  1. Congratulations on your win. Sorry for delay but site was down  I give all my customers the option of paying with family and friends and I will include 3 extra shrimp or pay with goods and services and it will be the posted 10 plus 1.  Totally your choice. My paypal is smallkine.shrimp@gmail.com.  if it's easier you can text me at 425.864.1886. 

  2. Personally my favorite plant that fits that description is Hydrocotyle triparta 'japan'. It sends out beautiful trailing vines. It is a plant that benefits from training, by trimming it to encourage certain growth patterns.
  3. I know this isn't very helpful now, but if you haven't found any Malawa by next spring, send me a PM. I had a colony of several hundred until a CO2 related disaster brought that down to under 30, so it'll be several months before I have enough to part with some. Hopefully someone currently has enough to sell though.
  4. Also, while I have lost 90% of my source material I was working off of, I did find a rough sketch of a chart for some of my findings. I know some of what I found was suspect and needed further corroboration, but I'll attach a picture here. If anybody notices any glaring inaccuracies please let me know, it will greatly help going forward. Also, If anyone has any suggestions for facebook groups, foreign language forums (praise google translate), or any other good places to find good info, that would help as well.
  5. Main question: Is the main reason why some wild shrimp species are called Tigers and others Bee just because some have thin stripes and other have large sections, or is there some other reason for this naming convention? So I'm getting back into the shrimp hobby after a few years absence, and as I'm getting a little overwhelmed at all the new varieties I decided it might be a good idea to go back to one of the projects I was starting when I quit: to research the history of the various shrimp varieties to really understand what comes from what and how. Now I know that Soothing and o
  6. I hate finding old threads with no resolution, so here is a final update. Long story short, never had the orange eye red stripe pattern pop up again and the whole colony died. I ended up having a heater malfunction that wiped out most of my shrimp, and the few that survived ended up in other tanks with fish. The population limped along for a while but as of a year ago when I moved and really stripped down tanks and took inventory, there were no more Tangerine Tigers.
  7. Another small update. For a while I had had the shrimp in an in-tank cloth breeder box, but as the holes were starting to grow algae and making it hard to see, I moved them to a Marina HOB which I put on the front of the tank for visibility. A few days later the female became berried for a 3rd time. However after about a week and a half when I checked in on them the eggs were gone again. At this point I am going to split them into two separate breeder boxes. The first will have the male, along with several female regular TTs. I should have done that a while ago. The second box will have the fe
  8. Sorry guys, I got busy with work and school and hadn't visited the site in a while. I wish I had more to update with. Both shrimp are still alive. I believe one is male and one is female. The female has been berried THREE times now, but there have not been any babies. I don't know if the babies somehow all died or if she dropped the eggs or what. The eggs have been a light tan color, which is different from the darker brown that most TT eggs are. I am hoping that she isn't somehow sterile or something. Hasn't been berried in about a month though. Should I add some more normal individuals to th
  9. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I like TTOE for a working name. If I ever establish a viable strain I can rethink that. I think I will move the TTOE to their own 5.5g. They are a little too young to sex, but in case they are males I am thinking about putting a few adult females in. Now of my adults, about 60% have standard TT coloration, and the other 40% are paler like the TTOE. Would it be smart to go with the paler adult females in hopes that they are where the TTOE came from?
  10. So I have a handful of really unique looking TT babies, and they have finally gotten old enough that I think this will be their adult coloration. There are at least 3 of these. They have orange eyes, they are paler than the other TTs, and their stripes appear to be red instead of black. I posted a blurry picture on another forum a while ago and was told it was probably just a cull OEBT, but I had the TTs for about 3 months before these offspring showed up, so I am reasonably certain these are actual TT offspring. I have included a few pictures. The first is of the unique TT offspring. The 2nd
