Do rilis like "yucky" when still babies?


*Do rilis look ugly when still babies?*
I just got 10 Red rilis from Ocean Blue for 1$ each today and I got
some clear babies with green heads/ blue tint body with red head. They didn't look so good, do they look better as they get older? I wish I could of picked the ones I wanted.

Usually they start out red and then start to lose the color in the midsection by the time they are getting to be juvie.

If they are clear, they are likely to stay clear. he blue tint sounds more like blue rilis. But really, you need to wait and see how they turn out!!

If you want..

Take pictures now.

Then wait a few days, take some more pictures.

Hopefully you'll see a difference.

Yea it was probably because the car ride was bumpy and they got stressed out. I'm starting to see sick colors on them. I've noticed the rilis have a red spine unlike the fire reds.

Your babies are clear/blue tinted with orange heads? NICE!
Thanks for the pics. Mines look "sorta" like that.

Yea, the one in the 3rd pic looks exactly like mines. Is that substrate aquasoil? Thanks for the pics man. I'm glad I didn't get ripped off, but then again... after I came home... I lost 70$. Pretty pissed. I think I either gave the guy an extra 60$ or I dropped it. That's probably why my parents don't like me keeping my money.... good thing vietnamese new year is in a week! SHRIMP SHOPPING SPREE HERE I COME!!! LOL. And that's probably why you don't drink Dr.Pepper. XD

no i use fluval shrimp stratum. its worked well for me and ive had it a year. all my blue rili came from the red and clear rili and i ended up with 95% blues a year later. the purple rili didnt end up breeding well so i dont have many show up of those. but they are pretty when they do show up. rili can be fun to play with since i get alot of diff colors from mine but they all give the diff colors so just cause you gor blue/green ones does not mean they wont give you red babies. i even ended up with a pretty dark cherry from one of the blues i had and all its babies ended up the red and clear rili

Man. I'm confused now... if you got your CRS to breed for a year with FSS. Do you think I should go with FSS again or look for ADA? :O

i think alot of it depends on the tap water to start off with. i plan on trying fss when i get more. and if you use ro water then it will last alot longer any way. people have had mixed results with fss i have had great luck with it so i plan on sticking with it
