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!

      I used to keep guppies, blue dreams and tangerine tigers in a tank together. Guppies are gone now - I would get loads and loads of berried girls but never any shrimplets surviving! I would recommend against any fish with shrimp unless it is a catfish, or a very small fish like an endler, or microrasbora. My personal opinion though - in the end it's your tank, and you want to enjoy it. I will say that once I removed the fish, my shrimp became extremely active!!! It was so fascinating to watch them constantly on the move. I have since moved a pair of endlers in, and the shrimp activity has died down slightly, but it is so much better than a breeding group of guppies. Water params work well for TTS and Blue Dreams. Just gotta have a handle on it.  You might want to be careful on substrate though - TTS pop on black, but blue dreams are so hard to see. Contrary to that, blue dreams pop on white. I think white might work for TTS too, but plants look a bit yech on white. My favourite colour of substrate I've seen has been a light river sand - works not amazingly, but very well with all of them. A happy medium. The blue dreams and TTS together do look fantastic though. Really beautiful shrimp.

      The easiest and safest choice of shrimp with the dlue dream would be Tangerine Tiger (assumig you can get hold of some), they like similar water and are as easy to keep as neocaridina but the two don't interbreed and are  usually fairly reasonable in price! The contrasting colour will also make it interesting to look at. I've not tried tiger shrimp yet myself but with all the disruption here because of the virus its not a very good time to get shrimps through the post so I will hold off for now! As you say/know guppies are very curious fish and will get baby shrimps so you will want a densely planted tank with lots of hiding places if any of the baby shrimp are to survive. As you also say, it is a shame the guppies can't go in with the Betta as that would solve the shrimp problem, but guppies and Betta don't go well together - there is always some problem stopping you from getting everything as you would like in this hobby? If you can resist the temptation to get the guppies for a while it may be better so the tank can settle down and your shrimp can multiply and you get enough of a good size shrimp to give them a chance? There are always many problems that can arise with new tanks and new livestock so it would also make sense from that point not to do/add too much early on as well? If you plan to get the shrimp shipped then they usually send fairly small and young shrimps that way so bear that in mind! Also, of course, the shrimp will naturally hide a lot if they feel unsafe with too many preditors in the aquarium? Now the aquariums. I can't find a fluval spec, but the fluval flex I know and had a similar setup years ago with the equipment hidden in the back. It is very clean and tidy looking, however there are a few problems that can arise with small shrimp. There are slots top and bottom where the water is drawn in to the back, but these slots aren't shrimp safe, shrimp can get through, or even get drawn through when young. You will need to get some sponge to put behind these slots to make it shrimp safe, but not too fine as that will reduce the amount of water circulating through the back section. This is only important/needed with small shrimps like neocaridina, the amanos are way to big to need to do this? This extra sponge needs to be removable for squeezing during regular maintenance as it will otherwise get clogged/blocked. You will need to check the water level in the back regularly as it can drop dramarically, which could be a problem if the heater is in the back! I don't know the setup of the 'spec' aquarium as a search only showed small 10L tanks but they had the same type of filtration system as the flex. The flow for the betta may be able to be adjusted on the pump, mine was (though it didn't have a betta in it, just shrimps). You should be able to reduce the water disturbance also by pointing the outlets upwards and to the sides and that may be enough (hopefully). If these 2 aren't sufficient then you can cut a piece of sponge (again, not fine sponge) to cover the outlet (you can remove the standard flat end piece to make that easier). My betta tank has a spray bar and I have a sponge sleeve on that. Again though, keep a close eye on the water level in the back section though, mine dropped to half way at times (as the sponge gets clogged) even though the main tank level never dropped at all!

      Simon     You kind of nailed my plan on the head, I will be moving 6 of the Amanos with the betta and then do Cardinal tetras and most likely Harlequin Rasbora's. This will be a Fluval spec 16 gallon. Still need sort out the filtration return so the the current is to the Bettas liking  Im not too worried about mixing the Cardinal Tetras and Betta as they seem to keep him in check, but he's not gonna get to eat more of my poor little shrimp... My shrimp tank (15 gallon Fluval flex) will still have 10 Neon Tetras, 4 Guppies and 4 Amano and then I will stock with 30 blue Dream shrimp or do 10 / 20 if I can find another color that they will not cross breed with (not up on all of that yet)  I will add shrimp hides (already did b4 but the betta got his head stuck in one so I had to carefully break it off of him) and plenty of Java Moss and plant cover. I would really prefer not to have the guppies with the shrimp but already know that they cannot go with the Betta (whole different story)   Thanks for the input Simon its appreciated and if you are aware of any other little shrimps that I can mix with Blue Dreams and will not cross breed and also fall under caretaking "easy" please let me know and Thanks again  I got the Amanos when the driftwood spread fungus through out the tank they had it cleaned up in no time!! (So ya know what you mean about the white cotton like fungus_Yucky Muck)  This (what ever it was) was different and all of the shrimp became very reclusive. After they didn't respond to feeding for a day and I hadn't seen shrimp out and about for 48Hrs. Felt I had no choice but to Nuke the tank.   Thx again Simon & JayC

      Limbs on shrimp/cray/prawns/lobsters will grow back. So just keep it fed well and it will recover slowly.
