Does anyone else have dark brown cherry shrimp? I mean mine are nearly black with a light brown stripe down there back. I have about 6 of them in one of my tanks. I was considering separating them from my other shrimp and start breeding them so I have a nice super red strain and a nice dark brown strain.

Update: I now have a picture of one of the dark brown shrimp.

i had a "stray" in a 2.5g with dark flourite substrate, a piece of wood and spare vegetation.

found the critter when i took tank down and found that it was indeed of a very dark coloration. almost like it tried to blend in with the dark substrate and wood.

When you can put up a picture so we can see what you mean! Could be a new mutation.
