I am subscribing and will be watching and will let you know if I find out anything else that might help as it seems we are doing the same thing, though you are farther along.

Yeah I was planning in the long run to mix BVs in my gene pool. I'm sort of due for some new blood anyway. I'm pretty sure the original blue rili batch that was floating around was from the same source. I ended up mixing some from oh when he still had his stock which have me what I have produced so far.

Thanks! Yeah I know I've had my doubts seeking them off but who really selectively breds neos anymore. Everyone's on the tigers and bee bandwagon, so I'm doing something different. Yeah I feel like adding too much takes away space, but that's my personal opinion. I'd rather just put a lot of moss and a UGF or a RUGF.

I got them from a local guy who got them from Speedie. As of now they're in my breeder box hanging out letting them get use to the tank parameters these guys a still pewees.

Regarding Blue Velvet x Blue Rili, it's not really a cross at all; Blue Velvets are a selectively bred Blue Rili, so you will end up with getting darker blue, more solid Blue Rilis in your colony. Which is what you'd want, I'd expect. Hopefully they'll breed soon!
Yeah it's been a hell of a ride. I figured they were the same as soon as Speedie first brought them in. Yeap that's was I'm aiming for a blue version of a PFR or even a Bloodymary lol these names are interesting.

Yeah, I'd love to see PFR x Blue Velvet.

Edit -- then we'd have Red Velvet Shrimp, right?

Anyone have experience with rose moss? I got a portion that was melting with some shrimp. What are the requirements for it to thrive?

Edit

So the shrimp love to pull and move around the rose moss from the mesh. I eventually caught all the stems that were floating around and put them in a net . It seems like some moss seems to be bounching back on a few tips of the dead pieces. So I'm just going to have to wait for it to grow out and retie it.

So both tanks have been pumping out babies even for the CRS. Between last night and just now I see little candy cane babies
picking at the walls and moss. I hope these guys can make it know how the first 2-3 weeks CRS babies are a little sensitive
to their new surroundings.

The full blue rilis a chugging along as usual getting bluer and bluer as generations pass. The blue velvets are still not up to breeding size, I want them to beed with my stock already.Since us NYers had a first meeting err I've added some new mini
xmas moss from Eeng and assassin snails from Mr Brongher. Thanks Guys!

Do snail shells regenerate after a while? I think the assassin snails got banged up while I was in the cit and making my way home,
poor guys.

Yeah Lol those are my culls. Yeah I know some of these guys are blue. The reason I keep the blue ones in is to keep the blue gene strong in them so that they throw out more blues than red.

That's a good idea, if you ever want to sell some of the red/blue rilis, I can probably take some in a little while.

Are any of the pictures of a blue velvet, i might have missed it?
