Default Crimson's Carbon Rili

Not sure if this has been brought up, but it looks like Crimson has a new morph of Rilis they dubbed "Carbon Rili". These shrimps are black. They look pretty interesting enough. Wondering if they breed true.

Anyone have information or hear more about these guys?

Picture attached.



Discuss.

I do agree with you Liam. These guys don't look as solid as Red Rilis.

I just saw these while scanning around on AB for possible Taiwan Bee buys. I wasn't aware people had these already. Pretty awesome stuff!

Don't know if they breed true yet. My P1 carbon rilis threw F1s, but too early to tell yet. If the F1s breed true, then I'll be willing to accept them as a pure strain.

Some have blue midsections, some clear. markings are random.

Sometimes breeders in their rush to sell offspring, sell a line that may not be ready as a true strain yet.

Bane of the shrimp world now. It was about the hobby and the craft of breeding nice looking, true breeding shrimp that was around Japan and Taiwan. Then the Germans got in breeding, it spread to the rest of Europe and North America, and now everyone see's dollars signs, so any shrimp that looks different, isn't a mutation, it's a new strain and it's worth 10x what it should be, despite if they breed true or are even able to reproduce when you start cross mixing sub-species in. Some crosses are viable for 3-4-5 generations, then can't breed anymore.

There are lots of people with beautiful ti-bee's out there, that look like zebra's, pure white with black stripes, but they yet to be able to get them to stay fertile after so many generations or breed true (hint never be the first to buy white ti-bee tigers, lol).

I've been waiting for a while to see pictures of these from someone who ordered them, not pics from a seller. Haven't seen anyone with a tank full of these yet.

Most likely you won't see a full tank of these for quite a while from someone other than a breeder. At $15 a pop for something that is not known to be proven to the shrimp world, and for a neo...well, let's just say you really have to be into the neo and mutations hobby like me (or insane) to even take a chance. Otherwise you risk losing $$$ to something that may not even breed true.
