A confuses me, that's like blue and black or darkblue? I had a couple As and ended up culling them to my mud bucket.

I thought B was the ultimate goal, PFR red & blue pearl blue?



One on top is probably my nicest one they both had those babies, a lot seem to be entirely red (PFR-ish), but too early to tell.

Well said, IMO I think this should be the definition of "rili". Solid colors on each end separated by clear part in the middle.

So tomorrow is the last day of the year, show what you got guys! For some reason I'm really interested on the "A" grade of rili shrimps. Either true blue rili or carbon rili would be awesome. Lets see what 2013 will bring us!

I'm willing to pay $10 a pop for a blue or carbon rili by January.

Edit: someone selling 10x blue carbon rili (like blue velvet x black carbon) on Aquabid for $220 minimum bid

I'm was working on my own line very similar to carbons before carbons came out. LOL

I call them boxer shrimp (because they look bruised LOL), but still waiting for some juvies to grow large enough to breed. Here's a pic I took earlier this year of one while it was still a juvie:



It would be considered a rili of sorts, but obviously doesn't fall into that exact category.

I'd also be interested in knowing who is breeding for a dark blue midsection while retaining the red on head and tail. (photo B)

So far, it seems as if I'm one of the only ones who is trying to continue to breed for that look. I think it really could look beautiful!
