BBRR= Blue Body Red Rili

The middle blue tissue can be light to dark blue. The best example would be a nice dark blue middle with a bright red head/tail.

What a beautiful strain to introduce to the neo world! I'll be one of the first in line.

(Let's hope it doesn't wind up a yellow velvet!)
I didn't expect the yellow to show up, I will set up a small box for them and see what will happen.
It seems like there is thousands of possibilities when working with Rili shrimp, some have clear body and red tail, others have red carapace and clear body, or both red tail and carapace...

The yellow is amazing!

As for mine, it looks like I have 10 left of the original 22. :P I haven't found any bodies of those missing, so the others must have taken care of them. Amazing how the hardiest seem to be those with the least color. LOL I've got one that's mostly red with a tiny light spot, one almost all light, one all light except for a red dot on the head and tail, the rest fall somewhere in between. I've minimized the decor. No berries, no saddles. We're waiting for spring, apparently. :::drumming fingers on the desk:::

Good updates everyone! That yellow shrimp is nice. A yellow bodied red rilli would be one cool looking shrimp

My best ones never want to pose (actually my camera just doesn't take good macros), but quite a few of the offspring I have from Soothing's stock are looking very nice, at least to me. This one is less painted than others in the tank and has decent blue body - but it is still quite young so the red may color up in time.




Here is one of my mature mamas with better paint:

I haven't been having a ton of luck with my group of hopefuls. There's one decent BR male, that's possibly BR/BV, a very lovely blue female that is again, possible BR/BV. I also have two PFR females with very prominent racing stripes that are currently berried, and one RR with at least FR quality red, and a faint blue tint to the midsection. All the girls have been berried multiple times by this male, but I haven't noticed any babies. I'm hoping a change of tank will finally give me some results. The group was in a 5 with least killies, but I guess I should've known better.

Also, racing stripes. Are they desirable or not? I tend to like them, but I know not everyone does.

The racing stripes are just personal preference, I don't mind to have them on my shrimp either.
So I separated all the juveniles from the parents and put them in the center of the 40 gallon, I snapped few pictures of the odd ones.

Wow this is a cool thread! Love that you guys are working on these projects to create these beautiful shrimps. I only have RCS and a couple light colored blue shrimp.. Not sure what the name is. I have done projects with CRS and CBS in the past so maybe I will give it a go.
