TB = Taiwan Bee
Tibee = Tiger (Caridina Cantonensis) x Bee shrimp (Caridina Cantonensis)

I know it can get kinda confusing sometimes but the correct terms are as I listed above.

PS- I hope me and my girl have a shrimpin relationship one day too? Its hard to get people into the shrmp scene without showing them pics/info from TPT. Im trying to set up a tank at her place but she has a jerk of a cat.
Only a couple have the gold stripe on the black sections.

Keep at it with the wifey/girlfriend. I guess I'm just lucky that she happened to be the one into shrimp first lol.

They get the same size as Cherries, Pumpkins, Yellows, etc. It's just a new Neo variant.

Check out this HOT shot I just took. Hope you guys like it. These two lovely ladies are tugging away at a piece of barley. Take a close look at the lady on the left... see her eggs (saddle)? Then compare them to the berries on the lady on the right... pretty cool huh?

Amazing comparison between saddled eggs and berried eggs! This shows how much eggs develop as they are fertilized

Lol depends. Do I get to choose?

Perhaps I can help out on that. All F1's so far look to be "carbons." Some clear tissue, some blue tissue- but both with dark markings.

Don't know about F2's yet.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
