Unusual colour combo

I recently cam across this suspected carbon rili of sorts. I couldn't find much like it when I looked. Is this just a simple throw back? Or something less common? I kind of like the half black "tuxedo" look.

WoW, She is super cool.

What colour is that? Yellow?

It's not a throw back, but if you don't want the rest of your carbon rilli population to look like that, she should be separated.

That looks great! Would be interesting to see you breed it with another carbon rili, and try to line breed that 'tuxedo' look.

She is heavily berried, and part of the aftermath after removing all her desirable cousins from the tank. I took jayc's advice by removing her and now on her own in a tank created using water from her old home and thought Crabby's idea was what came to my mind. So I plan to raise her progeny separately and breed brother with sister with preference to any female that has any resemblance in hope to get a line of "tuxedos" going. If someone has any idea of how to regenerate another one I will endeavour to do so, but seeing that I don't really know her ancestry - she just popped up out of some blues (diamond? - I don't know about grading much)

Not sure on colour - I'll take another pic (without elodea) after she'e dropped the eggs.

Only thing to be careful of is that at some point you'll need to breed back to a totally different line. I'm talking like buy a carbon rili shrimp from a seller you've never heard of. Otherwise with all that inbreeding, your cool tuxedo line will become a weak unhealthy tuxedo line.

Super excited to see what you're gonna get!

      How hot has it been the week before they were delivered?

      I'll try quarantining them starting tomorrow morning and try to keep an eye out if there is any development on their condition.

      I wouldn't want to commit using those photos, and I don't know what a healthy shrimp of that type looks like to be honest. I would expect some discolouration from shipping etc, but that same thing could also have made them sick as you say. When I looked up pictures on google all the shrimps were a cloudy light brown so they are naturally cloudy and maybe just lost some colour in transit, see if anything changes in a day or two? Can you remove them and keep them separate for maybe a week, even in a bucket etc, using tank water as they have acclimated to that already! Of course catching and moving them again will stress them even more............ Simon

      Hello everyone, i got 5 C. typus at 7:00 p.m. (UTC+8). They were stuck for a day or so from shipping before i received them and i got worried some of them would've died. In some kind of miracle 4 of them survived. When i got them acclimated to my tanks i took some time to observe them and i noticed some of them had this pale white look on their bodies and immediately got worried because i know i could endanger my other shrimp. Sorry for low res pics i'll try to get more shots tomorrow Here are two pictures of one of them:
