Selective breeding with rili

Just wanted to share some rili that i have been selective breeding for a couple years now. I first got the red rili from guppies on planted tank in 2011. They first starting throw a blue tint to them a few months later. Now this is how they look like. I am trying to breed them so they all look like this. Its probably going to take a few more generations to have them produce the babies to all look like this.

Just found some more nice shrimps to add to this selective breeding project. I hope they breed true, i am already happy with how these shrimps look. I just want the whole tank to look like this. Looks like a poormans CRS.
