None yet. I picked up a nice dark blue rili out in LI today. Like, darker than a blue velvet.
Jk I found the green female she light green now!

Where in LI? I want some shrimp.

What do the moss ropes look like after having grown out some? They were plastic pieces with moss tied to them tat arched through your tanks.

I'm not sure but I assume that it's really grown out Notocyphus luscens. I retied notocyphus luscens recently so we'll see how that goes.

The reason they are curved because I leave some space on the bottom of the plastic to bury under the substrate to hold against the aquarium glass.

On another note

So I was one of the few that bought blue diamonds. They have great color that I was working towards with my rili stock but was beat to the punch by a long shot but here they are enjoy.

update 5/14

This week on Maury "Whose the Father?" J/K

Really though I threw in a blue rili into my blue diamond tank just to see what would happen. The lights turned on and I saw the blue lady berried. This is her 2 1/2 weeks ago full with berries.



Fast forwarding to today the looks healthy and happy roaming around the tank. What I did notice that was interesting were the egg colors. YES the eggs are mostly a dark blue. About 80% is a dark blue while the other 20% are that red color that we know means its time to hatch.

Hehe we're in business now!

some of my rili would start out a lime green and after a couple weeks would be a red/orange color and stay that way for a couple weeks so maybe that is what is happening to the red ones they just changed color. do keep us updated on if they hatch already or if they take longer and what comes out of the cross.

Update 6/4

I was meaning to update sooner but you know how that goes. As you all know my rili mother released her half DB kids around the tank. I took a picture 2 weeks after they were born and they all were too small to tell what color they were. Fast forward to today they seem like they have a brown head and tail and clear to tiger striped midsection. Another interesting thing is that some of the 18 plus runts have light to dark blue underlay.

I wanted to have more half breeds to play around with so I took full saddled mothers and put them into each of my DB tanks. So far I have one rili mother berried in each tank now for the month long wait. Enjoy!!

Ask and you shall receive.

So you need a Poland spring bottle, airline, an airstone suction cups, and a spare net. I took a Poland spring bottle and cut the bottom. Next, I made a hole in the cap so the tubing can fit through snug and fit the airline with air stone inside the bottle. After that, make small holes around the neck of the bottle so that water from the tank can move in and out. With the suction cups, make a small holes so you can fit the nubs inside the bottle to hold it in place. Finally, connect the airline to the pump run it on full to medium aeration and there you have it my baby hatching machine.

Yup the babies daddy are either jet black or a dark blue. We'll see within the next couple of weeks.
