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|

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.

Ah! I was just guessing based on the very last pic you posted... bottom right hand corner.
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

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.

So, you have rcs, crs, cbs, tibee, orange rili, bkk? all in the same tank?!? Or are those some randomly thrown colors?

|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)|

|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!|

|Soothing Shrimp||Some nice pics you have there, gal!|
|04-03-2013 10:18 PM|
|ravensgate||Couple of quick pics|
|03-16-2013 06:50 PM|
|nightshadebel||Awesome!! They all look great and happy!|
|03-16-2013 05:44 PM|
|ravensgate||New additions! Got some new OEBTs in....and look at how the blue of the regular tibees matches Love my tibees! And got my first BKK...SWOOOOOOOOOOOOONN|

Haha, I know right?! They have changed colors so many time who knows what they'll look like when they grow up! All of my adults are various shades of blue, some a little dull, some vibrant, but all somewhat blue. And for a while there I thought all the striping patterns were the same but that's not the case now. I hope some maintain their stripes into adulthood. I have a large adult female that's teal with about 5 thin white stripes on her back that I just love the look of her. On the babies there are only 3 clutches in there. And a few days ago I counted 51 and that's just what I could SEE. By my calculations there should only be about 75 in there and I think all of them are there, I swear.
As fast as they are growing I expect them to be of breeding size in about 6 weeks...some less, some more but that sounds like a good average based on their growth now. And I can't WAIT!! WOOT! My birthday is in May and I'm already making my Shrimpday list, my gift to myself of course.
