Taiwan bee x Taiwan bee results.

Recommended Posts

To satisfy my curious mind, could someone shed some light into the Taiwan bee mutation.

Can a panda x panda for instance throw a blue bolt or red or King Kong .

thanks

If they are pure panda or bluebolt or wine red then generally not, but you can get king kongs from pandas & ruby reds from wine reds as these are just different colour patterns of the same genetic line. :D

This chart that was created by a some of our international members will help clear a lot up for you. :encouragement:

That chart simplifys it. Cheers Mate!

I have so many thoughts going on regarding which way my breeding program will go.:Scratch-Head:

Did you see SSS grade Pandas on the chart? Surely I can make one of those :blahblah:

Luckily I know my stock came from reputable breeders who were able to at least let me know the parentage. :worthy:

Glad to help & yeah I have been working on the more interesting variations on that chart. djuyet

I am sure you have... But the shrimping bug only just bit me.. Kind of think that timing was right too with the prices being realistic as they are now. I remember a friend paying $80 for a brown chocolate Cherry not so long ago.....btw that chocolate cherry went on to spawn what is now the foundation of my cherry mix....and I call it a mix because there is nothing selective going on in my tank. Give me time and luck and I'll be able to show you my results too ;) hang on to hijack my own post...

that pic both clears it up and confuses me.

spacifically with relation to the green hulk. where does it come from. obviously its not just a thing as theres apparantly very few around.

and i really really really want some :worried:

Hahaha, I believe they are a colour variation of a panda & they only place I know they are is Area 51.........Wait?! What?! I didn't say that!! Lol :rofl:

Area 51... no idea what you're referring to Squigg's :barbershop_quartet_

slin97, the purity of a specific TB's is dependable upon whether the breeder mixes his TB's (i.e. KK, WR & BB), or breeds them individually, i.e. BB x BB. Definitely know for a fact that by doing so, and with a few generations of selective breeding etc...BB x BB=100%. Not to confuse the issue, but Any TB x TB, is still a TB, so if you've got a specific selective breeding program, and only want your BB to produce BB, ask the breeder of it's heritage. If you're not familiar with TBM & TBMM, do a search on this forum, and it'll help you understand this term.

Green Hulk, is a variation, and Ive been unsuccessful in securing it's genetics, before my selective breeding colony perish with age :-( Originally, this variation/mutation came out of a WR x Mish, and the same WR x KK.... Love the GH !

Woops, I knew I must have been mistaken BB, lol Whistle-smiley22_zps17fd03f2.gif

      Side question, can I get away with this micro HOB? It has predicted sponges, abs I really want something to polish the water a bit more https://www.amazon.com/AZOO-AZ13099-Filter/dp/B072KL1NDY/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?keywords=azoo+mignon+filter+60&qid=1573604390&sprefix=azoo+&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExR1dYU0xYVkVKU0E2JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTc5NDMwM09ETkw2WEFJM0czNCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDYxMzIyMTNCUVo1TExGWFgzRCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX3Bob25lX3NlYXJjaF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl

      Not as much as the adults, but, I tend to see them when the father in the feeding area. If the adults are out, they seem to be in the same area. I counted 5 last night

      You mean your babies are now roaming around?

      @Sonnycbr, Instead of blindly doing water changes, you should test your pH in the cycling tank. If it drops below 6.8, than do a water change to bring it back up above 7.0. How much you change can depend on how it new water it takes to bring it back above 7.0 pH. Some times, people don't know why they change water during the cycling process. They might say "Oh it is to reduce the ammonia levels". But ammonia is what feeds the bacteria. Aren't we trying to build up the beneficial bacteria? Than why are people (even on youtube) throwing out the very thing that is needed for the bacteria to colonise? The ammonia.  The real reason we change water during a cycle is because the bacteria growth/activity slows when pH drops below 6-ish. It is at it's optimum above 7.0. The new water which should ideally be above pH 7.0 (tap water usually is), will bring the ph of the whole tank back up. In addition, the new water should hopefully also contain more ammonia, food source, for the bacteria. (De-chlorinate the tap water if you use it!!) In a tank that has been cycling for a while, the bacteria that starts breaking down ammonia will eventually remove all the ammonia, it's food source will be gone. If you don't have another source of ammonia (eg, livestock waste, degrading food, externally added ammonia) ... the newly established bacteria will start to starve. More ammonia needs to be added somehow. The pH in a tank will naturally drop during the cycling period. The breakdown of ammonia NH3 by the bacteria leaves behind more hydrogen H. The N (Nitrogen) is removed from NH3, leaving H3. That is, more Hydrogen is left behind. The pH scale is logarithmic and inversely indicates the concentration of hydrogen ions in the water (a lower pH indicates a higher concentration of hydrogen ions). So the water change does two things, raises the pH and adds more ammonia, not take away ammonia.  If you use RO water to cycle a tank ... RO water is devoid of a food source (ammonia) and is naturally low in pH. Is this a good type of water for tank cycling? So now that you are armed with this information, you are now officially more knowledgeable than that youtuber you watched. Go forth and change water in a cycling tank only when needed. 50% twice a week could be the right amount for that other person, but it might not be right for you.
