Rolf, Jr. is more toward the T-Rex type, but DK's been gettin' some interesting Broke-Blacks lately that have caused her to think about pulling them and breeding toward an Overo line of blacks. She thinks that would be so coo-el.

Mebbe she'll call 'em Overo Ebony or sumpin' like dat.

Bronco, shown below, is a good start for this line - she has a variety of 'em like him.

Beautiful shrimp and great information. I have been slowly reading through your posts for the past week haha. I do not have a dog, buuuut I do have a little girl spotted turtle named Speedie! She begs just like a dog and loves to have her belly rub.
She is sitting there begging as I clean my oebt tank above her haha

Yes, she does love to have her bellied rubbed and her shell scratched lol. I noticed her rubbing shell on things so I figured I would try rubbing it for her, she loved it! I imagine her shell itches as our skin does when we have a scratch that is healing. I have raised here for a about a year and a half now, she was the size of a nickel when I rescued her. I never thought a turtle could have so much personality and energy. She will follow my finger back and forth along the glass like a dog chasing a stick. Not to mention she has eaten just about any table scrap I give her. She ate kielbasa for the first time the other night haha.

Back on track, your black tigers look amazing. I just got some oebt yesterday. Hoping I can keep them alive.

Finally found it... picture of the original Celebrity Shrimp Rolf. Those of you old timers following, today's Rolf, Jr. (Actually, Rolf III) is somewhere between the original Rolf and his comrade Hansel.

Original Rolf - top
Hansel -next
Today's Rolf III - next
Rolf Jr. c. 3/2011 - bottom

OK, so after fully taking in these pictures of sleekies, and pondering them for a full day of sighing enjoyment, fingers twitching, DK counters with this:

TAKE THAT!!!

YOU WANT PRETTY, DK CAN DO PRETTY!!!

(All pictures posted today were shot today. Yeah, they're lousy pictures, but who cares... they are the awesome results of 2 years of tinkering with DKMSJ.)

And, the MUCH UNDER-RATED beauty of the yellow mama with eyed eggs.

And, the delicious citrus-y punch of an orange mama.

Blue Tiger mama, packin'.

Black Tiger mamas, packin'.

SO THERE!

Those shrimp are very pretty..Really love those shrimp,,but a little gun shy to venture to high end of the water PH column..Those T rex shrimp of yours are something that has been a real object of my desires for my shrimp dreams....Would love get some of those in one my tanks,,really love the black/regular eye version a lot...There is always so much for one to like,but tank space is always the topic...I have set up a shrimp central system and coming very close to things being cycled and have to aquire some stock for some of the tanks on the system....Hoped to put a smile on your face with the female sleekie pictures...

The CRS/CBS are doing great,,the main reason for my new central system..Yup,,,to your question...Is it working by chance..(as I look away with a smiley grin hoping it does work).Just kidding,,not my intentions....
