Rili shrimp
I have rili shrimp but some have hint of blue on their bodys...

and i notice some of the babies are like ( i notice a few babies in the tank are like this, not all of them)

can anyone tell me why? or how

Rili and Blue rili and low grade blue rili, all come from rili. All rili come from pfr. The thing that makes some pfr sooo dark and shiny is the blue body pigment. It still comes through in rilis.

just one of the color morphs they have i have some all blue ones and all i started with were red rili. you can eather pull the blue ones and just keep the red or just keep them all together. i keep mine all together some times i end up with more blue some times more red.

Yes, they breed blue and red, clear and red, etc

i have ended up with mostly blues. i did leave part of my rili in another tank and had reds there so i mixed them in a new tank when i moved things around we shall see what i end up more with since the biggest majority is blues now
