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:

      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
    • jayc
      Oh, if you are planning on keeping Cherry shrimp aim for 6-8GH as Simon said above.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Do you know what the water parameters are of this tank? Is the new male old enough to breed, assume it is as they only need to be 3 months I think but is that a possibility? Simon
