    Default Project Tibee - Revealed

    Hi all,

    Last November, I started a secret project that in search of methods to breed Pinto and new variant of caridina. I named this initiative as "Project Tibee".

    It has been more than 6 months now and finally, this project has obtained some results and I would like to share with everyone. You can access this article from my blog (it is hard to copy and paste the content into the forum with proper format): http://www.shrimpydaddy.com/2014/06/...-revealed.html

    Enjoy. ^^

    Hi all,

    My F3 Tibee shrimps have grown a fair bit, thus the color and pattern are getting more obvious. They are more active in open area and I managed to capture some pictures of them.

    You can find the pictures in my blog at: http://www.shrimpydaddy.com/2014/06/...ee-update.html

    Cheers.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Do you think crossing taiwan bee (panda, king kong, etc.) with other colour variants of tiges shrimp would also result in interesting, intensly coloured shrimp? Why did you choose blue diamond tigers for this project?

    Color variant tigers are crossing Tiger with Neo. If you cross them again with Taiwan Bee, the offspring will get the common denominator gene. End up, you will have to cross with Taiwan Bee then Neo then Taiwan Bee then Neo and again and again until you get gene mutation. Thus in theory, it will take much longer time but still have tiny possibility.

    To get green bee? Hmm... Not sure. Have to try.

    I ever cross Rili with BKK before (yes, people said Neo does not cross with BKK but I ever did it). The end result is my Rili has black meat and slight black on the red area edge. I think they are able to cross breed may due to both of them have tiger gene.

    Sorry, this is new to me... Is there an article about this? (N. davidi X C. cf. cantonensis)

    No never. Everyone are claiming Neo Davidi (previously known as Heteropoda) do not breed with Caridina Catonensis. Here is a crossbreeding chart that people always follow: http://www.plas.com/Shrimp-Chart3.jpg

    Breeder never comment anything on this, as usual. No one ever tried it after they read that chart.

    If you have available tank, can you do this experiment to prove they do cross-breed? Below is a simple test you need to do:
    1. Have the tank parameter suit Taiwan Bee instead of Neo.
    2. Put 2 matured female Taiwan Bee in the tank.
    3. Put 5 matured male Neo into the tank.
    4. Leave it for up to 6 months. This will force the female to have false pregnancy for a couple of times and it will start to accept the male Neo's sperm. (I did this by crossing Blue Diamond and Taiwan Bee)

    Oh, I thought you referred to a tiger variant as blue diamond (C. cf. cantonensis).. These fantasy names don't really help the shrimp hobby..
    I will certainly do this experiment when I have an extra tank.
    So are you saying that all pintos have Noe genes? And rilis have tiger genes?... I am a bit confused..

    LOL!!! Sorry for all the confusion.

    Pinto, Taiwan Bee, CRS and Rili all have tiger gene. Pinto has Taiwan Bee gene too, which is how I breed out the look alike. For the newer tiger variants, I believe are tiger breed with Neo.

    However at this moment, I believe there are a lot of shrimps may have been mixing gene by the breeder to create new variants. Therefore, our understanding of cross breeding possibility may not be accurate anymore.
