mischlings and Tibee

Recommended Posts

petfish

TB x CRS or CBS = mischling , if those mischling's are crossed over a oebt or blonde tiger = Tibee. is this correct.????

To get your first F1 Tibee you cross a TB with a Tiger = Tibee. These are then crossed back to the Tiger or the TB giving F2 . I'm not sure what happens to the F number when a Mischling is thrown into the mix but as you want to end up with Pintos you need to keep crossing back the Tibees to the TB because Pintos need the intense colouring the TB gives. Throwing Mischlings into the mix would dilute what you are after. However if you just want fancy Tibees with different patterns and not going down the Pinto track then I think Mischlings and Crystals would be OK but really you should stick to the TB.

mmmmm, now i'm confused as i was told...M x Tiger then back over Tiger then back over mischling makes them F3 Tibee

Actually you are both, in a way, correct. Tibee is is a word that came from Tiger x Bee shrimp & Bee Shrimp are any Taiwan Bees, CRS, CBS, even Golden Bees or Snow Whites. So in a way I guess Mischlings are a Bee shrimp too. :thumbsu:

And there is also Tai-Tibee, where you cross a Tibee to a Taiwan Bee... too make it more confusing :)

Thanks for pointing that out Squiggs. When I've asked in the past I was told TB only and now this opens up my breeding program's because I have some very nice males that aren't PURE TB that I might be able to put to some of my female Tibees.

There seems to be a lot of confusion on this topic.

Someone needs to write an article once and for all that can be a sticky thread.

That would be great. I also think that the thoughts on Tibee breeding have changed somewhat from when they first came on the scene and were a closely guarded secret! It's a bit like the Pinto breeding was even just a few months ago. It would be great to have up to date breeding info available to us all. 

When I got my first Tibees they were given on the strict understanding that I didn't breed with them -they were all supposed to be males anyway but I had a female in the mix and she berried before I realised. Within weeks of getting them the Tibees were showing up all over the place- we had our first Tibee auction at that time so i was allowed to start using them.But they were all Tiger to TB back then.

Ok.

I'm drafting something.

 

But I just realised something ... I don't know what a Tibee x Mischling is ???

Anyone?

 

What do you call a Tibee crossed with a Mischling? (pariah? LOL)

Is this hybrid advisable?

Or is this diluting the genes too much?

:lol:

 

Tibee crossed with a Mischling must be a "no go" zone.

Don't even try it, as you'd revert back to a wild type shrimp.

 

 

<edit> - Actually, come to think of it, Tibee X Mischling might be used as gene carriers, as Petfish mentions below.

You'd use it to crossbreed back with a pure breed.

 

But I still don't know what the term is for a Tibee X Mischling.

Not Tibee x Mischling , Mischling x tigerpost-846-0-24401000-1412228136_thumb.jpgthis is Mischling x tiger then back over tiger then back over Mischling now f3 actually F4 when you count the origanal 2 x's which were PANDA x TIGER and KK x CBS .i believe the TIGER used was a OEBT.

i am still finding this confusing but will attemt to explain what i have, it appears they are f4 not f3, originally panda x tiger = Tibee at the same time          KK x CBS = mischlings the Tibee's were then x'ed over the Mischling's, then the shrimp from that x were put back over the tiger, the shrimp from that x were then put back over the mischling ...and that is what i have now ,the shrimp from the last x = f4 shown in the pic above ^^^^^ the original KK and Panda came from Dean when he owned Boss Aquaria.......

You'd use it to crossbreed back with a pure breed. With it, will come dominant and recessive genes.

But I still don't know what the term is for a Tibee X Mischling.

 

Waiting on this before I post the draft article.

To my understanding the f system was used for fish as a way to determine how many generation from wild caught stock.And has now been applied to shrimp.Fist thing, is this was used for pure breed fish not hybreeds as tigerbees are but you can adapt it to do so.

One thing you have to have clear is what is the hybreed .Lets say tibee ,being a tiger x bee shrimp. 

Ok tiger being any pure tiger no matter what colour and bee shrimp no matter what type.

So TB CRS CBS GOLDEN OR MINSHLING ARE ALL BEE SHRIMP.

And BLUE BLONDE BLACK OR ORANGE EYE ARE ALL TIGERS.

Thuss every gen crossed with any combo of the above would add to the f number as long as one of the pair was a tibee.

EG /CBS X BLUE TIGER=TIBEE F1

       TIBEE F1XTIBEE F1=TIBEE F2

       TIBEE F1Xany bee shrimp=F2

       TIBEE F1X any tiger shrimp=F2

and so on and so on the only way this would change is if you added another breed of shrimp.Then the process would start again

with a new seiries of f numbers with the Addition of being able to breed any combo of the 3 SP involved.

