Apart from shrimp, this is some of the other aquatic creatures I breed.

Such a variety in colours. And these are only juveniles (about 3-4 months old).

One of my favourite killifish! They look great Jayc, and will get even better as they get older! 

P.s. mine start breeding from like 2 months old, and I swear i get fry popping up in fry tanks because of this haha.

Thanks @s1l3nt

They look even better when two males start sparring and flaring up at each other.

But I'm never quick enough with the camera.

If I can get frys in the fry tank, I'll be happy.

I I had a about 15 or so fry in October that are now about 2-3cm.

Here are what they look like today. Their colours will change but they look so pretty now.

Found another fry lurking in the tank.

I'll have to drag my gear out. Taking good photos of killies needs the right lighting at the right angle.

Great to hear JayC.

Actually what you have is biateniatum AMAR11; I checked my messages and thats what I sent you.

They were imported into Australia March 2011 by Sydney aquarium store Aquaristic; hence the code AMAR11.

I recently lost these so if you have some spare, I would love to get a pair or some eggs back if it is possible.

Didn't see this reply till now.

Serkan,

I'd be happy to share them back with you. That's funny, because I remember my pitch to you about being a fallback, in case you lost your stock. And look what happened.

I've got the spawn mops out to start collecting as the weather is warming up.

I'm rather busy in the next week or two, so I'll look into sending you something after my busy period at work.

I'll keep you updated either here or on Facebook. I'll send you a pair and some eggs if I collect enough.

In the meantime PM me your details. 

Address, mobile, email.

      Unfortunately unless we can get at the black shrimp and cull everything else constantly we will always end up with a few blues etc. I tried for sometime to get just blacks but I think it must stem back from when the blacks were first being bred here and nearly always kept with chocolates. Even back in my 2013 colony that i got from Dean there were blacks and chocolates together. The blues didn't start turning up straightaway but even with culling I ended up with all 4 colours. i know many people have the same issue when trying to breed the blue diamonds- blue from black -they have to cull hard and constantly and truthfully I don't think any or at least only a few have a large colony of blue diamonds that breed 100% true.  You need to try and find a few blacks that don't show the deep blue - try putting them in a white container near a light source - you will see the blue/black colour more readily -if you are lucky enough to get a trio of true black without the blue base you might get started -good luck!

      That is less than 5%, so that should be safe. But maybe change it over every 3 days. Or every week, if you want to be safer.

      Thank you for the imput Ineke. I too started with a mix of chocolate and black, nearly lost the lot thanks to an invasion of dragonfly caddis's and I ended up putting the few survivors into my 1000L pond. Months later I found chocolates in the pond and got interested in trying to get a good tank of them again. I swear my black cherry shrimp tank is determined to do my head in...….Almost every shrimp in there now is either blue (and practically all the shrimplets are blue) or a very definant blue/black. And the 4ft where I put all the dark chocolates are now producing lots of blacks. I know its an odd thing to complain about, getting too many blues, but come on I really loved the glossy all black cherry's. Oh and on a side note. In the dedicated Blue cherry tank I am getting deep blues, clear blues (diamonds?) and apparently for good measure blue rilli. And there is no way the shrimp can get between the tanks because no swapping around of plants has occurred and the tanks are a good 2-3m apart over a concrete floor.
