Soothing Shrimp Love the opaque ones, really dislike the poorly colored ones. But hey, I love neos and some people don't. All a matter of preference.

aznrice247 If done long enough and crossed correctly they can come out to this...

Done by a German breeder for years. like F7+

Betta132 Ah, never mind.
My bad.

ravensgate Tibees are tiger X bee shrimp. Neos are a different shrimp entirely. The first few generations may be plain, some may not. The crosses are almost infinite as tiger shrimp can include regular tiger, super tiger, black tiger, OEBT, BTBE, red tiger and more I probably can't think of and bee shrimp can be bumblebee, CRS, CBS, Goldens and any Taiwan Bees (though the trend now is to call Taiwan bee/tibee crosses Tai-tibees). And then the pattern and colors can vary depending on male/female (male OEBT X CRS female may have slightly different looking results than CRS male X OEBT female). This is why most people don't fool with them, you would have to have unlimited tanks almost to see what all you can get.

What you have are wild variation NEOs, that's what happens when you mix colors.

Betta132 Woah... You've got a lot of variation in there!
So if I'm correct, a 'Tibee' is a dark blush-greyish shrimp, probably with stripes, that is basically a mutt and has lots of genetic potential.
I think I have a couple of those, although they aren't quite as dark... I got 'em from somebody who accidentally mixed red and yellow neos.

ravensgate New arrivals in the tank from Tanner!





This pic is way blown out but this dude is wicked neat. Again, this is a tibee, not a low grade CBS



And this guy has been in there a long while. I believe he is a Tangerine Tiger hybrid but he is one of my favs. His head is green, body is orange-ish colored, and the white pattern is gorgeous. I have two similarly marked but this guy is the neatest.



My babies from January are finally becoming adults, several are saddling up. I'm hoping to start doing some heavy culling probably around the first week of December. Will have a slew of mischlings to move over at some point and want most of the CRS out of there before I do that. Time to get serious!

ravensgate Yeah that It IS confusing. If I ever name a line of shrimp it's going to be like 'Stewie Shrimp' or 'Maybel Shrimp'. Avoid color names altogether, heehee (like the Larry shrimp).

Soothing Shrimp ...and to make it more confusing, "Snows" are crystals. :p

what are "goldens" ?? after googling, guessing they are crystals but never heard/seen them. Is this also where "snowballs" come from?

I have that awesome lineage pic saved somewhere but reading it in words will help me remember

That shrimp is a Golden They are a bee shrimp like CRS and CBS...lots of CRS and CBS actually have golden babies in their clutches Snowballs are neos.

Updates?

No. In this tank I have CRS, CBS, Goldens, OEBT, Tibees, and TT hybrids. I had amanos in there but moved them, the BKK that was in there passed. I have another tibee breeding project tank (also in my sig, the DB tank) that has a bunch of Taiwans and tibees in it I don't own any orange rili so not sure where that came from unless you are looking at the TT hybrids which can be orange. I do have a neo tank that houses a bunch of different colors/mutts, OEBT and my amanos. As for updates on this tank I'm hoping SOON I will have very good updates. My largest tibee babies are finally starting to saddle. It's a little disheartening that they are almost a year old (in January) and they are JUST now saddling but they are just slow growers for me plus I keep this tank below 72 degrees so that slows growth a wee bit.

Probably in December I will be doing some culling back of the CRS and pulling some of the tibee males in this tank. I'll be introducing mischlings in there from another tank and hopefully some Taiwans as well.

nightshadebel They look good with your crew!! Are they still doing well? Yay pictures!

ravensgate NEW PICS! Babies are growing, should be close to saddling on some of them in the next month or two thank goodness. Added some TT hybrids in as well and tore down my CRS/Golden tank and moved all of those over as well. Going to start a new tank this weekend for some fun breeding projects! So definitely stay tuned, will probably start a tank journal on that one Anywho, pics of the new TT x CRS/CBS crosses and then some group shots...you'd think I don't feed them (they are fed every single day because of this aggressive feeding behavior)
04-04-2013 03:37 AM
ravensgate Thank ya kind sir! And THAT is why I have to feed this tank every day. That is just an oyster shell calcium tab I dropped in there...they absolutely swarm anything they think is food. I try to not feed one or two days a week but when I do the tension gets a bit thick in that tank. Just really aggressive feeders, the whole lot of them, and of course the amanos don't help matters! LOL!
