Before I like blue rili with red head and tail. Now I like them without any reds. I already have too much shrimps with red. Need something different.

I wondered if these breeds true with no red marking at all.

Are you sure it is not a blue pearl? Blue Pearl is a difference species of blue Neocaridina than Blue Rili.

That looks like Aura blue more that blue rili. What are they trying to do with it, solid blue? Very pretty shrimp, but nothing like a "rili" IMO.

There are definitely people using the color variation inherent in the rili shrimp to create variants that lack the 'rili' pattern but take advantage of the colors.

At this point they are still being called 'rili' shrimp (since that is what they came from) but I agree that it will be confusing if people are able to stabilize solid color 'rili' shrimp and what they should name them.

Originally it was called blue fairy in Taiwan, then Europe started calling them Blue Jelly (not the cards), now it appears they are named Blue Velvet. All the names are really confusing if you don't keep up with it, and even more confusing is when each breeder/country calls them something different- but yeah. They all come from blue rili. As far as I know, there's no "standard" name for them yet.

My Blue Jelly/Velvet/Rili are berried LOL. I have 3 very nice females with yellow eggs!
I believe you can get the deeper blue color by just breeding the best colored blue rili you have without any red. Same as the other types of shrimps that have been developed, just cull the ones that don't show enough color and keep breeding, each generation should be deeper blue than the last.

I did this with my Snow white crystals and now have extreme whites each time!

Selective breeding at its best.

Probably a bunch of infertile offspring. Blue pearls are neo. palmata which red rili's are neo. heteropoda and from reports I've read of people crossing snowball/blue pearls with cherry/fire/rili is the offspring are infertile usually.
