What a good day. I hadnt seen my oebt girl for a week or 2 and then i saw her with no eggs. I spent the last couple of weeks i was straining my eyes looking for babies. I came to the conclussion that she must have dropped her eggs. Until today i found 2 babies with a very destintive orange eyes. Im so happy to have found babies now to keep them alive and hopefully there are a heap more in the moss. I'll update a picture as soon as i can get a picture

How many did u loose mate. Are the blues clear when they are first born. I thought they may end up blondes.

. I assume they are clear when first born amd develop colour later. This is my first batch. Mother was light blue and father was dark blue. I cannot see tiger stripes at present.

Marcus and Ninja would be the best people to answer.

During the flea bombing the casualties were in my taiwan bee tank. Male blue bolt, female king kong, a few mishlings...

Some of my loses were expected. Ive got so many baby taiwan bees coming through now to repopulate.

I cant wait for the tigers to grow up. Good luck with yours!

Thanks mate i will hopefully end up with a good amount of blues to add to my colony. I have no idea how many there are. The more i look the more orange eyes i see

Yeah, OEBT's are clear on birth, and develop their colour as they mature. OEBT juvi's can colour up late too, and appear blonde initially.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?

      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?
