Randy's Random Record

I posted a thread mainly talking a bit about mischling in a local forum. Here is a link to the original thread if you are interested.

Anyway, so I posted a regular berried golden and a mischling golden for comparison. And I kept a closer eye on that particular one. Then... here is the latest post I added. Asking TB breeders' opinion.

[post 17 of the original thread]
---------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I was paying special attention to this particular female mischling since I had her pic posted. And wanted to see how many TBs I got from her this time. I could count at least 8 black eggs in her. Last night I went home at around 12:30, and after feeding all the shrimp tanks I went to look for her. She was motionless under a piece of IAL, I was so sad . So I use something to poke her to make sure she is dead before I remove her from the tank, she then sprang into life I saw only like 3 or 4 eggs left in her belly, so I started looking in the tank for any babies. It's not easy to find new born babies in a tank with chola wood and moss, but I found a tiny blue baby. Yay, another BKK, so I was right. But then.... something is different....

For people who had TB babies, you probably know that black in TB starts with blue, but red isn't as easy to tell from regular CRS babies. At least for me, I find it hard to tell WR babies from regular CRS. I thought at least I can tell black ones from regular CBS....so I was happy to see that blue baby. After a minute or two.... I found something weird. This little guy is not just blue, it has some red in it too. I have not heard that red TB shows up as blue because apparently only black colour shows up as blue in the first few weeks.....so I took a picture (well, I then took over 50).... here you go. I don't know if this is something special, a tri-colour Taiwan bee? I have not seen anything like that anywhere. Here you go, could be something new. Or BKK babies are born like this in the first few hours.



BTW, after I found this one, I saw two others with the same colour. Wish them luck and survive.

Re: Randy's Random Record

I have allot of babies that start blue for my crs cbs and goldens that come from mischlings. Give it a couple weeks.... my experience is it will be a crs. Allot of the white is a light blue when most of my mischlings give birth. Then they turn to white

I don't know anything about TB, however I have to say that if this turns red and black, you have a hot product on your hands!

My thinking has been invert-ed!

Thanks for the information. I'm still figuring out these mischlings, here are the babies that are about 1 month old. I sure hope they turn into TBs.
