Blue Jellies are a cross between BKK x CW, both of which are Caridina. And they are much much much more expensive than $15. Clay, if you bought them as Blue Jellies, complain.

Because they make up "better names" or different name so you can't know if they all come from. The same place?
Are aura blues neos?
These "blue jelly" are labels neos.
And there not blue pearls.

Its body is still very clear, maybe it takes awhile to color up. I am interested to see what they are. Any more pics?

Ok, just got back from the Expo.

The problem with shrimps right now is that everyone who has a special color variant gets to call them whatever they want and there really isn't any standard naming convention.

The Blue Jellies I have are neocaridina denticulata if you ask US fish and wildlife. I've also seen them listed as neocaridina heteropoda. Same as cherries. In fact you can find cherries listed as both denticulata and heteropoda. Yay for conflicting information.

As for the pic from crimson taiwan, I think that pic is just mislabeled. On another page on the same site he has the same pic listed as "blue crystal shrimp". Either way, I really wish I could get a hold of them for $15 per shrimp

To the person who asked about the PFR grading scale, I'm not sure there is an official scale out there. Breeders have simply started using the grades from CRS to indicate quality on PFR as well. I can tell you that these PFR are solid red, with no white or clear spots on them at all. They look like little cooked lobsters lol.

I'll be trying to get some more and better pics up over the weekend. I'm still waiting on some of my shipping supplies to come in, so I'm delaying my sales until then.

The Blue Jellies are hard to photograph (at least with my camera lol). Their beauty lies in their translucence. They have light blue bodies with a darker blue "core" running through them. It's a really neat looking shrimp. Their eggs are even translucent.
