Thanks their a start .... im in the process of moving poorer grade males into my cherry tank so I can breed the poor quality females with the quality males only. I have that no entry original ss girl, so hoping that I can refine them and then be ruthless culling the next batch of babies ... hope that makes sense om a total noob to selective breeding

Nice pics blackcat, very cool shrimp. :encouragement: Just a thought, it would be better to put one of each colour cherry in each tank & same with the crystal/GB shrimp, then you wouldn't have any worries with cross breeding, rather than putting them in together & not knowing if they've crossed or not. :victorious:

You can also double up in each tank. That's one color cherry with one color crystal.

Hm tank sharing chrystals with crs n cbs never thought of sherry with crystals... the cherry tanks despite all efforts remain very high ph 7.4-7.6 and the crs and cbs tank is 6.4...

I am getting dividera in there and in the mean time I will drop the bubs into one of my red cherry tanks and let em change the genetics in there for some fun.... :thumbup:

Most of us due to lack of tank space seem to double up ,just remember the cherries can withstand ph changes better than the Crystals so best put Cherries in the Crystal tank rather than Crystals in high PH .

Lots of people have sucess breeding cherries in ph 6.4. I would rather do that instead of mix cherries due to lack of tanks.

But you couldn't keep crystals in cherries tank with ph 7.4

Very nice rilli's , thanks for sharing the pics.

Yeah, the previous pic does look like a wild throw back, best to observe them over the next few weeks to see how they develop.

      Your Caridina should be fine with that PH, it may be the new substrate and setup causing it to be a bit lower than you expect but if my previous attempt is anything to go by it should creep up very slowly as the tank settles and matures! My prior tank setup started at PH5.5 and all was well, and the current setup is PH5 though the next colour change is PH6 so it could be anywhere between those figures???  Hope the berried female is still doing well, or has she had her babies yet? Babies will be microscopic and hide to start with. Simon

      My PH seems to stay so low anymore. I float around 6-6.2 at all times now. That blows my mind. Not sure why, driftwood maybe?

      The photo is not a DAS.  The only place I know that breeds DAS commercially is Aquagreen  for half that price.  https://www.aquagreen.com.au/catalog.html I do keep them and have bred them in the past but I don't have any excess at the moment.  I'm going to try and breed them again this summer.  They have marine larvae so are not easy but on the flip-side they live for 5 years or more and are hardy. The photo at that site looks to be a Paratya  which will also eat filamentous algae but not as voraciously as DAS.  My Paratya came in the mail from https://www.livefish.com.au/tropicals/shrimp-and-crays.html You can get them in local rivers but I find the ones from livefish do better in warmer tanks (Livefish are in QLD) - these breed in fresh water in your tank (easily).

      Oh no it’s magnetic... could be a problem with my magnet cleaner. Although, depending on the attraction I could just use the mag cleaner for the top 3/4 of the tank and get a scraper or something for the bottom.
    • Crabclaw
      Ooh I just found a sand that looks almost perfect, it even comes in the right package size for my tank. https://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/products/pisces-iron-sand It’s another Pisces & Oliver Knott creation; AquaIron. Says it doesn’t alter the KH/GH/pH/TDS etc. Only problem is it says it should not be added to established tanks due to... cloudiness?? What do u think about this one?  Thanks again for your guys’ help!
