Recommended Posts

Is anyone here keeping Blue rillis? I'm interested to see photos of what blue rillis are in Australia. If anyone has some please show a pic!

When you say Blue rili's are you referring to Blue velvet shrimp?

If so, I have some.

There's much confusion with blue Rillis. Many hobbyist is Aust consider this a blue rilli, which is variation from the red rilli. I have a small colony, and I'm still trying to fix its genetics, as its still producing red Rillis. This shrimp internationally is Valle a blue velvet.

Pic of a carbon rilli (not a great specimen, but nevertheless, it demonstrates the diff)

The blue rilli has a less intense blue colouration...

+1 to what BB said.

Here a couple of pics of mine. Mine occasionally throw out juveniles with a red spot on their heads, or a red outline on their tails. They are getting better now and I would say about 80% breed true. Still working on it though.

Although, I did go through a period of aggressive culling, where any imperfections were removed to live a life of glee with my fish.

They look great but seem to be more low grade rilli, some very pale blue? Has anyone got solid blue part with the rest of the body clear?

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
