Sakura x yellow/greenish


This is an update of my post "cherry x yellow?" I got the tank reset and cycled for 2 weeks which the cycling time should be ok for neos. I got 5 sakura from 1 lfs, and when I went to another lfs, I looked for its yellow shrimps. And when I found it, there was also other colours. Here are the colours there was: yellow, greenish yellow, bluish, orange. Although the owner kept the yellows and rili together, I was sure that these colours are not the result of them breeding each other(so do not contain rili genes at all). So I tried to grab all of these colour. Now I have 5 sakura, 2 yellow, 1 green, 2 bluish, 2 orange and 1 peewee neo(not sure what its colour is,but I think it is a rili). I will be posting their pics soon. Hope this project goes well!

Some may end up colorful but the majority of them will likely end up looking like muddled, brown Wild-Type Neos.

I've done it... Yellow + Red = Brown. However, if you just leave them alone long enough, you will get some other colors. I saw a green one and a blue one in my tank at one time, and the longer you let the browns breed, the darker they get. At one point I had a few very nice very dark browns that would be considered Sakura grade. You can start selective breeding and end up with some nice chocolates or even one of the other color variations over time.

Sounds cool, always wanted to do some selective breeding. I think I am going to do this cross!

Sorry to go off topic but since you guys were speaking about chocolate shrimp, what's the difference between a "wild" type and a low grade chocolate? In my cherry tank, I've noticed a brown splachy shrimp and was wondering if I should consider it a wild type or a low grade chocolate?

hm I think many people are going to ask you to elaborate on "I got the tank reset and cycled for 2 weeks which the cycling time should be ok for neos."

Could be an explanation for your shrimpie deaths
