Hi all, thought I'd share a pic of a new type of guppy I've come up with.

Cheers mick

Good work champion !

I will get some pics of what my daughter has done with the ones I got from you.

I added males that the back half is black on (forgot the name) and some chilli endlers, gold tiger endlers and high dorsal blue endlers, there is some magic coming out of that tank. Just got to separate some to see if I can get them to breed true.

Cheers mick

I've recently come across a book on guppy genetics. Blew my mind after dealing with betta genetics. Some traits only males cary, some only females. Guess that's what makes breeding true the hard part.

Breeding true part is min 7-8 generations.

 

Great looking fish! :thumbsu:

Thanks peeps, I'm thinking of calling this a chameleon guppy, as it wags it's tail it changes colour which is pretty cool.

Some pics to try and demonstrate.

Cheers mick

It's only small differences in the pic sort of like a red pearl moving across the blue base.

Do other people see this or am I tripping lol, it looks great whilst it's swimming along, can't wait to get a tank full of males.

Hopefully the next big thing in the guppy world

I see it, but I know what the effect looks like in real life, I have female guppies with similar tail colour changing (the males of the line have a deeper red colour though so don't have the colour changing) which is an odd quirk that developed at some point in the line and I carried forward.

That's damn impressive mate. Maybe I could help by providing a place to breed out a second line to cross back in every couple of generations :P haha 

 

Edit: This one showed up in one of my tanks recently, similar body pattern?

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      Also No3 , low Temp , and bacteria infections.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
