Thanks guys. No, not my own line. I bought about 10 high grades from a mate of mine as juvies and she was the only female in the group. I'm going to try to improve the black colour more, select breed and get my own line.

Hi John,

Welcome to SKF....great we're getting a strong community of shrimp enthusiast in Perth. Lots to share and learn here in SKF....hope to catch up soon !

No doubt the CBS quality is lagging behind CRS in Oz.... we'll soon get some equality with our existing breeders in OZ !

      I have a question, I have some new Murray river long arm shrimp, does anyone have any experience about keeping these guys in a tank with fish? What sized fish will they try and eat? (Or better yet successful catch) I also have a new bristlenose pleco in the tank, they're a little slower and placid, will they eat him?

      Great photo, and great to hear that this tank is still going 'OK' for now, hopefully with time it may just settle down on its own? I don't know the answers to your questions but I am eager (as I am sure you are as well) to see what happens next and what the babies look like!   Simon

      Two berried tigers! 3/5 of the tigers are females, so it’s very likely that they bred with a black or red crystal. I don’t actually know what this means or what the mischlings will be? Will the only carry the tiger gene while producing crystals and tigers, or will the babies show fancy tigers markings?   Also, what determines how many eggs a female produces? One tiger has CONSIDERABLY more eggs. The on in this picture has about half as many eggs as the other...

      Very happy!   Ugh, that tank. I can’t win with that tank, the fix didn’t last. But all are acting healthy. The ones with whatever the issue is seem to be losing white pigment? They are turning clear. However, it’s still only the red crystals as the black crystals and tigers show no symptoms.   I do have two berried Tigers in the tank, so I am excited to see what I get( I’m adding pics to that thread now)

      Oh wow, as you say they certainly are tiny! You must be so happy? How is it going with the other (Caridina) tank? Simon
