Yeah...it does. Speedie did say that colors ranged from blue to really dark blue to black and even dark brown. So I'll let it ride a bit and see what happens. Maybe if she gets knocked up she'll throw more blues. If so, I'll start culling the browns and then I'll culls blues from the cull tank as they appear and put them back in the blue tank...lol

So in other words.... 9 dollar chocolates... and just 1 actual blue diamond.

No...one chocolate, the rest are blue or very dark blue. I just grabbed a few shots as posted above. The last two are the same shrimp. But speedie says they breed true, so if that is indeed the case, even the chocolate should throw blue babies.

That's awfully negative, dude.

FYI: I got my 6 Blue Diamonds from Speedie today, and every one is as blue as can be. Just like they were advertised. I'll take pictures soon.

Nahhh, once they have the curved belly they tend to hold it regardless of being berried or not as it expands for the next clutch. Just my opinion though

Yeah, I held my tongue but really...if you don't like the price or the shrimp, don't by them. I'm perfectly happy with them except the few I lost. Even the chocolate...it will be worth it if she throws blues and even if not, she'll be a good chocolate breeder.

No, you're right, the color pattern is slightly different too.

Mine came in as well. I'm wondering if the strain is a high quality chocolate with a blue tissue- much like PFR.
