im not quite sure what they are but they are pretty.
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to look at them closer.Ask your LFS if they order from SunPet. They have been selling "Navy Blue Shrimp" recently and they don't even have the slightest clue what they really are. Based on the color alone, I would guess blue diamond (which don't breed true), or a darker blue velvet (which should breed true).
After looking at them for a bit, I'd have to agree with your assessment wicca, though either of those would have been nice for the price I got them for. :red_mouththey are not blue diamond. blue diamond are solid not see though. and blue velvet do not have stripes like this.
Thanks for the suggestion shrimpo. I had looked at these earlier but had written them off as almost all of the ones I had seen were a single-shade blue without much variation except a little more darkness lower in the body and back of the head.How big are they? try to google blue Caridina babaulti and see if they look the same.
Thanks!They look cool at least, how much did you pay per shrimp?
I would be more tempted to agree if the ones I picked up were as thoroughly colored as those pictures. The possible reasons behind their blue-ness (diet/dye/etc) would also lead me to believe it would be more solid.
Aquarium Center in Clementon, my goto place if I need anything besides the basics. Unfortunately, they don't carry that many shrimp, can sell out quick and have a wide range of grade from week to week. Some weeks cherries are almost completely clear, next week they may be high grade sakuras, etc. (which can be nice, since they don't change the price when they're higher grade).Where in NJ did you get these from?
