More intersting stuffs here.....

Checked the tank yesterday and all is well. First lady still holding her eggs. Second still berried.

Now here's where it gets interesting. This tank also houses C. propinqua a low order breeder. For the past several months, none of the ladies ever got berried for what ever reason. Now all of a sudden, I find (2) berried yesterday. Hmmmmm

Now I'm not saying that a potential cross happened between the C. serrata and the propinqua, but just odd that all of a sudden these gals are getting berried after such a long lull period. <scratches head>

I don't expect much from the Props anyway as they are pickers. I was trying to breed them at one point but everytime they get berried, they pick the eggs in a day or two. Very frustrating it was so I pretty much gave up on them for the moment.

Quick little update here.

Water change on Saturday and all is well. The males eyes didnt go black this time. The other lady is still saddled. Will be putting the prefilter on today.

Am really interested to see how this plays out! Cool that the red eyes are still showing.

I saw some pic recently of some caridinas that were born with red eyes and they turned black. Awesome that yours look as if to keep the red eyes.

Makes me wonder if these are Axanthic shrimp. A type of albino unable to produce yellows/reds.

Things still looking good. One berried and one saddled female still. Male has been more visible of late as well. Looks like everyone has gotten used to their new home now. I finally got the pre-filter in place. We're just waiting now for a hatching.

Personally after the fems deliver I would take them out and put them back in the main tank.

The fems won't have the white trait (because you didn't know who was the mom, right?), but the males will and the offspring will be at least het for it.

This lets breeding between themselves and back to the white parent happen. If it is a simple het (and since when has shrimping EVER been simple?), some white tigers should appear next generations. At that point, simply keep all the white tigers together for the next step(s).

If the gene is recessive, both parents need it, in order for that to happen you have to breed your white male to a regular female, then cross those babies with the white father. After that if there's no white shrimp, it means it's not hereditary.

Yepper. You can cross the F1's with each other, too and you'll have 25% chance of the recessive white showing up.
