I'm curious as to what you all do with the more desirable offspring that are produced from a group of mischling. Would it be OK to keep them with the same group in hopes of broadening the chances of more offspring like it or put them in a different tank if there are more than one of the same kind of "desirable" offspring.

These are my only caridina species so I'm curious as to what route to go.

you could go either way really. the more tb you have the grater the chance of getting more. some only keep female mischlings in with their tb so only male tb can pass on the genetics and have a higher chance at more tb

Let's get a little more detailed with what I have and mind you that I am a rookie so please be understanding if I ask basic questions or don't understand certain terminology.

I bought the Mischlings as a group of twenty from sbarbee54. I have recently had a few groups of offspring produced. There are a few that are what looks like VERY dark blue/black with one white stripe above the tail with white on the tail. Another is the same but with two white stripes. Neither of the stripes wrap around the entire body, just on their backs.

Can I put these in their own tank and see what happens when they breed or should I just keep them with the group of Mischlings?

Will the black offspring I have now, produce a majority of ones like themselves or more mischlings?

Advice is passed down, as I did not learn all this on my own! Sean the above has helped a bunch, Nick, guppies (who is no longer around), Plamski, Randyl, and many more people including the breeders I talk to in Jap, Euro, and Taiwan.... I am a open book and will share everything I have been tought or found on my own. I want this hobby to grow 10X full over its current US conditions. Only way to do that is have everyone share info!
