Bloody Mary ID?

Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet


So I had a family of BM that had offspring and theyve grown up. However, as they don't breed true, I'm at the stage of moving the rejects to another tank.


This female and 2 other females have a very deep clearish red to them which looks awesome. However, the rostrum seems a bit longer than the other BMs that I have.


Can anyone more familiar with these guys take a loot at the pics and provide an ID?


Thanks,

High Grade RCS or Bloody Mary Neos? Breed more true? Better looking? - Genetics and Selective Breeding - The Shrimp Spot

These are some of the discussions and it seems that the whole csky marketing thing is pretty well known. Also the physical traits of the BM are very evident in my shrimp above. Clearish shell with red flesh. Shrimpspot considered the above shrimp as a BM. And the rostrum of this guy is pretty long in comparison to the short rostrum BM that I also have.

Out of my first batch of offspring, with probably 10-15 surviving to an IDable age, 2 were rili patterned with BM traits, and about 1 or 2 were not BM at all. It's a pretty high % but I did lose a lot of shrimplets due to some messing around with tanks. I am interested in what this batch will get me. None berried yet but all the females are showing huge saddles.
