I'm not in any way opposed to a calendar. I wouldn't really want a cluttered poster with lots of species, but some of your more attractive species would make nice singular posters. I'd pay up to roughly $10 per poster. Not a bad profit on photos you enjoy taking! Haha.

Really, when you think about it, all cherries have the same colors in their system. It is a matter of which keys unlock what color on the DNA line that makes the "mutants."

Even then colors can be real foolers. For example, leopard geckos have had at least two albinos (Tremper and Rainwater) that when they breed, aren't on the same loci- so create normal offspring.

I suspect shrimp can be the same way with where the color lies on the DNA, so when they breed- even though they look the same- they don't line up genetically.

The only real way to find out is to breed "purebreds."
Keep us posted my friend. I'lll do the same with mine. Maybe later down the line we can trade to see how similar/different they are to each other.

Hey I have a suggestion for you. Why don't you make a shrimp poster with all your professional pictures? I was going to buy Azoo's poster on amazon (ASIN B00B7JWWUE) but it is written in another language, plus they have cray fish on the poster which I'm not a fan of.

I just want a nice poster with all the neos, caridina, and all the new variation of freshwater shrimps
Maybe this year will be the year . We shall see.

Thanks for the Like!

We'll see bro. My day job keeps me plenty busy so it's just a matter of finding the time of day. Like I said, maybe this year .

Hey Nick. What color substrates bring out the best color in OEBTs? Is it white and brown?

ATM I'm using ADA AS. I was using DRL Akadama before but that soil has long been depleted of it's buffering capacity so I tossed it.

You're right, they love blanched spinach. And it lasts much longer than zucchini too.
