I dont think I can get into Tibee's. The wife would kill me if I just sat and stared at them the whole time I was home and I know I would. they are so cool and just fascinating to watch and look for the little changes.

I have a sneaking suspicion that I may be begging hubby for more tanks in a few months. I have ideas in my head but have to wait for these babies to get to breeding age. But yes..yes....I may require more tanks

I'm so glad some folks like these. Some people find them boring but gosh, not me, the colors of the adults vary from plain to turquoise to dark blue and the babies, well, who knows what they'll look like when they grow up! I've got some that are brown and white, teal and white, blue and white with bluish flesh (they really look different) and then 1 or 2 that are actually clear but just have the white stripes on their backs. Those interest me quite a bit...but pointless to speculate on what they'll look like when they grow up. This is my first rodeo with tibees, I'm just enjoying the ride

I did a lot of tibees last year with wild bees, regular tigers, and cbs. But my interest in them died out after an unfortunate bacterial infection.

But, after reading this thread, I may just try them again! CRS/TT/OEBT hybrids maybe......

My previous CBS/tiger babies gave me a result similar to C grade CBS....which is my favorite pattern.

YAY! More tibees! Heehee! I was going to put some TTs in with mine but I think now I've gotten a bit more focus where I want to go with them. Want to focus on the blue coloring but expand the white striping a bit. More of a marbled appearance. I saw a wedgewood blue and white tibee on a Japanese auction site a couple of months back that was the prettiest thing I ever saw. That's the sort of direction I want to see if I can take these. Gonna take a lot of time and proooobbbaabbbly more tanks. LOL!

Talking of tibees, this guy has been shooting blond f2 tibees? Too bad they are too small to pic with my iPad. Do you know what cross are yours?

My adults are crossed between Super tiger and wild bees. And Rachel says they are third generation. No OEBT or anything in the ones I have. Are yours OEBT crosses?

Well, the problem that I have is I crossed tiger and CBS, so that's is a no, but a guy down in Houston gave me some of his tibees and couldn't tell me exactly who X who. I have OEBT but in the same tank... Unless a have a sneaky one hidden with my guys (or a blonde).

Hmmm, well I have a couple of babies right now that are somewhat clear with white striping. Not sure if they'll grow up and will look like blonds or just clear shrimp with white striping. What color are their eyes? All mine have orange eyes but not glowy orange like OEBT, a more regular orange color...with a darker center.

No these guys are kind red/orange body and orange eyes, but too small to get a nice pic, I don't see to be able to take a good pic when I spot them.

Also spotted this one! Not blonde, but looks interesting! Never seem a young one with this color

If you're using an iphone you can get an Olloclip. It blows the contrast out quite a bit but you can at least get closeup shots.

Soooooooooo, this little dude just will not come out from hiding in his moss very often but he finally ventured out to where I could get some pics. I'm really excited about this little guy. I have another with the same zebra striping but lacks the white on the face and white dots on the head.
