Just got my carbon Rili tank up and running. Adding stock next weekend maybe.

I also was just "given" another tank when my Electric Blue Ram decided to kill his mate. He will go back in the community 46g and the 20g will house Red Rilis or Sakura / Fire Reds from my Cherry tank. I will then set up my 2 gallon Betta Vase for very selective breeding to get the best red Rili's by breeding them with PFR and then breeding those to my Carbon Rili's should be good.

That tank really tied the room together

Maybe wait a bit with the shrimp for nice biofilm build-up. It should be good in a couple of weeks (dust algae, etc.)

Looks great! I've often wondered carbons x RR = BBRR? Glad to see you are trying it!

My BBRR offspring just aren't cutting it as far as deep blue coloration goes. Now I'm using the tank for a 2nd tank of Mixed rilis to see if I can double my chances of any nice deep blue BBRR popping out.

That's a good idea. I think I'm going to put some Monte Carlo and Hydrocotyle Japan in there with DIY C02 for a few weeks and see how they do. Hopefully they get established enough to do fine on just the Metricide when I add shrimp

Update:
I selected the best color from the shrimp I have and set-up 3 pairs.
Box 1: BR(male) x BR(female)
Box 2: BR(male) x RR(female)
Box 3: BR(male) x grade AA cherry shrimp (female).
All the females are berried right now, the following are BR female molt (before transfering to the 1 gallon box) and AA cherry shrimp.

so my bbrr are retaining the red color, though the blueis not as vibrant as when they were young. I will try and get some updated pics. Seems like 4 or 5 of them out of the berry are that way, at nearly .5"

.5" is still on the larger juvie side. For BV in general, I think for my strains they get roughly about .75" or so full grown.

If they have the BV mutation, the reds will fade. If for some reason your BBRR are partial throwbacks to RR, you may have a good thing going. Only time will tell if they fade or not.

Thanks for keeping us updated, and please continue to do so! I love our little group.

I feel in love with these little guys after seeing a group being sold on aquabid. I would love to follow along, but I don't have enough tanks to try to produce any

Follow along from the comfort of your chair. Not everyone has tank space, so admiration fills desire sometimes. heh

My rilis from Soothing Shrimp arrived today and they are acclimating as we speak. :::waves::: Thanks for the shrimp! They look terrific! I can't wait to see them in the tank. Pics will be forthcoming.

Hopefully your BBRR will throw some nice dark ones. Good luck!

Oh, me too. You sent some really interesting ones. Some have nice dark heads & tails, some have some nice blue, some are mostly red with stripes on their backs, and one is almost a pale green. I'm sure I'll pick out more... they're having a great time exploring. I love them!

Do you have any plans on how to selectively breed them?
