I have one with a small saddle- I have to pull them, was waiting to see if they really retained color worth breeding them for first.

anyone interested that has more time/effort to spend than I do- hit me up, I can send you some of the juvies pictured for base cost. I wish I had enough time to do this seriously, but managing 100+ tanks gets draining- I have been pulling, but it is not something that can get primary focus. I think I have some great starter stock, that I will let go for base rili pricing should you mention this breeding project. PLEASE EMAIL ME

Oh I hope someone can take Rachel up on her very generous offer! She had some awesome rilis pictured!

Thanks for posting, Rachel!

Shrimp are a learning curve, but definitely worth the learning.

Update:
BR(M) X BR(F) = shrimplets all red with few starting to show some blue.
BR(M) X RR(F) = all shrimplets are red at this moment.
BR(M) X gradeAA cherry shrimp (F) = all shrimplets are red but darker than the above.
This is not the final color that they will get, just to give you an idea how they look like right now.
I set up another box for RR(M) X BR(F), I will keep you updated on that one too.
