And then there's people like me who enjoy selective breeding DBV (Dark Blue Velvets). LOL All depends on the look you want.

These BD (Blue Diamonds) are awesome though!

Those are beauties too. How stable are the genetics?

Nick, how often do chocolate female throwbacks occur in the BD line?

He said they breed true, so that should mean never

If you mean Nick, the sales thread mentions dark brown females.

If SS, I must have missed that. Thanks.

About 95% or more. By that I mean they still throw the occasional DBV light (as I call them), but even they are darker than the regular BVs I have in another tank.

Well, since BD are from Chocolates, that would make sense. Even with the darkest chocolates, they are almost never 100% as they throw some other variations of colors as well occasionally. Some people like the variations since they are able to be kept with each other and not have to worry about colors crossing. Some people not so much.

Doesn't mean I don't love my chocolate shrimp though.

Sooooo does anyone else find it funny that these beautiful shrimp show up at the same time petco is having there $1 a gallon sale. It would appear as if the universe feels that there are not enough shrimp tanks out there already lol.
