Interesting find

Recommended Posts

DSC_0074_zpsd1724ece.jpg I found this one in my Red Rili Blue gene tank and at first thought it had red points but as it has grown it is either black or deep blue points. I have it in with my blue velvet cull tank at the moment to infuse some extra colour in them. I can't get a better picture than this as it stays at the back of the tank. i will try and catch it out next time I do another cull and try and get a better picture. This picture is untouched straight from the camera- I had cropped a coule of others to zoom in but the just weren't clear enough

A very interesting find, and its saddle looks green, either that or it has a massive green patch on its black that overrides the blue.

Nice variation. Do you have a carbon to pair her up ?

No BB I don't have any carbons she plus one other female who is quite a dark blue but with red points are the only ones I have. I thought I would wait and see what her babies look like and hope to find something I can use. She is in with only blues while the other one is in the community tank. When they are berried I will put them in another tank so I can be sure the babies are theirs. These came from my original group of Rilis from Dean. I have had them for a year and there have been a few dark blue girls but none as dark as her or with the dark points.maybe this is where the carbon Rilis came from? Anyway I will keep an eye on them with great interest. :)

I think the saddle caught the flash from the camera. I didn't notice it being particularly green but I will have a look in the morning. Quite a few of the Blue Velvet in that tank have a greeny yellow tinge. I have put it down to the WP's in that tank although there are still blues in there so they may be a variant as well.

      Thats interesting that you feel the same in USA with it being a much bigger country, I had thought that maybe it was a lot more difficult/risky transporting live shrimps because of that, and assumed it takes longer, or is ridiculously expensive? Thanks for that, most interesting. Simon

      When you say a ghost town I hope you don't mean the shrimp are dying off? When I set up my Betta tank I think I mentioned the soil was fighting with the water and I was getting PH of about 6 for a few months and it has crept up more recently. The culls I dumped in there were fine at the low PH etc so I would be amazed if that caused too much of a problem! If you now don''t have any shrimps in there maybe I would put the rock back into the tank so that can speed up the exhausting of the buffering substrate and it would probably be safer to wait until the substrate isn't buffering before buying any more shrimps as a precaution for a while?  Oh I see JayC beat me to it........ hopefully what you mean then is the forum ghost town and not the tank? Simon edit - I like the Green shrimps but dismissed them as the plants are also green so they will be very difficult to see, green on green, if that makes sense. Just something to consider?

      Not the best photo of the fish. Have you checked your water parameters?
    • jayc
      Yeah, there was an issue with SKFA forums or the servers its on for many hours. That would have been why no one was around to respond.   That rock was buffering the pH. Now that it's gone, the water is returning to it's normal pH range. Well normal but for the substrate buffering it lower. You can try adding a small piece of the rock back in - that's one quick option.

      Hey guys, I noticed a couple of days ago that one of my female rocket killies has some sort of disease or injury on her side, and I have no experience with fish diseases at all, so can I get some help with working out what it is and what to do about it? One of my female endlers also has a little white line on the end of her tail, and I just noticed this as well. Please help me with identifying the problems and fixing them.
