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.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.

      I would imagine that the crabs will eat dead shrimps, even shrimps eat dead other shrimps, as they are both scavengers. Not sure that they would attack a live shrimp but it is probably best t keep a close eye on what happens before getting any more of either shrimps or crabs for that tank! Simon

      I think the live shrimp will be fine.  The micro-crabs are delicate creatures taking advantage of a rotting corpse. I'm sure the crabs will enjoy the protein.  Ordinarily I avoid feeding dead livestock to other livestock to prevent transmission of disease or unknown parasites although I will say as a shrimpkeeper the temptation is strong. 😄

      Yesterday I put a 3 new shrimps in the tank, and one dead shrimp that was DOA in the bag, nothing happened to the 3 shrimps, but the dead shrimp was swarmed by 3 crabs as food, would you presumed the live shrimps might get attacked soon or later.
