I've yet to see a brown chocolate shrimp. I assume that's where they got their common name.

If you see speedie's website, they can be a variety of colors. I assume we have less pure blood lines when compared to speedie's. Hence the price we got them at. However, there is potential!

Cookymonster760's ad did say mixed grade. I was impressed with all of them, the colors solid. Beautiful shrimp!

Those of you that want chocolate neos, just get some different colors and mix them. In time, you'll get chocolates. I have some that are so dark you can't see them on the black substrate. I have that have orange eyes too. One of these days I may separate them out but who knows. I've been way too lazy with my shrimp. I tore down my yellow tank and mixed those with my "wild" tank and spent a few hours cleaning up and redoing my PFR tank trying to get it going again...my interest just goes in cycles it seems.

Terrible pic, but you can see her eyes. And no, that's no from the camera...they really are that orange.

It seems it's the PFS that makes them chocolates, isn't it? I mean, it's from the PFS gene that gives the chocolates the very solid coloration.

Or something like that...
