I just paid you. Please note that this order is going to my apartment instead of my work. I changed the address in PayPal but letting you know in case you had the address auto populate when you print your shipping label.

Thanks.

I don't think it will affect the clear parts of your rilis. It doesn't tint, dye, or otherwise change the color of anything. Crimson is a blend of spirulina (which is known to enhance color in just about anything), montmorrilonite clay(which has been shown to enhance the color and overall health of most things, especially shrimp), and various minerals.

It functions to enhance colors that already exist in the shrimp. That said, if it turns your TT's into red shrimp with black stripes, you'll be rich

PM me the address you want it to go to and I'll make sure it goes out to the right address. Thanks again

Essentially it magnifies the intensity of the colors?

That has been my experience with it. I've used it with CRS, Red Wines, Fire Reds, and OEBT's. None of those have shown any colors that weren't already there.

Unfortunately, Hedge_Fund just got my last bottle of it I'm probably 3 weeks from being resupplied. (I'm trying to speed that up, but shipping is either crazy expensive or takes forever)

Damn, I got lucky. I presume you have everything I ordered?

EDIT:
I just checked the first page of this thread. You seem to be sold out of most of the things I ordered....I wonder if I was the last one?

So what does white do? If they're both enhancers of color(crimson and white) what's the difference?

White uses a different combination of nutrients, focusing mostly on calcium. While it improves overall coloration, it's effect will certainly be more visible on the white parts of shrimp. It also helps thicken and strengthen shells, and promotes a sort of "glossy" appearance.

Pull the trigger, you'll be happy you did. So far every product has worked as advertised....I actually see a difference after I've been supplementing Shield and Stout over the last week. The shells are shiny and thick....my water also seems VERY VERY VERY clean all of the sudden. I think it's contributed to all the beneficial bacteria stuff from Shield.

I wasn't planning on it. Mosura and BW are made by the same company, so I chose the one I thought had the more marketable name lol. Most of the Mosura products have a BW equivalent.

Oh well that's interesting! I did not know that. I'm interested in BT-9 and Old Sea Mud.
