    I know a lot of folks want the more exotic looking cherry shrimp, but these rascals take my breath every time I see them.

    I've been trying to talk my wife into letting me get blue ones for my 20 gallon snail tank.

    Blues would look so good, and you've got enough space to make it look like a bunch of living gemstones. You could tell her that you're worried about how stressed she is and that looking in the tank at beautiful shrimp would help her deal with stress. Sneaky Sneaky Sneaky. LOL

    Lol. She would just tell me she will look at the 75 gallon betta tank.

    Yes. I love all the types of reds. I have some strong colors of cherry, fire red, red Rili, red Rili w/blue body. May eventually get some black tigers again.

    A red rilli with a blue body? Have you got any pics? That sounds amazing.

    I have a few red/light blue rili that have shown up in my random cross breeding experiment. They look really neat. 20180113_162940.jpg

    Here's a neocaridina breeding tree that shows where red rili blues come in, pretty cool:

    Thanks for that. I wondered what the "ingredients" were to produce certain shrimp.
