Stunning international innovations!

Recommended Posts

Squiggle

Just thought I'd share some stunning shrimp that are surfacing from international breeders. The first one is Vitézslav Bosák, a Czech breeder who lives in Venezuela, the second is Burak Aksoylu from São Paulo, Brazil & the third is Bernd Pühl, who I believe is German. So it is very interesting to see that some of the most interesting stuff is not just coming out of Germany, Japan or Taiwan. image_zpsb75c1baa.jpg image_zpsf5b95765.jpg image_zps49f211ea.jpg

Loving the purple, it does look like it's been "enhanced" a bit with the ol photoshop but I'm keen to see more purple shrimp!

Great looking Shrimp, can't believe the dedication and time these breeders must put in to create such variations. That said, i would have to include all of the SKF members who excell in doing so with their breeding programs.

Last & by no means least, the most stunning shrimp I've seen in a while, a Skunk TaiTibee from Waldemar Kolecki in Poland, just awesome!

I think it's actually an Extreme KK, or maybe a Pinto, with an interesting speckled pattern. :thumbsu:

WOW! What an awesome looking shrimp! I like how some of the dots are white while others seem to have the shadow coloration. Does the whole shrimp seem to have a purple base or is that just my eyes?

 

Thanks Squiggs for these pics they are totally sweeeeet!!! :thumbsu:

      +1 for the sponge. 
    • Crabclaw
      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
