This blue bolt is just fantastic

For a lower grade I'm quite impressed, I was expecting a lot less blue. Here is the male I got in today along with 8 cbs from Nick. Female coming in a week or so from now from different source. Can't wait to see the new blue bolts Speedie is bringing in, those are going to look divine.

Great looking shrimp! thanks for sharing. Im sure they'll color up in the tank.

What are you doing with just one blue bolt :O?

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

No just so happens supplier had one high grade female left so I took, and lucked out with this male. I guess I could think of it that way.

I've read 98% true in a search on planted tank, don't know how accurate that is.

Truly incredible color! When buying more, I'd go back to the same seller since he's proven his stock!

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
