Here's my tiger x pumpkin crosses, only 2 of the clutch survived to be born. These are them grown up. Both female, both get berries every month or so, none of them ever make babies though, and I've tried with both a tiger male and a pumpkin male.

One is greenish, one is reddish. Sorry about quality, best I could do atm.

That is what mine look like! I got some shrimp off a guy and he said they were tigers so I put them with my cherries for a while and then I moved them all out and now I am seeing babies like the first picture and a few adults like the second picture but darker like almost black with a tan/golds line down there backs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYD8zC6qCFs

Looks like a throw back to me, too. Even that has it's charm though.

Just want to share this one, he looked a lot like a tibee when I first spotted him, now it's more like a wild type.

Awesome

The wild variant does have a odd appeal to it. Genetics.. Some crazy crap
