One of a few that my chocolates spat out. You're lucky, I usually dont get them within camera picture range thanks to my crap iphone lol
One of the less solid examples. I have more somewhere in the tank....

Neat. I saw these on AB today and immediately liked how they look.

I'll never actually try to buy them, but they are neat can't wait to see what Nick does with them.

How long do people think it will take to establish the carbon rili line so that the prices come down? I'd love some of these guys but sadly Schooling drains the bank account anytime I save money to acquire awesome shrimp :P

It may be a year or two. Chocolate first appeared over $100 ea. Now they are $10 ea. I bought these for $15 ea. a couple months ago. Who knows what they'll be in a yr or two?

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

Thanks, once my BKK Pandas start producing I am going to try and acclimatize some babies in pH 6.5 so I can have them in with some Panda loaches.

That's not my favourite coloured Carbon I have, I prefer the blue ones.

I already have Blue Velvets, so I actually like the clear and black ones better. They also look more carbon fiber-ish to me also.
