i just found something amazing in one of my rack tanks that i just had to share with you guys.
The story starts a while back, someone around the beginning of summer(or end of spring) when i was trying to stock my shrimp tanks, i had gotten some wild type neocaridina from one of our members, i acclimated them, and completely forgot about them.
Close to 6 months later, and after 4 months of green water, the water cleared up and i saw something amazing. A shrimp with dark blue specks on its lower half. now that i discovered the shrimp, i looked a little bit more and found some more shrimp like her, so now im left with a couple choices, i could:
A) try to specific breed the holy bejesus out of them, and and try to get some fire blues or stone blues (whatever the dark blue neocaridinas are called)
B) let my colony do its thing
C) possibly sell them to another member for specific breeding
i snapped some pictures, but they didnt come out too clear, so im gonna wait until its dark, and go try again.
i uploaded the clearest picture i have for right now, any suggestions/comments/ideas would be great as i am in a deadlock and cannot decide what to do with the colony.
