Since I have close to 50 of these carbons now (babies/juvies included), I can say that there seems to be some that have a deep concentration of blue for the markings, and some that look to have actual black.

I just think it's very strange to have this strain as a "strain." I mean, they are very cool looking- no doubt about that- it's just 5 or more strains could have possibly been made from these instead of just releasing it as just one catchall name like carbon rili.

Of course even chocolates have blondes, rust, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and occasionally black or blue.

OKay, the secret is out. Carbon Rilis really DO grow on trees!

So I'm answering my own question by posting this pic.

For me THIS is the lowest grade of carbon rili. Seems some carbons are producing these that look like nothing more than the standard all light blue "rili." ...a very EXPENSIVE all light blue rili.

It may have the carbon genes, but to me these are culls.

Default carbon shrimp- high/low grades?

Bryce, I'd pick B, but if you could produce A with a full colored body, no splotches, I'd prefer it over the true Rilli. Just my take.

Yeah. Wouldn't it have a blue hue though?

A solid, reliable true black neo shrimp would be wonderful.
