    Hi Imke,

    Your bluish tiger maybe not a mixture, I have seen even a bluish one from LFS while they opened the bag which was directly from the catcher. I am sure those shrimps are wild caught.

    I totally agree; by mixture I meant that they have different genes and some tend to show up as blue Tiger black eye. As Elisa has shown, you can also do selection on stripes color which can be black, magenta or even fill red. I like Tiger so much because you can still do selection on them

    I like the female on the last pic very much; it has wide stripes and a slight blue body. Besides; I'll do selection on red antennas if I have built up a breeding group.

    Hi Imke,

    the pictures are great! Especially I like the first both. It's a pity, that I can't photograph like you.

    Best regards and have a nice evening

    Just a short update: I have around 40-60 shrimp babies in my Tetra; where the berried females live until they release. I have one little shrimp with orange eyes?!? Will check the small ones when they are older, again. The biggest have no 1.5 cm; the smallest are only a few Millimeters.

    Here is what I have found beneath my 'Supertiger'. Have I been cheated again? Where do the orange eyes come from? Besides the unwanted coloration of the eyes, this shrimps does not recommend for further mating due to it's body shape. God, I need patience!

    The seller replied that his strains relies purely on wild-caught Supertiger but that he sometimes has orange eye and bluish offspring, too. Looks like this Tiger show are wide genetic pool. Here are some new pics of the tank:

    Interesting find Imke, did you isolate that particular shrimp from the rest? I recently acquired some "Supertigers" too; however, the stripes are not as defined as my old colony and the head and tail is not as yellow colored. At this point I am hesitant to introduce the two colonies together.

    I haven't separated them yet, but definitely will do in anyway. Besides, I would not mix your strains - think the new ones will corrupt your old group (which is really pretty).

    hi, correct me if i'm wrong but i always notice that tigers are the most "compatible" and versitile breed. In the sense that you can mix them with most other breeds and come out with something interesting. Is this true base on your experience?
