The Choc Cherries are conitnually producing various colours of shrimplets...several of the blue shrimplets eventually turned brown, but notice 3-4, 12mm shrimps staying a vibrant blue.

The availability of the chocs are great, as it's given anyone the ability to produce variations, and a great start to a breeding program....a major part of the fun of our hobbies eh ! Improving quality and securing a variant ! Had 2-3 orange cherries too...will take some pics of them tomorrow.....

PM Dean....I originally bought 2 pairs off him...there are other members here that also have the chocs, otherwise there's me all the way over in WA......

I've always love the CRS/CBS, TB's etc...and until I got the chocs, and it produced these varieties.....I just want all sorts of colour, patterns etc now (the mad collector in me is bursting out).....some of the shrimplets are transparent, and even with tiger type stripes through them ......

We should start a variety thread of cherries...and maybe swap particular varieties with other members so that each member can start a selective breeding program ? i.e. if I have 3-4 blue cherries, and 1 purple cherry (No I don't, but just as an example), and another member here has 1 blue cherry, and 2 purple cherries, then we'll swap and say I get all the blues, and he gets all the purple ? May get complicated, but in the true spirit of this forum, perhaps possible ?

Hmmm, Can anyone sell me some Choc Culls? Like the ones you dont wish to selective breed? Would love to start a selective breeding program.

      Thats interesting that you feel the same in USA with it being a much bigger country, I had thought that maybe it was a lot more difficult/risky transporting live shrimps because of that, and assumed it takes longer, or is ridiculously expensive? Thanks for that, most interesting. Simon

      When you say a ghost town I hope you don't mean the shrimp are dying off? When I set up my Betta tank I think I mentioned the soil was fighting with the water and I was getting PH of abut 6 for a few months and it has crept up more recently. The culls I dumped in there were fine at the low PH etc so I would be amazed if that caused too much of a problem! If you now don''t have any shrimps in there maybe I would put the rock back into the tank so that can speed up the exhausting of the buffering substrate and it would probably be safer to wait until the substrate isn't buffering before buying any more shrimps as a precaution for a while?  Oh I see JayC beat me to it........ hopefully what you mean then is the forum ghost town and not the tank?

      Not the best photo of the fish. Have you checked your water parameters?
    • jayc
      Yeah, there was an issue with SKFA forums or the servers its on for many hours. That would have been why no one was around to respond.   That rock was buffering the pH. Now that it's gone, the water is returning to it's normal pH range. Well normal but for the substrate buffering it lower. You can try adding a small piece of the rock back in - that's one quick option.

      Hey guys, I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my female rocket killies has some sort of disease or injury on her side, and I have no experience with fish diseases at all, so can I get some help with working out what it is and what to do about it? One of my female endlers also has a little white line on the end of her tail, and I just noticed this as well. Please help me with identifying the problems and fixing them.
