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?

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
