They ARE mutts I used to not like them either, didn't think I'd like them still when I got them in, but I love them now. Some are just a vibrant and blue as my OEBTs without the drama The little baby I saw looked brown and white so can't wait to see what the others look like. It'll be like Christmas! All a surprise! WOOT

Thought I would update this thread a bit Bebeh pictures! Sorry for the quality...still gotta get my equipment out and actually practice...just so much easier to grab the phone.

Ok, first little baby born in the tank...this is him at a day old (and yes he was the only one out and about, took momma two days to have the rest)



Same shrimp at 6 days old, my light is blowing out the contrast on his striping, but trust me, same shrimp



He changes colors every week....here he is now (he's the biggest baby in the tank..strong like bull...haha)




Then I had two more batches born, some are still dark red and white or brown and white, again, they change colors frequently.

Here is a pic of two together, one on the left is from the first batch born, one on the right is from the second batch born...what I wouldn't give for him to stay that color.

A pic of another baby from the second batch as well

And last photo I took yesterday with my camera instead of phone. Couple of tibee females and my OEBT and if you look closely, a baby tibee on the bottom of the pumpkin chip

[IMG][/IMG]

I'm going to make this thread my tibee journal of sorts so I hope I have more updates (and better pics) soon. Thanks for letting me share!

I have so much fun staring at this tank. Babies are just everywhere....no new berried ladies yet so a little bummed about that but as long as the babies are growing big and strong I'm happy. I think they are absolutely beautiful and awesome so a huge thank you for selling them to me!!!

My pleasure! I bred them by accident, those are 3rd generation, as an FYI. I have only shared them with people that were really enthusiastic about tibees as I did not create the line at all on purpose. There were some real stunners though, and I am glad you are getting such joy!

Thank you SO Much for the FYI! Because I had no clue and just figured they were first line. I've totally changed my mind I think on adding TTs into this tank. I want to focus on bringing the blue out as much as I can.

Busted out the DSLR to snap some pics today. Little better than the Iphone but still need to work with it.

My dual sponge is covered with babies. Counted 41 babies out in the open the other day so very pleased with those numbers since I can't see the backside of my sponge filters or in all my cholla logs. The blue dude is one from the first batch born 3 weeks ago I believe. The little browner guy is from the last two batches born a couple of weeks ago so a bit younger.

Cool stuff looking forward to following their growth. I am interested in the TiBees. Seem to not be quite as popular as some others on the boards here.

Eventually but right now I'm letting these grow up so I can start some selective breeding projects These are by far the fastest growing babies I've ever had...even outgrowing neos that were born at the same time.

I found another really neat one today, it is brown and white and the banding is almost as bold as a crystal red. I will save it for you.
