Which kinds are you using? Rili are like cherry shrimps, can strive just fine in inert substrate

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.

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.
12-30-2012 06:36 PM
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.

fplata 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.

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!
That is a cool look indeed. At one point I was going for that, but just gave up all together when I realized how random they are in terms of offsprings. Hopefully I'll just wait 1-2 years down the line and someone will have ones that looks identicle to B for sale

Well said, IMO I think this should be the definition of "rili". Solid colors on each end separated by clear part in the middle.

So tomorrow is the last day of the year, show what you got guys! For some reason I'm really interested on the "A" grade of rili shrimps. Either true blue rili or carbon rili would be awesome. Lets see what 2013 will bring us!

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
