A lot of my yellows have this stripe.Have not found that it only comes with age as some young shrimps carry the trait.have been selecting the strongest stripes and breeding them for some time and its only getting more consistant now after about 1 1/2 years.took my best 20 girls and my best boy and started a new tank and gbang has been moving the rest on.Anyone who has got some from him in the last few months will get this trait coming through in their shrimp.

would love to see pics of this blue body yellow rilli please. also as far as i know there is no true yellow rilli that has been developed. there are plenty of yellow culls that have a small patch on head or tail but they are just culls and not rilli. cant wait for the pics :)

Got a blue boy rilli from gbang and crossed it with standard yellow girls.Have about 5 boys that have selected that are fully clear and about 7 girls that are starting to break up in colour.Not to god with pics or posting as computer dumb.Will see if gbang can organise next time he is over.Not happy with them yet its work in progress.Have been looking for yellow rilli myself but have not yet seen one.Im realy want to create a solid yellow rilli and a bright lime green cherry.This is my main focus for the moment.

      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

      Shame there aren't more active locals. I don't have one Simon. I've thought to buy one multiple times. A couple of reasons why I didn't: 1. CRS survived last summer. Tank got to 27-28 degrees some days when we weren't home and I never had any deaths. Not saying it won't happen in the future, but they appear to be hardier than I first thought. 2. My other half isn't keen on another canister filter to run a chiller, fearing leaks. Don't ask lol. I would've bought another Eheim 2213. I have one on my 30C and its perfect. On another note, I just bought a CO2Art Pro-SE regulator. Planning on running CO2 on the 30C. Still need to get a gas cylinder. I have limited cabinet space so I have to work out what will fit as I want the biggest cylinder I can get. I also need to figure out if I run an inline reactor or diffuser in the tank. Any suggestions? I believe inline is the most efficient, but I don't know of any drawbacks. Lizzy

      Great news and hopefully you SHOULD be ok as you have at least got the tank/water sorted before getting the shrimps! There are a lot of jaw dropping aquascapes out there on youtube but as  you have said it is so much more interesting to see movement/life in the tanks? Even in small quantities, it just adds so much more? The shrimps may well moult due to the changes in the water so don't panic if you see a 'Ghost' or 2! Were the shrimps big enough that you can tell whether they are male or female?  Also they may hide more than you expect, until they are 'comfortable' with their new home. Simon

      When I used TAP water for my Betta the JBL soil I used (may not be available where you are though) exhausted its PH buffering in about 3 months, if that is any help - didn't take long! Incidentally, has anyone ever tried exhausting a soil substrate buffering by adding PH plus, before adding any occupants, I am assuming that will speed up the process. I may get some and give it a go as an experiment? next time I do an order????? Simon
