Please help me here, I don't want to sound like it's coming from the wrong place as I too have blue cherrys. I can see the froth over the carbons as they are spectacular but enlighten me as to the grades of blue... I have blue that appeared from brown that I bred months ago and thought not much about them. Recently I bought a pack of blues from a breeder that I simply released into my mix bag colony.

They cost me $30 each but I don't quite get the fuss... What is it with blue that we want to see?

Thanks :) :)

Really depends on the eye of the beholder. The only two current cherries that breed true are the light blue cherries from red rilli and now this from carbon rilli. While the carbon rilli breeds true in terms of colour, the variation of patterns is crazy. Many people including myself are trying to create a painted fire type blue from black and chocolate cherries and there's also the cobalt blue type cherry from carbon rilli. Personally I like all types of blue. That's just me. There isn't really a formal grading yet. But once we stabilize blues, we should have the Sakura type grading. But that's ages away. Hope that helps. Beware of breeding blues from red rilli and blues from chocolates. Because of the base colours being different.... There's a huge chance of uncertainty in colours later

Truly beautiful shrimp, I love the blues, probably the dark blues over the pale but they are all stunning.

I must have blue gene red cherry shrimp in my lot, since some of my females go a pale blue over night and then colour back up to red as soon as the lights come back on, very weird.

+1 completely agree, we are definitely a fair way away from secured lines & a serious grading system. :encouragement:

      I have 10 chilli rasbora and a killi in a 30(ish) litre tank and they are doing fine and seems about right in size! I hope to get some shrimp for trial at some stage to also go in there but thats for a later date, when things get back to a bit more normal. Simon

      A 600x300x180 tank is perfect for CPD or chilli rasboras.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon

      Evening Guys,    I had a shipment (small one) arrive today, but the sender has mixed my King Kongs and Black Pintos in the same bag. Is there an easy tell tale as to which is which? (rather small juvies) These are my first bee's and really wanted to keep things separate for now. Thanks in advance.
