That is a lovely shrimp, who knows breeding it you might yet end up with a multi coloured cherry.

I'm beginning to suspect there is something radioactive in the WA water. That is ridiculous! Breed it with everything!

Best of luck and i look forward to hearing more about this little fellow and his potential harem.

Bird pooed on me the other day, thought that was meant to be lucky, all my shrimp are still red though (albeit getting better red though) :P

I bet the mate is rainbow, 12 inches long and has 2 heads. :P

I walked right into that.

Enough about you, back to that crazy shrimp!!!!

Do you have any blue body red rillis with just the red head and not with the red tail tip? You can start calling them rainbow half rillis!

OMG....Turned my Blue Velvet/Rilli tank lights on whilst slurping a ice cream cone my son made me, and saw this sitting in front of my tank...took a pic, and then it darted into the moss....... not quite as stunning, a little "dirty" on it's body, but a start nevertheless. Looks like a male too !

      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.
