rili is just a color mutation that popped up and was breed for. it was not a cross.

I 've kept red cherry and blue pearls together for a while now.Only one blue pearl left (due to a damselfly nymph that I found a while ago and is the main suspect in this case).
The second generation coming out from the red cherry ,is less red ,some are faded ,but some(who already bear eggs) have red heads and tails ,and purplish middle(or blue).

Will they all lose color along the years(not that I would mind ,I don't really judge a shrimp by its color ,I am more into plants and aquascaping)?

I believe you get wild looking neos if you cross cherry and yellow, this may also apply to pfr since pfr is in essence very nice cherries
