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?

      I don't boil the driftwood when I put it in the tanks as JayC says, the tannins are good for the shrimps and it has never made the water so brown it becomes a problem, only slightly brown! I guess though that it may be a safe/good precaution to boil it anyway! Some countries are very strict about importing shrimps, from what I hear on here I think it is illegal in Australia to import shrimps/crabs etc so that is why people needed to know where you are based. Being based in UK I don't really know much about buying shrimps in the US so hopefully someone will come through with this. There are lots of youtube videos made by Flip Aquatics (I think they are Ohio based???) which is based in the US though!   Simon

      Still holding around 25.1-25.7 degree Celsius, so it seems good. I still want to add some micro crabs, I'll see if.I can get some in taiwan  they should be able to sort out any necessary paper work.

      That was quick. I see you have sourced some driftwood. Don't be too worried about removing the tannins. Its actually good for the shrimps.

      On the 4th rinse/boil of the new drift wood, water is looking much less brown. Rock coming out tonight.

      Sorry, I assumed mentioning that I plan to order online made this answer fairly universal. I’m in the US. My bad. I assume that I still need to be at least a bit careful with where I source driftwood. Boiling and removing tannins is obvious, but trying to avoid any further issues when I replace this rock.
