Should I get blue velvet or red rili shrimp?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of getting blue dream but I have dark substrate and it appears that blue velvet are lighter so I would be able to see them way easier. I also like the red rili. Do the red rili have blue ish bodies? I’ve seen some that do and some that don’t. I would be getting them from either billyboiaquatics or soshrimp. Has anyone ordered these shrimp from these places?

Blue dreams aren't great on a dark substrate. Get some blue jellies or the red rilis I reckon. I have blue dreams on a black substrate and they don't look good unless on something other than the substrate. Just my opinion though.

What about blue velvet? Ik those are lighter. How are red rili? I like them but some can be too light sometimes. Can they look something like this?

That's a really high grade one. I think there are good quality ones in US, I'm not sure though. We don't have nice rili shrimp in Australia.

It's actually pretty ez to keep rili shrimp . It's just pretty rare in US . I'm not sure if it's possible to import living shrimp into US .

In Taiwan , red rili shrimp is like 100NT for 12 shrimp😆

I hate to say it ... just get two tanks and you can keep both colour variations.

We do have blue rili shrimp in Taiwan(P1)😆 (guess it's pretty rare in US?)Just remember don't put the different colour type together ,their baby will return to the original colour(P2)

In Chinese , it's called 返祖 , basically it's because if you put two shrimp with different colour gene together , their baby's gene will be very unstable ,eventually the baby shrimps will all return to their original colour (black)^_^

I'm amazed at the pricing given above (100 NT for 10 shrimp)! That's like $3.40, which is crazy! Would shrimp survive such a long haul (from Taiwan to the US), though?
