Do you know if blue eggs are normal for fire reds to have?
Most of them have yellow, white, and sometimes green eggs.
I've never seen it before so I thought I'd check. Thanks for your input!

Cherry shrimp can a multitude of colored eggs. Your shrimp looks more of a sakura grade rather than fire red btw.

dude...don't freak out about the color. as you can clearly see the mother is still hanging onto all of them and as long as those eggs are surviving, that's all that matters.

+1 Eggs are like eye color. Everybody's are different. The genes will still turn out your shrimp though. :)

Egg colours don't mean much for Neos, it's said to be more meanful for Caridina.

Ouu, I'm curious to know what meaning egg colour holds for Caridina since I have 2 berried CRS.

It more applies if you have Taiwan Bee's and hybrids and crs, the color of a hybrid eggs can determine if you are going to have Taiwan bees or more hybrids.
