Here we go! Got some decent pics of the TTxSS CRS shrimplets. Today I managed to net 5 of them into a medium sized breeder box I have on the right side of the tank now. Each pic is of a different shrimplet, but they all seem to have the same pattern, enjoy!

In other updates, I have actual just regular TT shrimplets now as well! They can't be more than 2 days old but definitely yellow/orange with the black spots on bottom.
There are 3-4 berried SS+-SSS CRS too, and a few more girls that'll be ready to breed in around a month.
The CBS in the breeder box on the left are doing well and getting bigger. Just a few weeks from breeding age and there's definitely at least one or two girls in there..

Removed the ceramic from my moss tiles as my ph had climbed up to 8.8 with 20L of aquasoil Amazonia/Malaya, 500grams of sera peat pellets, 60grams of borneowild Humic, and about 8 Indian almond leaves.. There wasn't anything else in the tank that could possibly be causing it other than the ceramic. And as soon as I removed the ceramic the tank ph started dropping and my shrimp started acting normal again. Quite a rude awakening, but there was one tile that was cracked clean in half and another that was chipped. I'm guessing that openness to the water caused a leeching and raised the ph. Either way, the SS mesh with moss are fine and still in the tank, and everything seems to be going well now.

Quick FTS of the setup currently


I need to get some clip on lights, another large breeder box or two.. Possibly 3..

I may scape this tank one of these days, but for now I'm not worried about it. It's a shrimp tank with some plants, not a planted tank with some shrimp, plus, the shrimp don't seem to mind at all :p

Well, I got a big update for this tank/journal coming tonight/tomorrow!

The TTxCRS hybrids are pretty much adults now, at least breeding age anyways now. Have 1 or 2 berried TT's as well. No more CRS though, they all died out from my RO/DI water ph always being 7-8 ph. The PFR's are all going strong as usual however. The big update has to do with some new additions I'm adding for my breeding program, namely 10x Caridina Sulawesi from petshrimp.com, and 30 or so Tiger shrimp that are mostly TigerxCRS hybrids from zeldar here on the forum.

Pics tonight with some more info! Questions/comments welcome! ⛄

Well it's taken me a bit longer to get some decent pics. I'm still out a camera and have misplaced the macro lens for my iPhone, the new arrivals are also only 1/4" at best so ya.
Here we go tho!


TT's, PFR's, and TigerxCRS


Caridina Sulawesi


PFR's, TTxCRS, TigerxCRS

Sorry for the quality of the pics. All the crosses are F1's currently. F2's should be in another 2-4 months. Going to work on another lens/camera in the meantime! ⛄

Default New Additions 7/29 Pics

Found my macro lens! Here's a few more pics!

Caridina Sulawesi







Red Tiger x CRS







Tangerine Tiger x CRS



Should make for an interesting breeding group.. See what I come up with here in another generation or two. My end goal is a stable unique patterned shrimp that is very hardy and able to thrive in ph 6-8. Basically breed and live like neo's ^^

Nothing too exciting here, but a decent vid of one of the Red Tiger x CRS(also a TT x CRS, and some PFR's):

Did you ever get a good handle on why you could not keep the PH down?

something is strange there, I cannot imagine why the PH would be so high.

wow interesting crosses, didn't know serrata could x cantonensis, subbed!

Those sulawesi are malawa shrimp. Were you able to cross them with anything else?

Nice yeah thanks, serrata can definitely cross with cantonensis as you can see ^^

And hmm.. I'm pretty sure these aren't malawa shrimp, I've seen those and they're generally bigger and colored differently. These that I have are a currently undisclosed species that hasn't been classified yet, but they are caridina's like crs, just from the Sulawesi area instead of southeast Asia.
