Blue Rilli

Recommended Posts

Kinda on topic, but does anyone have the breeding history on the development of the original rili pattern? I've been spinning myself in circles as to how the colour segregation was achieved; I assume two colour morphs of heterapoda where involved and by chance genes for parts of the thorax and some pleomere came from one and genes for the telson and rear pleomere came from the other. Like I said assumption, does anyone have or know the real story? Dean? BB?

I'd suspect its a genetic mutation, and a geno cell representing clear bodies. The rili pattern occurred within th selective breeding of my SW/GB.

What a striking looking shrimp!

I really don't understand where you have the room for all your projects.

Do you have an underground secret fish-room where you conduct your experiments?

Thanks. Only recently added a breeding rack (4 tanks)...so have 12 tanks, but theoritically 24, as I mix my caridina & neocaridina, plus have great stock ....plus lots of luck.

Lol. It seems like every couple of days you release a new mutant to awe us with. I like your work ;)

No teasing bb lol. Maybe we could start a forum section for all the new shrimp created by the members of skf. Then everyone would know where the original strains came from in the future.

Cheers Mick

Is that a line you're looking to persue? If so let me know next time you come onto the shop. I have something for you :)

It didn't include a pic of the shrimp in the quote

just to be clear. the rilli pattern on snow whites is more common than you think! check it out on google. i've had quite a few normal cherry shrimps just grow up with transparent areas in their nody. and i know of many others who have experienced this as well. i guess it was just a case of line breeding later on for overseas breeders. i believe done wah has created a blue rilli with red only on the tail and called it a pheonix rilli?

      As you say it may just be the light that makes them look a bit black, the ones I thought I saw were all on the sponges which are black. Simon

      I'm pretty sure all the different colours of neocaridina shrimp are easy to care for! The only problem with mixing colours is them cross breeding which will speed up the reverting to wild or brown shrimps if they do cross breed. I say speed up as in my oldest tank I got a group of red  cherries 5 years ago and never had any others and they are mainly brown (75%) now. I have a densely planted tank and have been very lazy so have not removed/culled any browns ones over the years so at this point it would be very difficult to correct this without emptying the tank and starting again!!! Best to keep on top of it as you go. I would start off with just the one colour and get some experience with those first and come back to other/mixing colours a bit further down the line? With just 5 shrimps to start with you shouldn't need any food so see how it goes with them for a while before buying any. There will be more than enough biofilm in the tank for so few shrimps. If it all takes off and goes well then the 'complete' I would think should be sufficient when you have lots of shrimps though you should feed less than they recommend always? You can also use blanched ORGANIC peas and spinach and other plants etc which you can find out about on here? If you are going to use the CO2 then you will certainly have more luck with the lesser the CO2 I'm sure! If you can leave the CO2 off for a few weeks, that is what I would do, as you will then know whether the plants even need it AND it will be one less thing to eliminate IF you do start having problems with the shrimps? Good luck with getting the shrimps this weekend, drip acclimate for a couple of hours and ending up with at least 3 times as much tank water to the quantity of water they came in when you start off (or more). Don't panic if you lose the odd one in the first few weeks either, I always expect that to happen as they have been through a lot, breeder to shop and then shop to your tank etc and are more fragile than fish.

      Thank goodness. You don't want to mix PRL with CBS. It's so hard getting Pure Red Lines as it is.  Keep up the good work.

      Thanks again. Going to do a big water change tomorrow then see how I go. Shrimp wise, there is a maidenhead aquatics near me that sell neocardina, so I was just going to use them to get 5 or so, to quite litterally test the waters. I've ordered a drip kit to help with acclimitising, I'm also going to turn the CO2 off, then slowly turn it on after a day or 2, to see how they do. When it comes to neocardina, is their care the same across the board, or are certain "colours" harder to care for? Would love a mix or reds and blues. Also food wise, what do you recommend? I was just looking at Shrimp King Complete.

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank
