Could be blue from chocolate, from rili, from black or carbon. Depends what you have in there with them.

 

Or did it arrive with others?

I would say that comes from your Black most of them carry a blue gene. Keep an eye out for more you are sure to get some.

 

You should really keep your different coloured cherries in different tanks as they will interbreed and you may end up with wild type cherries plus you lose your true colour lines. OR you can end up with some interesting types but once they start crossing it's hard to bring the true colur back. I have a huge number of culls that have interbred - they were in my large cull tank - now I have heaps of unwanted shrimp that I can't really do anything with -there are some nice ones in amongst them but I can't really reintroduce them to my breeding colony and they aren't interesting enough to try breeding any particular line with them. Just a little warning because they breed very quickly!

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
