|ren||How's everybody's rilis going? It's been a slow process for myself moving shrimp around. I think the substrates losing it juice also. I'm thinking of swapping out the substrates as I don't want to deal with buffering substrate anymore.|

|wicca27||mine stopped breeding for a while not quite sure why other than the ph was probably to low for them (housed with crs) i ended up with mostly all blues and lost my light blue female with dark blue makrings. ill get some ppics soon though|

|fplata||Thank you so much!|

|Soothing Shrimp||Should be fine.|

|fplata||Thank you. So it's safe to assume that a gh-6, kh-6, ph 7.4 temp 75 should be ok, I have them breeding well on CRS tanks, but I am planning a partitioned 40b just for rili guys|

|Soothing Shrimp||Same params as for cherries applies. For substrate, a dark innert substrate will give you best results as they try to blend in.|

I love this thread, in your opinion what are the absolute best water parameters for rilli? I am looking for ph, temp, gh, kh and TDS. Also since I am guessing the ph is going to be about 7.0 what is the best substrate to use.

I'd also be interested in knowing who is breeding for a dark blue midsection while retaining the red on head and tail. (photo B)
So far, it seems as if I'm one of the only ones who is trying to continue to breed for that look. I think it really could look beautiful!

I'm was working on my own line very similar to carbons before carbons came out. LOL
I call them boxer shrimp (because they look bruised LOL), but still waiting for some juvies to grow large enough to breed. Here's a pic I took earlier this year of one while it was still a juvie:
It would be considered a rili of sorts, but obviously doesn't fall into that exact category.

I'm willing to pay $10 a pop for a blue or carbon rili by January.
Edit: someone selling 10x blue carbon rili (like blue velvet x black carbon) on Aquabid for $220 minimum bid
