Shrimp Spotlight: Japanese Black Pintos

Hello Everyone, 

I hope everyone is doing well during this crazy heatwave we are experiencing. Remember to stay cool and seek effective and efficient cooling methods for tanks during these hot days. 

The weather has been testing the upper 80s and low 90s where I live so I've dust off last year's DIY PC cooling fans and attached them to my tanks. Hot days like these really reminds me just how thankful I am that I spent time and effort into making these very awesome fans last summer!

I devoted some time last weekend to take photos of my Japanese Black Pinto colony. I'm proud to announce that my colony is thriving and doing exceptionally well.  I've even managed to recoup my initial investment a loooong time ago by selling some Pintos locally.

It has been very exciting breeding Pintos these past couple of months because babies are so robust and active and interesting to observe. I wonder if this robustness has anything to do with their Tiger bloodline mixing during their creation process. Pintos are definitely more active and voracious eaters compared my CRS and JRB.

Anyways, please enjoy the photos!

Shrimp Spotlight: Blue Bolt

Hi Folks!

Not much happening in my shrimping world as of late, but I wanted to provide an update with some good news. Some might already know, but a while back, I had a mishap. This mishap just so happened to cause a large casualty in my Blue Bolt/Panda population. This was... deviating, to say the least! I was down to my very last "pure" Blue Bolt (female) and Panda (male) that I was riding my hopes on. It was a big relief to discover that after moving the remaining pair to a new tank, they successfully bred and now I have a larger colony of Blue Bolts/Pandas Taiwan Bees to try to rebuild my once thriving colony. 

To my luck, it just so happen that my female and male were of exceptional grade. I'm very fond of my female so I'm sharing photos of her with everyone tonight! Please enjoy!!

Up Close and PERSONAL!
