Glad to hear everyone's enjoying their Blue Diamonds.

Just wanted to reassure you folks that these shrimp will breed out the same color variation from dark brown to jet black. As long as you don't mix any other random "Neo" variation into their colony, they will keep breeding this same color variation for you.

Any idea what the percentage of browns and blacks per clutch is on average? Even their colors are awesome. It's taken some of us years to get browns that look half as good as these. So this is a huge added bonus.

Seeing these dark browns and blacks that come from Blue Diamonds makes me want to ditch my brown and black Neos and/or cross them with these to see what happens.

Can't answer for Nick, but it SEEMS like for females it is 2:1 black/brown:bluish

Males I can't tell yet. I got one jet-black male, one mottled black.
