New Dark Blue Velvets!

I think the most impressive thing that you did was able select breed em to produce consistance off spring. That show some skill

Beatiful shrimps.

Thanks guys, and I agree that Duck has done an outstanding job on those photos!

So many times the camera will add or take away colors- Ryan did an excellent job at keeping them true.

Thanks everybody! These little guys never stop moving so its a real challenge trying to get them to pause for a picture. After all shrimp have a busy busy day, they've got moss to clean, food to eat, eggs to make!!! lol Little update on these DBV's, they keep getting darker! They are really coloring up nicely as they get used to their new home. I'll try and get some more pics later, or may just go video again as it is sometimes easier

Am stoked you like them Han!

Give them a day or so and they'll be even darker. They tend to get lighter from stress in shipping.

Feel free to share any pics.

Call it pride, but I LOVE seeing my shrimp in other people's tanks. LOL

Re: New Dark Blue Velvets!

I would to!!!
They were super active to!

Let see how they are when I get home later

I can't believe how dark the single shrimplet was. I could only see it because it was dark blue!

Pictures These shrimp are coloring up beautifully and they are still not near adult size. I fed them this morning and got some group shots and have a couple singles (they are all different shrimp), however i cant seem to get good pictures of the darkest few! Anyway, enjoy!

Ahhhhhhhhhh. So nice to see someone's pics that KNOWS how to shoot pics- NOT like me. LOL

I see they are coloring up nice for you. Awesome! I know they have very good color for me, but ALWAYS good to see how they grow in other people's params.

How are yours H4N? Better color as they are growing?

Re: New Dark Blue Velvets!

Great!
Here's a good comparison on how dark blue they are.

And those some dark blue OEBT.

There 3 DBV and 3 OEBT in the feeding dish.
