My Dream Blue again

So three weeks in my tank one little female is now berried.



A nice male.


A different shade of blue.


What are you staring at?




They are feeding on a piece of BW Colour, you can see how small they still are.





For some reason they don't like blanched spinach, only interested in commercial food. Probably what they were fed at the breeder.

Until next time, happy shrimping ...

Oh, here is one more. Look at the dark blue/black marking on its back. If you look only at the head up to the marking, it's like it is double headed (if you get what I mean)

They're a neo, selectively bred from blue rili's, and he brought them back directly from Taiwan about a month ago.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

I believe they are available in the states too, might need to look around but they are out there.
