Berried Orange- Eye Red Tiger

Very excited that I noticed a berried female OERT this morning! I am attaching 2 videos because both offer better views of certain shrimp. There is one shrimp that is smaller and has really great red-colored stripes-- much deeper than the larger Tigers.



These guys seem to be much healthier than the Royal OEBT that I have struggled to keep.

Oh yeah, you're about to have shrimplets! Hope these do great for you, as you know my luck with OEBTs has been about the same. They mostly live, occasionally pop out a random baby, but won't populate the tank. Tangerine tigers and supers both did much better for me, and in community tanks! Those reds are very pretty. Curious to see if there's variation among the babies.

Im wondering if they start out redder in the stripes like that smaller one and as they age if their red stripes get less bright?
I am surprised at how big they get. They appear larger than the OERBT.

@somewhatshocked
@Zoidburg

Do you know? Do the stripes fade in color with age?

That's actually not something I've heard of or come across, being as I don't have striped tigers and all... I do know that Caridina tend to color up faster than Neos do... and that color can be based on genetics, diet and stress levels.

I suspect though that that little one may be a "super red", as in, it will grow up to be redder than the parents? Time will tell!

Thank you! This little guy came to me brighter red than the others and has stayed brighter. In person it is so much nicer than the others. Not that the others aren't nice, but the red on that little one is something entirely!
Its fascinating to me all the little differences that these different varieties of shrimp express. You find yourself having lots of questions that come up as you notice these traits that you just have to settle for "wait and see".
Just part of the fascination of shrimp-keeping, I guess.

My Tigers have always thrown myriad different stripes. Some thick, some dark, some light. They just tend to develop/mature as they age but I don't think I've ever seen a drastic difference from juvenile stage to adulthood.

Only ones that haven't thrown major stripe variations for me are "Super" Tigers. But there's still some slight variation even among those. Regular old Supers are my favorite because they're not as popular in the hobby.

Will be interesting to see how your reds breed out and develop.

I'll shoot a video next water change. 20 of them in that tank and I rarely see them except for then. I expect they'll settle in and get comfortable after a while, but they're laying low most of the time.

That would be great!

My green jade shrimp come today! Excited to see them.
