I may actually have a true bloody mary


Some of you guys may remember a thread i started a month or two ago to show off my best fire red cherry, although that shrimp i posted looked like a super nice painted fire red to me, some of you were convinced that it was a new variant of cherry called "bloody mary"

here is the picture i posted of my 'painted fire red'


well today i bought a red shrimp in a tank of shrimps labeled "red luminous shrimp" and i am fairy convinced that my new shrimp may be a TRUE bloody mary.

here's some pics of this awesome clear, red-fleshed, shrimp





this was the only one in the group that looked like this, the red were painted fire reds.

what do you guys think? is that what they call "bloody mary"?

I think you're right about it looking different. But I have no idea if it is a bloody Mary or not. Cut it open to find out jk jk

Either way both shrimp look amazing.

I always thought that a bloody mary is supposed to have solid red legs matching the color of the body. Your new shrimp doesn't seem to have that characteristic unless it's just the pic. It's still a very very very nice shrimp.

I hope you have a nice male to go with those babies?

Are you saying that in a tank of "red luminous shrimp", only 1 is that color?

You should supplement with BorneoWild "Crimson".....that will make your shrimp crazy red so I can't imagine what would happen if you added to these shrimp
