TiBee Advice


I was searching through some forums and these caught my eye.
I have a few questions, before I decide to get them or not:
(These are TT x Snow White)
#1: What parameters are ideal for these guys to breed/live in?
#2: Would you mix these guys with CRS? (Color/breeding wise)
#3: Would you say TiBees are harder to keep then CRS (your opinion)

1. I would say whatever conditions the tank owner had them in
2. That's if they aren't sterile. Some are some aren't. Most likely aren't. If you want to see what happens then go ahead. It's hard to say what will happen since Tibees aren't always documented.
3. I would say it would depend on parents, since its a TTxgolden CRS I would expect something along the lines of CRS stability. Like if it was an OEBTxTB cross, I'd imagine it being very fragile in comparison to TTxCRS

Oh thanks! More of my questions:
Do tibees breed true?
Will they survive in 74-76F during the summer?
Do they "need need" RO to survive?

Do tibees breed true though?
What do you mean? like will Tibees spit out CRS or Tigers?

Probably not, you'll probably get more Tibees I assume. Mine never bred again after though.

Yea I meant like will they spit on CRS/tigers. Really? What do you mean they never bred again? Like the population just died off?

some crosses just dont work. my mystery "green tiger" female and male i have no clue where they came from and i am starting to think she is not fertile. she will get berried but every time with in a week of due date she starts dropping eggs. 2 berries now and still not a single egg makes it. im not sure if she eats them or just drops them but poof they are gone. i think liam had the same type thing happen with one of his crosses but i think it was a cardxneo cross the babys would get berried but drop or lose eggs

Whew. I thought I was a goner for a sec. He said he is selling the offspring, so they are fertile.

Just means the parents were fertile, not necessarily the offspring. Tibees breed more tibees. I don't know what else you mean by true. They'll look different depending on what you breed them to. Getting a stabilized color will likely take forever and multiple tanks I have about 60 Tibee babies, none look like the parents yet and they are all different colors. But I have different Tibee crosses than what you are looking at. Look up my Tibee thread and you can see the parents and what some of the babies look like. Mine seem to be pretty hardy but they are bumblebees x super tiger crosses which is likely a much hardier cross than say, CRS x OEBT or something like that.

My honest advice, leave them for someone who is going to buy them and breed them out and has the tanks, RO water if needed, etc, to actually keep them.

You need to worry about your CRS first, as you've had a few "my CRS are dying or dead" threads in the past couple of months.

Pics for Soothing!
This is the reason why I can't resist.
I'm not really going to do a "mass breeding" with these guys, and you guys know I can't, it's just something for me to look at in my room. The tank would be a little too small for large numbers anyways. He said he keeps his TDS around 120 with RO, and uses Africana.

I saw these also on aquabid however I am suspect of this person as when I asked questions he wasn't very forthcoming with his reply.

He states its a cross of OEBT x Snow white (which is CBS based) so you will probably get more of a black/white mix than a red/white mix. They did look kinda cool. Tigers/Tibee shrimps on the whole don't like low PH, they prefer around 7 + Ive had Tibees jump out of a tank with PH of 6.5
so now I keep mine in PH 7.6 and they seem to be much happier.

I have Tibees (Bengal Tiger shrimps) my own hybrid version (TT x Red Tiger x F1 offspring) they are all fertile and I have a few berried females
right now. The offspring are all a stable coloration/marking now in F3.
