I just saw it!!! A baby CRS with rili patterning! It had a red tail and head, and I'm sure it was a CRS! There are no other berried shrimp in this tank, and my female CRS just hatched a batch of eggs. This is pretty awesome, isn't it!? What wonders those low grade CRS from my lfs can do!

but unfortunately, I couldn't any pic of it.:(

Anyone else had this?

i think the white doesn't come in till later. i have a few that were red and clear spotted but within a few days their white filled in. I'm on my first batch of babies right now too, so I've seen some that looked like that and filled in with a few days. Seems within a week you can clearly tell what grade/pattern they are going to be roughly. The only thing interesting that I've noticed is that i have 1 that is completely clear that was just born a few days ago. Going by the ones i've seen, the red shows up after a day or so, and the white a week later and stays clear in the meantime. That would mean the clear one is going to be mostly white, but I don't know, I'm in your boat, first batch of babies and I'm just happy to see them too whatever grade they are. lol.

This is actually my 4th batch, and no babies, even smaller than this one look like it. They all had a second white band, but this one doesn't. This batch of eggs was hatched a days ago, and the babies do have colors.

Ah, nice then. Maybe a mutant. Thats how we got all the colors and patterns nowadays, mutants! I'm interested in what my clear one turns out to be, since it has no color at all.

I feel the same way about the one that is clear. I see it for a few days, then don't, then do and keep hoping it makes it. Also saw one a few mins ago that looked almost entirely red with a tiny white stripe on it, so interesting to see what this batch of babies turns into. Like I said, I've never had babies yet, this is my first batch so I'm obsessed with a magnifying glass looking for them. lol.
