^ Yeah that's what I'm saying.
The pics are from the first gen that I bought from the LFS, some of my babies now actually do look exactly like yours, out of 10 babies I would say I get 2-3 like yours, and the rest are mixes of browns and light blues, or even blacks just with white cracks in some parts of the shells. I don't get all blues like you might though, so I might have the gene, but not the same shrimp.
Mine are indeed blue neos, but they aren't light blue like blue velvets. They're about as blue as a lot of the dark OEBT you gave me, some are as black as a low grade BKK.
Either way, you've got me really excited. Keep us posted on when you get these bad boys up for sale. I would love to spruce up my own colony!
