This blue bolt is just fantastic
 
For a lower grade I'm quite impressed, I was expecting a lot less blue. Here is the male I got in today along with 8 cbs from Nick. Female coming in a week or so from now from different source. Can't wait to see the new blue bolts Speedie is bringing in, those are going to look divine.

I don't know why but that blue bolt makes me think of Captain America or Superman. he just looks like a superhero shrimp. Awesome by the way.

all you need is to tape a round shield to one of his legs :)

Great looking shrimp! thanks for sharing. Im sure they'll color up in the tank.

Different sources to promote gene diversity?

No just so happens supplier had one high grade female left so I took, and lucked out with this male. I guess I could think of it that way.

Nice blue bolts!
Do they breed true?

StrungOut 08-29-2012 01:39 AM

I've read 98% true in a search on planted tank, don't know how accurate that is.

Truly incredible color! When buying more, I'd go back to the same seller since he's proven his stock!
