I think 2 different blue neo's made babies together, so Should I be worried soothing about wild colored babies?

LOL I think the reason there are not a lot of responses is that not a lot of people have tried BV x BP

I'm guessing you'll have wild colored, but that's all it is...a guess.

BV come from red shrimp, so I am guessing you are not going to get deep blue shrimps, but rather a bunch mixed stuff, heck it's worth a try and prove me wrong. It will be fun. In my experience my BV eat everything I serve them

I didn't mean too mix them, and the second set I think are Not blue velvets maybe blue velvets. I just haven't got hold of her yet to ask her. We will see, I'll know in a few weeks I guess. They just became berried 4 days ago.

I have no idea, I thought I was doing good. Got shrimp from 2 different sources to keep the bloodlines good. Now I think I may have muddyed the waters. The woman I got the unknown shrimp from, I haven't asked her the Latin Name for them. So they could be Blue Velvets or Full Blue rili's. I didn't know there was a difference till you pointed out the website. Then a Big light went off in my head. They might be 2 different types of shrimp and they may make you muddy looking babies. Ugh, Word to the wise, ask your shrimp seller the name of the shrimp before mixing it with another.
I think I may be okay though.

News flash update: I did find a teeny tiny shrimplet and he's blue, bright pretty, just now. he was perched on a algae wafer like king of the mountain. I don't know what they are but they are blue

Ah! I see. They may be blue rili and not blue velvets is what you are saying. Well, even though they are genetically different, they are still neo davidi. So either you have shrimp that stayed to their own kind or an interesting cross.

It'll be interesting to see the results of a palmata x davidi cross. May set you back in coloration or may produce some sexy blue babies.

Ah the joys of genetics

I think I have a few of both!! Some definitely have bright yellow eggs and some have clay colored eggs. I also thing I may have an amano shrimp thrown in there. So the Blue velvets have yellow eggs.

The BV actually have two colors of eggs. They start yellow, and as they near hatching turn orange-red.

O my! Well, There goes that idea of identifying them!! The little baby shrimplets I have found are bright blue, and none of the little ones have been slate colored. Some of the adults are slate-very pale blue. I have a couple that are bright Jelly blue. We will see what else pops out of this mixing. I am trying my hardest to find my camera battery so I can show you. Also for the very first time, I saw my Anacharis stems that I have in there giving off bubbles of oxygen. Coolest thing ever.
