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:

      As you say it may just be the light that makes them look a bit black, the ones I thought I saw were all on the sponges which are black. Simon

      I'm pretty sure all the different colours of neocaridina shrimp are easy to care for! The only problem with mixing colours is them cross breeding which will speed up the reverting to wild or brown shrimps if they do cross breed. I say speed up as in my oldest tank I got a group of red  cherries 5 years ago and never had any others and they are mainly brown (75%) now. I have a densely planted tank and have been very lazy so have not removed/culled any browns ones over the years so at this point it would be very difficult to correct this without emptying the tank and starting again!!! Best to keep on top of it as you go. I would start off with just the one colour and get some experience with those first and come back to other/mixing colours a bit further down the line? With just 5 shrimps to start with you shouldn't need any food so see how it goes with them for a while before buying any. There will be more than enough biofilm in the tank for so few shrimps. If it all takes off and goes well then the 'complete' I would think should be sufficient when you have lots of shrimps though you should feed less than they recommend always? You can also use blanched ORGANIC peas and spinach and other plants etc which you can find out about on here? If you are going to use the CO2 then you will certainly have more luck with the lesser the CO2 I'm sure! If you can leave the CO2 off for a few weeks, that is what I would do, as you will then know whether the plants even need it AND it will be one less thing to eliminate IF you do start having problems with the shrimps? Good luck with getting the shrimps this weekend, drip acclimate for a couple of hours and ending up with at least 3 times as much tank water to the quantity of water they came in when you start off (or more). Don't panic if you lose the odd one in the first few weeks either, I always expect that to happen as they have been through a lot, breeder to shop and then shop to your tank etc and are more fragile than fish.

      Thank goodness. You don't want to mix PRL with CBS. It's so hard getting Pure Red Lines as it is.  Keep up the good work.

      Thanks again. Going to do a big water change tomorrow then see how I go. Shrimp wise, there is a maidenhead aquatics near me that sell neocardina, so I was just going to use them to get 5 or so, to quite litterally test the waters. I've ordered a drip kit to help with acclimitising, I'm also going to turn the CO2 off, then slowly turn it on after a day or 2, to see how they do. When it comes to neocardina, is their care the same across the board, or are certain "colours" harder to care for? Would love a mix or reds and blues. Also food wise, what do you recommend? I was just looking at Shrimp King Complete.

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank
