sharni's guppy project

Recommended Posts

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.

      You know the deal Kingo, post pics of your shrimp eating it.

      I saw a post for blue glass shrimp on a certain online fish selling site and wondered if anyone else had seen them or even purchased them? I was pretty certain the only time glass shrimp go red or blue is stress induced. And when I looked at the supplied photo the shrimp appears white bodied under the blue. Is my suspicion on the health of the shrimp correct? Thoughts?

      Another brilliant read. Thanks for your input @jayc!  Can’t wait to try it out.

      You can cross breed them with any other Palaemonetes species.  But it's not worth it. They are generally clear bodied and the result will be the same, a clear bodied shrimp. Trying to cross breed them with Caridina or Neocaridina, will result in rather bland looking shrimp as well. So not much reward for the effort.
