So far, it seems as if I'm one of the only ones who is trying to continue to breed for that look. I think it really could look beautiful!
That is a cool look indeed. At one point I was going for that, but just gave up all together when I realized how random they are in terms of offsprings. Hopefully I'll just wait 1-2 years down the line and someone will have ones that looks identicle to B for sale

I love this thread, in your opinion what are the absolute best water parameters for rilli? I am looking for ph, temp, gh, kh and TDS. Also since I am guessing the ph is going to be about 7.0 what is the best substrate to use.

Same params as for cherries applies. For substrate, a dark innert substrate will give you best results as they try to blend in.

Thank you. So it's safe to assume that a gh-6, kh-6, ph 7.4 temp 75 should be ok, I have them breeding well on CRS tanks, but I am planning a partitioned 40b just for rili guys

I call them boxer shrimp (because they look bruised LOL), but still waiting for some juvies to grow large enough to breed. Here's a pic I took earlier this year of one while it was still a juvie:



It would be considered a rili of sorts, but obviously doesn't fall into that exact category.
You have the mordalphus avatar picture shrimp! Lol

How's everybody's rilis going? It's been a slow process for myself moving shrimp around. I think the substrates losing it juice also. I'm thinking of swapping out the substrates as I don't want to deal with buffering substrate anymore.

Which kinds are you using? Rili are like cherry shrimps, can strive just fine in inert substrate
