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

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 ...
