Black cherry shrimp


Been working on this shrimp for awhile. I lost 90% of my black cherry awhile back ago. Luckily I saved one female from dying and I had a few male to go with her. Thought I share a pic or so. Baby has a nice blue when it comes out and eventually turn black.

cool pics.. never heard of black cherry shrimp before. So they are neocardina's but with a black pigment instead of the regular red for cherry's?

Mine are a mutation from my cherries, I have them in a planted tank with lots of tetras and runny nose tetras... Why I mentioned the fish? Well, the red cherries really pop nicely with the black soil and background and well are harrased by the fish to the point that they are disappearing from this tank, on the other hand the purple/black are just ok with them I think is hard for the fish to see them, they are multiplying. Is there a way that this mutation is a way of survival? They are adapting to the environment around (changing color)? This Is something that I have in my mind for a while.

I have to wait and see how many baby she will produce. You live around my area kinection. I'll keep u in mind. I never tried it with fire red and I don't think I will. Maybe I'll try it with some carbon rili, if I ever have the money to get some. Lol
