My Cherry is berried!! Parents look like a Yellow Rili and a blue velvet


Recommended Posts

So it's that newbie back again!

My little baby banana has been growing fast! I guessed it was a female, and I guessed right, she had a moult and next thing I knew, she's berried!!

I'm so excited and wanted to chat about how I think mama is a yellow rili because looking at the chart I found on this site, posted by @McMerwe Farmsa while back, and looking closely at mama, she has that clear strip in the same spot as the yellow Rili, it looks just like her! And dad seems to be a blue velvet, I busted him doing the sexy dance recently.

Since I'm new and easily confused, can anyone help decipher what the babies could possibly look like?

p.s sorry for the terrible footage, of course the shrimp was in hiding after a moult and dropping her eggs.

She certainly looks like a lovely yellow rili, not seen one of those before, very pretty!

I'm also a little confused, are you saying she has moulted and dropped the eggs after these photos? I hope not! If the eggs have been dropped then there won't be any babies unless you intervene, but even then, depending on whether the eggs were fertilized etc???? The babies hatch from the mother shrimps underside.

As regards any offspring from different coloured parents, they could be anything so it is best to wait and see, which also adds to the excitement/mystery/build-up of the whole event?

Thanks! I got them locally, only knew my shrimp as Cherry/ Neocardina's and it's interesting to learn about the nuances in the breed and colouring.

Sorry! I mean she hides drops the eggs to her 'belly' for incubation after the sexy dance, at least that's what I read.


I'm so excited for the babies. I had 2 lots of babies from a Red and then a yellow, in Sep/Oct and I'm still not sure how many babies made it because I've seen as many as 10+ at once, and recently only 2-3 at once.. I'm hoping I didn't miss a bunch dying or something, but who knows. I'm definitely excited to have more shrimp!!

And the blue guy is dancing again, I just went to say goodnight to them, hehe.
