It's interesting to watch BD. They look like black tigers/royal blues roaming around my tank minus the sensitivity. Mine range for from dark brown to black to navy blue.

I think the current price is actually very acceptable as well for what you get. They're gorgeous! By far one of the prettiest neos of all time.
Got 11, one was DOA, lost two yesterday. So now there's 8.

This one shows that there's some bluish tint...maybe more maroon, but it's in there. This is the "chocolate" female...

Nice looking shrimp. I'm tempted to set up another tank to keep these guys. The variation of solid colors is a plus for this type of shrimp IMO.
