I know it's not the best photo but it is quick. So the head is mostly cherry red and the body is blue. I actually like the colouration. I was just wondering if it is a normal color morph

Now my next question. Should I cull it to keep. My pure blues going or don't worry about it.

What variety are you trying to breed? Blue or Red Rillis?

If you want your breeding program as pure as possible, then cull it.

If you have another tank, start a Blue Red rilli program :happydance:

I'm hoping for blues. So I might just throw that one in with my red cherries

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.

      Agree on what jayc said, it's best to get a branded one for reliablitity, but even branded one do have a differences in temperature, +- .5 to 1 degree celcius which is normal.

      Most aquarium heaters have a built in thermostat, that will heat when the temp drops 1degree below the set temp and stop heating when the temps hit 1 degree above the set temp. So get one from Eheim, Fluval, Aqua One, Aquael, Hydor, to name a few brands. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Eheim_Jager_Heater_25w_p/jg3611.htm or  https://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Submersible-Glass-Aquarium-Heater/dp/B0027VMPXA/ref=lp_19171761011_1_23?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1568762295&sr=1-23  Depending on where you are from.   A temperature controller like the one kms posted is good as a backup protection for the built in thermostat in cheap aquarium heaters. And it can be used on heaters that do not have built in thermostats. Just make sure you buy one that is a suitable size for your tank. A 25W or 50W will be enough.
