Thanks guys. One of the new blue babies has proper white pinto markings down its back- hope they survive in their new tanks. It is very exciting to suddenly find these shrimp in my tanks when I wasn't actually trying to breed them. Thanks must go to BB as I'm sure the mothers must come from his MONGRELS :)

Wowee, awsom shrimp room :-) Shrips are looking great...to be true pinto, besides pattern, the coloration needs to be identical to TB's.... You're only 1-2 generations away...

Thanks BB. So I take it I should breed these back to my TB? The little blue guy I just found - not the one pictured - looks much better as far as markings and colour. As soon as its big enough for the camera to focus on it I will show you so hopefully you can help me with the direction I need to take. As I have already stated I am pretty sure these babies are from your bloodlines - unless they spontaneously appear when TB and Tibee get together. :)

Great to hear that you are re invigorated after your break and the shrimp look amazing.

I know how you feel about going in no set direction with breeding.

I have been doing some silly things lately and lost alot of shrimp but the upside is i know what i want to do now just gotta get my back surgery done this week and get the cash up to buy what i need to take it to the next level.

Sorry for going on about myself but after reading your thread and especially seeing the pics i feel inspired to move forward.

Thank you.

Cheers mick

LOL I just read your post on your thread before I read mine! Yes it's great when you get back into it especially when things haven't gone the way it should have. Now all my culls from my " Rainbow" tank are no longer taking up space I can get back into serious stuff!

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
