Thank you, It's also funny how they all have grayish eye.
Do anyone else have them notice this?

Looks like Speedie's photography skills are what make them look so amazing in pictures. Not quite as vivid as his pictures but still sexy non-the-less. I'm a huge fan of these.

Don't let my pictures be the gauge. These are taken with the iphone 5 and a shaky hand.
It's a joke comparing it to Nick's skill

Anyway, i'm very happy with them. Never been this excited about neo till now.

Haha word. I'm debating between these and the blue diamonds. Probably go the blue diamond route due to more options of color breeding. And $6 cheaper per shrimp doesn't hurt

Yea, i'm drooling over that also.
I got kind of let down when i got chocolate a years back, the offspring consistency were not as good as i wanted. Plus I was too lazy to put the work in.

But the Blue Diamond do look light year ahead of that. Even the male look pretty solid light blue. Too many kinds not enough tank, I'm sure i'm not the only one.

As for em Carbon, one the female have a light blue flesh. Maybe these is the recipe to get some blue dream out of them?

But let's just back up, Hopefully i can make these guys to multiply first

These look fantastic! I will certainly say that a professional or semi professional shooter can make regular schmucks like myself look like 4 year olds with an Ipad

I wonder if a cross between these and blue diamonds would yield anything besides wild colors..

I would guess since they are both so selectively bred that probably wilds would come out of it, but theres only one way to find out.

Who wants to donate to the "lets see what happens with a BD x CR cross just for shoots and giggles", fund? I take paypal or money order.

I have yet to see Blue Diamond in person but the carbon like in the first picture, it have a jet black painted shell.
I do wonder that also but I'm not sure how much more you can improve the painted area.

Year ago, I use to keep Blue rilis and breed mix in some painted fire red to improve the painted red of the head and tails. I was able to get them to be darker but the pattern was the challenging part. Maybe i was working with lower grade shrimps, or just not good enough, the pattern were never as clearly define as these guy (carbon). They were more random. But time will tell, this time around, it's a better starting point than my last attempt.

Plus, I'm sure as they become more available, someone will probably tell us if not already

From what Speedie has been saying, the Blue Diamonds range from almost black, dark blue, royal blue, and dark chocolate. Gives great opportunity to take the line where you want to.
