Rili and Blue rili and low grade blue rili, all come from rili. All rili come from pfr. The thing that makes some pfr sooo dark and shiny is the blue body pigment. It still comes through in rilis.

just one of the color morphs they have i have some all blue ones and all i started with were red rili. you can eather pull the blue ones and just keep the red or just keep them all together. i keep mine all together some times i end up with more blue some times more red.
