One fishroom I want to visit is Dan's, he runs a angelfish hatchery in Parkesburg, which is about an hour from me. I'm located in delco right outside southwest philly. Come summer time I'm gonna make a trip and pick up some breeding stock and start raising angels. That's IF I don't catch an auction win for some of River11's angels on aquabid. I'd probably still visit and buy another strain just to support a local breeder.

Blue pearls are clear, with a light blue tint. Not sure if you were expecting a solid blue color or something?

The shrimp you purchased are still juveniles, they become a bit darker as they mature. Blue pearls vary in color, as stated here -"Blue Pearl Shrimp range in color from almost white to a nice light blue color. The intensity of their blue depends on genetics and the water conditions of the shrimp. As with most species the female is more colorful and is generally a darker blue color." So, I would say check your water parameters also and make sure they are on a dark substrate. Please pm me in the future if you have further questions about your purchase. Thanks! Enjoy your new shrimp.

No, I understood they were light blue. They are just young. I understand.

Yep, in the photos you can see the larger more mature shrimp have more blue hue next to the smaller juvies, but not all are going to be SUPER blue, color varies.
