I didn't know what else to call them - I'm interested in finding out what they should be called because I have soooooo many of them :)

Do you guys ever post pictures of your shrimps? 

 

Since it's all hybrids it's hard to guess what they look like.

These are a few TaiTibee and TIBEE/ Mischling types I have. I also have some spotted head white body with black skirt - also in red, I still need to get some pictures of them.

I know this topic has been quiet for a while, but I have a question re Tibees and Taitibees.  I had a Tibee in my tank with my TB for about 6 months before it passed away.  I thought that was that until I started seeing the previous few sets of juvies get big enough to have visible markings, and so I think I have a Taitibee as a result of the Tibee x shadow panda.  (Crappy photo under poor light sorry).

Ok, so far, so (kind of) simple.  Since the original Tibee is no longer in the tank, the Taitibee in the picture above matured, turned out to be female and had offspring by another TB (could have been a BB, shadow panda or KK).  Now I have her offspring in the tank with very similar markings, but I can't tell what I should call them.  Is it a Taitaitibee?  Or is a Taitibee x TB still just a Taitibee?  Or, is it just a TB with am interesting pattern?

I got 20 CBS A/S grade in less than 5 months I got 3 black king kong and 2 pandas, should I consider lucky that i got TWB of CBS or probably I got mischilling instead of CBS , but i read that mischilling X mischilling does not produce TWBs,  very confusing .

That would depend on what you wanted in the first place. If I already had mischlings and really wanted pure CBS, then yes, I would be unhappy. What you got are not CBS and you could never sell them as CBS. If you don't have an issue with that, then that's no problem. 

The principal of the sale however is a different story. Deception is never ok.

It's rare, that mischling x mischling produces TWB, unless the TWB genes are strong in the mischling - which means they are several generations old, and have been mixed back with pure TWBs. 

So yeah, the original seller cannot plead ignorance in this case.

Wish I found this earlier, very useful and interesting to read!!! Loved the explanation of filial numbering, since I have heard and used the term before but never had such a clear definition of it. Thanks Jayc!

      Hello everyone!
      I bought some pintos, and i did put them with my other bees (some panda, some king kong, some blue bolts).
      However, i can't seem to find if pintos do breed true (in that case, should i separate them? or will those mix with the others
      to make cool new paterns, colors, etc?)
      I have a hard time figuring what bee breed true if any.
      I've read that bee are a mutation of CRS/CBS, but do they produce  similar offsprings or is it more random as an interaction of
      multiple genes?
       
      Thanks in advance for the help!

      I got some nice specimen from my mix-aquarium with TB's, pinto's, taitibees etc, etc, The first 2 photos (I think) must be a mix from a pinto zebra and a kingkong, The red one is probably a red tiger and the same father? I've got 2 of the  blacks and about 10 of the red ones, I have put them apart from the rest and see what the next genereation will be. Sorry for the quality of the photo's, they're just from my iPhone, the macrolens I ordered hasn't arrived yet :-(

      Hey all I am new to the shrimp thing and am a bit confused by a few things. But first a bit about what I have and want to achieve.
      I am looking at keeping Crystal Reds and Blacks and as my confidence increases trying for a few different types like Hulks and Blue Bolts and maybe a selective breeding program. I have a cycled rack with 5 tanks ( 4 x 3ft and 1 x 5ft) a common sump (3ft with normal media and a 10000 l/h pump with return so pressure isn't through the roof) and sponge filters for each of the 5 tanks. It has a 300w heater but I am thinking of adding a second 200w just in case of a problem. Will this be ok for the above shrimp or stop the sump and just use the sponges? And now for my newbie questions and things I would like clarified.
      - Pinto's are a hybrid shrimp of tigers and bees bred for specific patterns or is there something more complicated happening?
      - Can you have mishlings and end up with a few different bee type shrimp after breeding. ie 2 x mishlings bred and offspring could be KK or Hulk or Panda (or any others) depending on genes?
      - Can you ever breed true bees from mishlings?
      - When doing water changes do you gravel vac the substrate or just top up water?
      - I was planning to have the tanks bare with mosses and plants in pots to help with cleaning will this be ok?
      - I am using rain water it has a 6.8 PH, 0 KH and I don't have a test kit for TDS and GH is it necessary to have these tests and will I need something to buffer the water and keep the PH lower like ADA soil? - (I have read if KH and PH are low you cannot have a high TDS????)
      - Can you get Crystal Blues, Greens or Oranges and what is the difference between Pandas and Crystal Black is it just a slight colour difference?
      Please forgive any obviously silly questions as I have searched a lot on the net and confused myself with different information. I am also wanting to minimise any deaths so have not bought any shrimp yet until I am satisfied I know enough and can achieve what I would like to.
      Any extra advise would be appreciated thanks for the help and if you need any more information about my setup or anything let me know sorry again if anything seems obvious.
      Cheers :)

      A rookie mistake on a hot melbourne day (it was above 40 degrees yesterday). My tanks got a little too hot yesterday as I closed the door to where I keep them and thus prevented the air conditioning hitting that room. As a result a couple of TB female shrimp deaths and to make matters worse when I got home I left the lid off my breeding external box to give the water more air/oxygen. This morning I woke up and found 2 TB's had tried to make a run for it and had jumped out of the breeding box and were dead on the floor.
      Great thing about keeping shrimp is that you learn the lessons the hard way!

      Keep doing this, and feeding it the medicated food. If the shrimp doesn't eat the food within a day, remove it and feed new medicated food again the next day.   You sir, are a good candidate for an RO filter. Your shrimp are not going to like the hard water in the long term.

      The shrimp is in a separate container, but it's been in there for a week or so now. I see it picking off the air stone and the sides of the tub. There is shrimp poop in the container, so it is eating, just not the food I give it. I suck out the detritus and excess food every couple of days and do small water change daily. At first I used tank water, since I don't run R/O. I use a combination of hard tap water with a little water ran through my water softener (I know it's a bit taboo to do). I don't know an exactly how to re-mineralize it to keep the shrimp from going into shock if I used straight clean tap water. I am starting to slowly remove the water from the tub and mixing it with direct tap water with the water softener on by-pass, so hopefully it can acclimate to full clean tap water. With the shrimp feeding, should I try to remove all visible signs of food and fast it for a couple days and then try again?

      Is the shrimp still in the main tank? Or have you moved it into a separate container? There should be no biofilm in a new container, and it should be hungry to want to eat the medicated algae wafer. It won't go away without treatment. The bacteria is not just on the shell (carapace), so moulting won't get rid of the bacteria.

      I've tried to feed the shrimp food soaked in the oregano oil mixture (1 drop of oregano and 5 ml of water since it's 86% carvacrol). The shrimp seems to hate the taste of any food I put in there with the mixture. It goes off and tries to feed on anything but the medicated food. I don't have any other food in the tub and took all the floaters out but seems to be feeding on naturally growing biofilm now.. I'm not sure if I am seeing any results. Should the reddish brown spots go away on it's own or does the shrimp have to molt it off? I've noticed it's been scratching itself a lot.
    • alkemist
      Ok, thanks. I'll do that. Yes, I have the tub lightly aerated.
