I may have been mistaken, I looked for yellows today, but all I could find were blues with yellow tints. I'm guessing all those will fade to pure blue instead of the blue-yellow mix, but it's still odd that there are some that started pure blue, some that were red and turned blue, and some that are the yellow-blue that will become blue.

The ones I got doesn't look like faded red, the male has clear shell and slightly yellow flesh.
Could you post some pictures of the ones you got?

Kehy Looking at some shrimplets in my fiance's tank (really a cull tank, LOL), and I noticed I had the standard RRs, BBRRs, BRs, and a couple yellows and yellow blues (yellow shell, blue flesh). Oh, and some clear-whites that look perfectly healthy. Looks like momma got busy, LOL. I actually thought I'd pretty much lost out on the blue shrimp, but looks like I've been thrown a bone.

I just can't decide which colors to use. Obviously the BBRRs are keepers, but what about the others? There are only 1-2 females that the babies could have come from, both RRs, and all except 1 male are RRs. All my shrimp are from RR/BR/BV mixes, so attempting to sort out genetics would

shrimpo Update:
The YBRR is berried again, she was paired with a Rili that has clear/bluish mid section as suggested by Soothing.
The F1 are all red at this moment with Rili patterns on most of them, as they grow a little more I will post another pictures, not sure if they are going to stay red.
Below are some pictures of F1, their father (yellowish) and the one that she got paired with.

shrimpo I got shrimplets today from the YBRR shrimp, it looks like they already showing the rili pattern but it is too early to tell.
This picture is showing one of them to give you an idea.

Soothing Shrimp Nope. Still working on it, but progress is slow. I did fire red x blue rili x rr crossings and have continually been selecting best BBRR x fire red.

Usually cherry shrimp follow mom's color genetics, but go ahead and try it and report back.

0live I'm hoping to start on my BBRR endeavor.. but Navigating this thread for what everyone has tried is difficult.

I think I remember Blue Velvet + Red Rilli being discussed.. but I don't know if gender matters for color phenotype. Any input? Has everyone just scrapped this?
