Something Good Today

Recommended Posts

wayne6442

Guys, Today I have had a very good shrimpie day, my day started off with an early morning surprise with the delivery of my chocolate shrimp from Dean, They arrived at the unheard of time of 8.30 am. All settled in well and happy in their new home, Thanks Dean and Good onya Aust Post.

Second good thing, remember back on the 23rd I posted a thread about a stranger being in my orange shrimp tank, Well today!! I found at least four of these strangers in my the same tank, I was able to catch two of them and take the following pictures, I will try and catch the others tomorrow night and take pictures of them as well. They are a bit smaller than these two, which shows me that some of my orange shrimp are doing something different. my orange shrimp are the result of my line breeding from red cherries, so these guys are also the accidental result of my line breeding from red cherries.post-29-139909857375_thumb.jpgpost-29-139909857379_thumb.jpgpost-206-139909857382_thumb.jpgpost-206-139909857386_thumb.jpg

Thanks everyone, yes I hope to be able to breed the blues. I will see if I can catch the other little ones tonight and put them in with these, Dean told me that the Chocolates carry very strong blue genes so i hope i can inter breed these with a chocolate and see what happens. I will be scanning my orange tank every day from now on to see if anymore blues show up. EXCITING prospects!

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
