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 ...

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.

      We really need to know the water parameters before we can give you advice. Ideally, you should have taken a reading of the original water parameters the shrimp came in. And compared it to your own tank parameters. Otherwise how would you know an hour and a half of drip acclimating is enough. The water in your tank can be on the opposite direction to the water the shrimp came in. 
    • Fishlover
      OK so I bought 50 cherry shrimp on Thursday  December 13.  I drip accumulated them for bout 1 and a half hours during the drip I losted 1. The next day I saw two molt in the tank. On Saturday I saw 2 dead shrimps and about 3 more molt, Sunday more molts no death. Today Monday I saw another dead one should I be worry r is it normal for some to die off?  The tank is 29*18*18  40 gallons and have being up an running since last year with a couple guppies but now it's a shrimp only tank with mts, I don't know the parameters of the water I'm waiting for a master test kit but might get it this week or next

      Ooo new toy.   I'm no guru. I'm still learning 😀
    • jojowhisky
      Yep today i did a wc using tap water like what our guru jayc suggested.
      I also squeezed the sponge from the filter in the pail into the new tank. Topped up to the brim of the tank with abit of water from the pail as i did a wc there(the pail) as well.

      Ps my ph pen arrived today in the mail.*happy*

      I have put an advert in the 'for sale' section so someone may want free shrimp locally, however it is a bit of a needle in a haystack but I would rather give them away than kill them!!!!!¬ Hope your new tank is cycling nicely. Simon