Daydream if that works for F1 Tibee x F1 Tibee = F2 Tibee why is it that if you breed an lets Say F 4 Mischling x F4 Mischling the F number goes back to F1?. This is where it gets so confusing - I'm asking because I really don't know the answer but if the F number goes up for Tibees surely it must for Mischlings yet we keep getting told the babies go back to to F1.

Hopefully we can get this all sorted with this thread . Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I think there must be lots of us with tanks full of male Mischlings which we have been told are virtually worthless in any of our breeding programs - at least this is what has been said in the past on the forum.

Yes there needs to be a definite clarifacation made but the diff between breeding tb minshling with minshling is the % of tb not getting higher but,but saying that your % is not going back either so in my opinionF4tbminshling x tbF4minshling you are still at F4 as you are noy gaining or loosing % of tb gene. With tibee x tibee % is still 100% and crossing tibee with minshling or any other bee shrimp you get 100% tibee and tibee cross tiger 100% tibee as they are a hybreed.

EG /CBS X BLUE TIGER=TIBEE F1

       TIBEE F1XTIBEE F1=TIBEE F2

       TIBEE F1Xany bee shrimp=F2

       TIBEE F1X any tiger shrimp=F2

 

 

 

Don't forget also Tibee F1 X CBS or BLUE TIGER Parent = F2.

 

But 

TIBEE F1Xany bee shrimp=F2

TIBEE F1X any tiger shrimp=F2

would not be the same genealogy anymore. The Filial number would go back to F1.

 

Draw it as a picture. Start with two shrimp, the parents. The offspring is connected to the parents. 

As soon as a shrimp is added that is not linked to either parents or offspring, the Filial number starts again.

 

F4 Mischling from one parent X with another F4 Mischling from a different set of parents also go back to F1.

Yes different gene pool but still tibee 100% as any cross of the given sp would result in a tibee.AS with the tb even if from different parents the % of tb is f4 no gain no loss.

This is where it gets hard for those of us that aren't so understanding of genetics. I can't get my head around why the Mischling x Mischling goes back to the start as in F1 . In my thoughts they would stay static at what ever F number they are as Daydream stated F4 xF4 = F 4 . But I accept whatever the forum in general puts forward once we have sorted it - hopefully we can!

      Side question, can I get away with this micro HOB? It has predicted sponges, abs I really want something to polish the water a bit more https://www.amazon.com/AZOO-AZ13099-Filter/dp/B072KL1NDY/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?keywords=azoo+mignon+filter+60&qid=1573604390&sprefix=azoo+&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExR1dYU0xYVkVKU0E2JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTc5NDMwM09ETkw2WEFJM0czNCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDYxMzIyMTNCUVo1TExGWFgzRCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX3Bob25lX3NlYXJjaF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl

      Not as much as the adults, but, I tend to see them when the father in the feeding area. If the adults are out, they seem to be in the same area. I counted 5 last night

      @Sonnycbr, Instead of blindly doing water changes, you should test your pH in the cycling tank. If it drops below 6.8, than do a water change to bring it back up above 7.0. How much you change can depend on how it new water it takes to bring it back above 7.0 pH. Some times, people don't know why they change water during the cycling process. They might say "Oh it is to reduce the ammonia levels". But ammonia is what feeds the bacteria. Aren't we trying to build up the beneficial bacteria? Than why are people (even on youtube) throwing out the very thing that is needed for the bacteria to colonise? The ammonia.  The real reason we change water during a cycle is because the bacteria growth/activity slows when pH drops below 6-ish. It is at it's optimum above 7.0. The new water which should ideally be above pH 7.0 (tap water usually is), will bring the ph of the whole tank back up. In addition, the new water should hopefully also contain more ammonia, food source, for the bacteria. (De-chlorinate the tap water if you use it!!) In a tank that has been cycling for a while, the bacteria that starts breaking down ammonia will eventually remove all the ammonia, it's food source will be gone. If you don't have another source of ammonia (eg, livestock waste, degrading food, externally added ammonia) ... the newly established bacteria will start to starve. More ammonia needs to be added somehow. The pH in a tank will naturally drop during the cycling period. The breakdown of ammonia NH3 by the bacteria leaves behind more hydrogen H. The N (Nitrogen) is removed from NH3, leaving H3. That is, more Hydrogen is left behind. The pH scale is logarithmic and inversely indicates the concentration of hydrogen ions in the water (a lower pH indicates a higher concentration of hydrogen ions). So the water change does two things, raises the pH and adds more ammonia, not take away ammonia.  If you use RO water to cycle a tank ... RO water is devoid of a food source (ammonia) and is naturally low in pH. Is this a good type of water for tank cycling? So now that you are armed with this information, you are now officially more knowledgeable than that youtuber you watched. Go forth and change water in a cycling tank only when needed. 50% twice a week could be the right amount for that other person, but it might not be right for you.
