My BlueBerry Delight's

Recommended Posts

Dean

ok so following all the resent posts and hype about the "chocolate delight" shrimp and the many color variations that are being archived,

i thought i would share with you all 2 of the blue shrimp i have been able to produce from the chocolates with a little selective breeding :)

these 2 are both male im 90% sure but super strong color :)

im calling these ones "BlueBerry Delight"

it is still early days in the breeding program and there are "NONE" for sale yet, so please dont ask :)

anyway your thoughts and feed back are welcome :)

this is the darkest male.

Dean - You are really setting the benchmark when it comes to selectively color breeding dwarf shrimp.

Well done - keep up the great work. ;)

keep trying with the names lol

@BB i selected the bluest babies from the chocxchoc and crossed them with each other and this is what i got.

they are about 10-12mm and have not changed to black/blue like the others so im hopeful i can do something good with them

in a few more generations :)

I would go with "Cobalt Cherry" as it matches the blue colour nicely

      O.k rethink. If I use that Salty Shrimp GH/KH stuff. Can you recommend any good fertilisers I could use for the plants? I'm not dosing anything at the moment.

      Not going to lie, this is giving me a headache. Just want a nice planted tank with fish and shrimp. 🤨 At the moment it looks like it have to either pick 1 or the other. Would this be a solution. Use Seachems Equilibrium and KH products to bring my GH and KH up to 4, then use that Shrimp King Mineral Fluid Double, to bring the GH up to 6. That would make sure that there are at least some minerals for the shrimp.

      Hi there buddies wanted to show you pics of pipefishes I caught in the wild, Microphis brachyurus and Microphis cruentus. Unfortunately, I now exceed the limit quota of attachments on my profile. Will try to fix that issue ...

      My vote is for Endlers. Mine are the most fascinating (from a fish lovers point of view here) and cute fish in my tank, but I reckon they would be perfect for you, as mine are constantly picking on stuff! They’re the only fish who eat my dreaded snail eggs (on the glass and other surfaces) which I love! Plus you don’t need heaps. Males are small if you just want them for this. And you will be able to get them anywhere.   I have a school of 20 embers in my tank, but I rarely see them hunting in any manner, much less on surfaces.

      In case it helps I have looked up the figures of the 2 tanks with cherry shrimp in them and they are as follows, Main tank     PH7,, GH5, KH2, TDS 225 (mixed water) Betta tank  PH7.5, GH6, KH3, TDS 222 (tap water + mineraliser) They are fairly similar to each other but neither is really in the 'IDEAL' recommendation range of CHERRY shrimp ,so it confirms that cherry shrimp are more adaptable and can thrive even outside those 'IDEAL' parameters? I suppose neither are that far out but it just shows there is a bit less necessity to get everything 100%, though if you aim for perfect you will probably get better results all round? Simon
