Cross pinto with tangerine tiger

Recommended Posts

nicpapa

Hi there...

I started with pintos shrimps , and i start to make mischlings.

Now i have 2 females pintos wiht eggs, 6 crs with eggs for making f1 hybrid and  two tangerine with eggs.

What can i expect from  tangerine tigers?

Did anyone try this crossbreeding ?

F1 are usually fairly plain but things get interesting by F3-4. I have bred many of them it just depends on where you want to go and what you like. Hybrids are interesting in that you never really know what you might get. As Pintos turned up in hybrid breeding initially you have a bit of a head start but you may end up with a lot of plain shrimp too.image.thumb.jpg.f3c4d6e079d96006cf67910f86368c89.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.c2ae9f4d3579df17a0108d43d3b96ac3.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.c15377146060e5959fb4a21010b41520.jpgimage.jpg.9e8c45660c8545b274eab263dc5f4f1e.jpg

Thanks for reply. ..

Those photos are f3-f4?

what is your opinion for faster breeding pinto taiwan.

Wiht making  hybrids or wait and stay without hybrids?

I can make a tank to put all the hybrids in there, and keep biger f.. female with pinto .

the red ones are F3 the others are F1 and F2.

I used to breed mostly taitibees -hybrids of Taiwan Bee and Tiger shrimp. Now we have better genetics to use - aura and Galaxy shrimp so there isn't so much interest in the ordinary taitibees. With early  hybrids it was  hard to establish a line that bred true and once I got to F10 I was getting more shrimp that looked  either like Taiwan Bees or Tigers. After 6 years i never established a true breeding line.

My opinion now is to keep pure lines pure and use culls from your pure line to experiment with the hybrids. we seem to be losing pure Tb and even the pintos were originally a hybrid that generally breeds fairly true although we seem to be losing the good patterns. people no longer seem to be culling out the irregular patterns so you usually see all types of patterns in tanks. When we had our pure lines they had distinct patterns rather than the random patterns you see now.

Since we are getting more variety entering Australia -  please remember it is still illegal to import shrimp but they are getting here - we have more opportunity to breed  exciting patterns that were not available in the early days of shrimp keeping here.

At the end of the day it is what ever interests you - if you want to experiment then do so - after all it is a hobby that we all enjoy. As long as people let buyers know their shrimp are hybrids then there is no harm. Unfortunately you need lots of tanks to breed hybrids and have tanks for pure lines too. I have resorted to putting my culls outside in ponds where they still breed despite no heating in winter and no cooling in summer. 

In the last picture you can see the random patterns I'm talking about these are in fact Taitibees some have pinto genes butthey don't have the nice crisp bands that good Taiwan Bee should have

I made like you said above...

Move all females crs and tigers and leave alone pinto in the tank.

Now it was easy because i dont have babies... 🙂

Good I look forward to seeing how you go. I love my hybrids but the really good pure lines are best left alone - there are plenty of culls to play with ☺️

This is why we end up with MTS (Multi Tank Syndrome).

One tank is never enough. 

You need one for Pure Lines, cause you need to keep some pure genetics.

You need another tank for experimenting with hybrids. 

One for culls.

Then one tank again for each variety of shrimp ...

You NEVER EVER EVER have enough tanks! Now I'm down to only 1 I keep seeing shrimp that I think might just be worth playing with ! I really do miss my shrimp room!

I  move the tibee to a 50 liter with hybrids.

In the 100 liter i loose the babies of the tibee, i dont know something in the water.

Also see some  planaria.

And i want to risk it so i move them , and add no planaria in the 100.

Now its empty.

 

Here are the hybrids...

There are a lot..

From tangerine tigers, cbs , crs..

I got in F1 spoted head .

From taiwan i get 3 king kongs .

Also tibee x tibee give only tibee... not hybrids, i know that because they are new and small.

moving hybrids to another tank and let the taiwan pinto babies grow faster.

I moved around 200 babies to 100lt tank.

I will see how i do it after growing up.

Is it possible to get orange eye blue tigers, from tibee x taiwan or tibee x tibee?

I have one blue baby, with orange eyes, also a king kong wit orange eye.

 

its my mistake that read it from the internet, that its faster make taiwans and tibee from hybrids.

Now i have around 200 babies f1 hybrids and i dont know what to do with them , because

i have around 40-50 taiwans -pintos babies from parents.

Its breed almsot 99% true

No. Don't think so. At least not a pure OEBT.

      Very ingenious and a lot cheaper than buying something made specifically for the purpose. I haven't seen anything like this in the UK, we never get the range/variety that large countries like US and Australia get. It is good to give people all the alternatives and then they can decide what they want and what is available to them. I'm sure there will be lots of people interested in your water container. Is it easy to fill or do you use a funnel? Or have you cut a hole in the side/top (the black patch in the photo)? How big is it in water capacity?

      It was a normal red cherry. It was as they all were, a standard red color. No dark pigmentation in the bunch. Color definitely changed after death. All other shrimp are healthy, eating and moving around. water parameters were tested twice yesterday and twice today, i’ll probably do a third before the night is over. All parameters are perfect, tested with drops and tubes. Gh &Kh are acceptable. TDS is 240ish and hasn’t  moved in a long while. tell me about the bacteria that you reference. thanks

      There is nothing more satisfying than DIY, and building your own water change dripper. I use an old 4L spring water bottle that has one of those spouts that have a tap on it. Cut a hole on the top to make adding water into the bottle easier. (as per the picture below). And just turn the tap on ever so slightly until a required drip rate is achieved. Cost: $4 for the water bottle, which was used at a picnic.

      Was this a Red cherry or Black cherry? Pigmentation can change colour on death of the shrimp. It's difficult to tell from a photo if its pigmentation change or bacterial infection.   To be safe, test your water parameters for ammonia. A large change in population can cause issues in a small tank, especially when the beneficial bacteria cannot cope with the sudden increase in waste.

      Good morning, I received my order of 20 shrimp from a very well known breeder. All looked good. all water parameters were ok yesterday and are the same today. the tank has been up and running for 6 months. i had one cherry in there for almost the whole time. (Had more but I believe the black diamond sand created issues for the first 20 I bought) somehow this single shrimp has been a trooper and never had any issues, I obviously removed the sand) TDS is 245 i had one shrimp die overnight...to be expected I guess. Weird part is that when I found it this morning it had areas of black or dark blue on the sides of both head and tail.  I added in the tiniest amount of Bacter AE after they arrived. I also offered 2 granules of north Fin community and veggie. Which was gone a few hours later. so I’m wondering if anyone has any ideas? All the other shrimp look ok so far.
