That's not a Green Cherry, THIS IS !!!

Slow process with the selective breeding of green cherries, lots of culling and patience, thought I was progressing reasonably with these outcome...

I can tell that photo of "Yours" is photoshopped BB, so I ran it through a sophisticated program which removes any signs of manipulation, I was left with this completely un-edited rubbish...

I can see why you decided to edit the original, its terrible :P

I have to agree, the "Jade Green" shrimp has got me all excited, maybe a bit too much to be normal, such a beautiful colour! :worthy:

You have to admit Bluebolts that by having at least some pretty fine green cherry shrimp to start with, your a lot closer to the jade cherry than the rest of us.

Bluebolts can he breed it? Yes he can.

possibly a stupid question but what was the origin of your greens? wild type or a mix of other colors?

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
