sharni's guppy project

Recommended Posts

smicko

Hi all, my eldest daughter loves guppies and has been breeding them on and off for years.

She is on a mission to create her own type, no one knows what it will look like or be called yet, not even her but when she sees a different looking guppy that stands out the next step will be getting them to breed true.

The tank so far has a few of slins project guppies, high dorsal blue endlers, gold tiger endlers, red chilli endlers and other assorted guppies.

The nicest one I've seen is a high dorsal snakeskin chilli endler but that's not what she's after. I guess only time will tell what comes of this project.

In the meantime here is some progress pics.

Cheers mick DSC_0029_zpstsnudtkm.jpgDSC_0028_zpshcagclah.jpgDSC_0030_zpsrszqmriq.jpgDSC_0085_zpsgpc7tqrb.jpg

      Going back to culling , i would like to point out that removing too large a proportion of the colony you wish to improve , gets  your there faster , but you reach a point of no further progress for lack of genetic variability.  I tend to cull the worst 20% of my colony once a month and observe a slow steady improvement. Hopefully my colony will continue to improve Long into the future. I have learnt about population genetics when i was interested in breeding fancy fowl, and kept up to date now that i am interested in shrimps and horses. The laws are the same.the greater the breeding population and the lower the percentage that is removed from reproducción, the healtier and more prolific will remain and the further the progress in recombining desirable caracters. A severe rate of culling makes your population very homogenous early on and improvement stops

      I'm still new to the hobby but they kinda look like other post (could be wrong, but he called them glass shrimp)

      For the last pic it looks like a pinocchio shrimp (Caridina gracilirostris).

      Maybe someone will correct me. Sorry couldn't help anymore.

      Newer A/C units now have auto on/off features. Maybe it's time for an upgrade @Zoidburg 😁 The things we do for our shrimp!

      @jayc Would it help at all to move this thread to General Questions/Discussions? Still looking for ideas on what these guys may be.
