Interesting. No bueno. I haven't ever seen pink bacteria before lol.

Anybody ever had this much?

Nice looking shrimp. Bout that pink stuff after nubster said bacteria I googled pink bacteria and it seems fairly common. Happens in toilets and showers all the time. You could easily test to see if it's bacteria or not, just get a petri dish and some agar and get a sample and culture it. If it grows you can take a better pic and maybe identify it.

"These airborne bacteria can come from any number of naturally occurring sources, and the condition can be further aggravated if customers remove the chlorine from their water by way of an activated carbon filter. In recent years, the popularity of home water filtration systems has grown tremendously, and the presence of Serratia has appeared more and more frequently in homes which remove the chlorine disinfection from the water supply. Serratia can also grow in tap water in locations such as toilets in guest bathrooms where the water is left standing long enough for the chlorine residual disinfectant to dissipate. Serratia will not survive in chlorinated drinking water. The public water supply in Eden Prairie contains just enough chlorine to provide safe, disinfected drinking water at your tap, and when left standing in an open container for as little as 30 minutes, our tap water looses its chlorine disinfectant into the atmosphere."
That was from http://edenprairieweblogs.org/scottneal/post/1338/

Wow. Very interesting. Thanks for that quote. Glad to know it is pretty harmless. Better to know I don't have any chlorine in the water lol.

Alright sub tigers out for blonde OBETs. Think those would still accentuate the BDs?

Blondes will through out blue aswell won't they? I know blue will spit out blondes but not sure bout vice versa, I'd assume they would.

That is correct, my friend. They would.

I'd probably sell off the darker blues.

Yeah, the blue ones will just blend in. I'd like to do OEBT's again but I don't want to deal with their water requirements. I'm very happy right now that my regular tigers seem to be doing well in current conditions and of course the BD's are fine considering they are neos. Now if I could just get some breeding going on.

Well.. I'd kill to get a few of your tigers lol. Dukenbears has OBETS in water just like ours. Roughly 7 PH. Around 70 degrees. 1 KH and 6-8gh.

That's sweet that he has them in similar water. I mean like you said, you could ask for all blondes and sell off the darker ones for some aquarium money. The blondes would certainly be a nice contrast. Even the blues would be cool to have, they just wouldn't stand out from the BD's. Once my tigers start breeding (I hope they do anyways), if you're still interested, I'll definitely let you know and I can get some up your way.

I'll take ye up on that. I am passing ATM on the OBETS. I would prefer to either load up on biofilm, or I'll start with an easier tiger like those. Wondering how tangerine tigers might look.

Probably pretty sweet. I'm not a fan of them personally but I think they'd look good. I wish you could mix the BD's with PFR's. That would be a sweet pairing. I'm going to start up my 12" cube tank this weekend I think. Not adding shrimp for a couple weeks, just getting it running to build up biofilm. I'll be culling my best PFR's into that tank then I might get another small tank for my office and using that for culls/PFR growout. If I get my office to myself like I'm suposed to, I may go with another Mr. Aqua 11g tank for that instead of a little tank.

Impressive! Yeah I had a few TTs die off on me. I love your PFRs. Stabilizing a 100% bright red male/female strain would be an epic task.

I also think they'd look incredible together. I suppose if you got them acclimated, there are red cardinia options.

I'm going to try to let these guys breed out. I just need them to breed first. I can't seem to induce a berry >/.

Keep me posted on your tank. Will it have the Buddha in it?!

I had one berried but she's not shown herself recently and no shrimplets yet. I wish my BD's weren't so shy. My super blue boy comes out pertty often and there's a couple small juvie blackies that are out a bit, but my two dark brown females I don't see often.

Not sure on the Buddha. I might save that for the other tank if I get another 11g Mr. Aqua.

I have a berried tiger and several fresh molts in the tank. Give it a month or so and I may have a few tigers to send your way!
