was high. I'm in melb, and my tap water is relatively soft, but it doesn't seem to make a difference to the hardness when i do water changes. I've been doing up to 40% weekly (on average maybe 30%) but have barely seen improvement... I'm using water that's already at about 23 degrees from tap, would it make a difference if I used just cold? (I've only measured cold tap, not heated as i didn't think it would be different). Otherwise if I could get RO from somewhere would that help? Thanks!
    • jayc
      Those parameters are getting too high for a killi. Killis definitely prefer soft water and slightly acidic, pH under 7.0. Irrespective of what disease it might have, it would be a good idea to start reducing pH, GH and KH slowly now. Where abouts in VIC are you? Melbourne's tap water is generally very good for softwater fish. If we can't ID the disease, start with an all purpose cure, like malachite green.
