Taiwan Bee Tank


After a few years in the hobby, I finally got some Taiwan Bee Hybrids (thanks to a very generous member here!)

I started with 5 very young F1 TBS Hybrids (TBS/CRS) and as far as I know, if I can get them to breed, their offspring should be approximately 5 TBS (Black Panda/Wine Red/BKK) out of every 10 babies.

I'm not sure what the other 5 will be (would they just be regular CRS?)

Anyways, have to get them to adulthood first. Of the 5, one of the smallest babies died within a few days after I got them. The other four have been very healthy and have double in size.

The tank is a Do!Aqua Mini-L (about 8 Gallons)

At the moment I have a VERY yellow light on the tank, so the pictures look yellow. These shrimp are in fact a very bright white without any yellow on them at all. It's amazing how much brighter they are than even very high grade CRS!

Here they are:











Thanks for looking!

I'll post a FTS and hopefully some better pics with better (less yellow) light tomorrow.

Thanks! Even though they look similar to CRS/CBS, it's amazing how much brighter they are.. the whites are so solid, and the black is inky. Can't wait to see if they breed.

YES! Haha. A word of caution though.. they're much more sensitive than CRS.. you'd want your water quality to be quite stable. Pretty sure they need RO, although I could be wrong there. Stability seems to be the key. Any sudden changes are bad.

dont tempt me! I'm actually quite happy with my crs now. I prefer the brighter red instead of the wine red. I do wish the whites were stronger though. I'll wait a few years until they become more hardy or manage to get consistent blue bolts and bkk.

CRS can actually have some really REALLY bold, solid white. It depends on the quality. If you have a look at my other thread here, you will see some of my high quality Pure Bloodline (PBL) shrimps.

They look as nice as TBS, but they're rare, and IF you can find some, they're going to be very expensive.
