Rilis and Blue Velvet

Recommended Posts

ineke

Time to cull again . I have a couple of tanks of Rilis to cull and just thought I would show how they are getting on. I can see a new depth of Red now and more clear mid sections. I am also getting Blue Velvets from some of these girls and I am working on improving their colour too. DSC_0047_zps8db7d1f8.jpg

Rilis are a cherry or Neocaridinia and will interbreed with any other colour cherry so you should not keep more than 1 colour in your tank unless you are trying to improve a particular trait.

Thank you and you would be welcome to have some for your collection just remember they will interbreed with the others. I have a Aqua One 980 with all different colours in there and I get some very pretty shrimp but once in there I don't know who breeds with what so the babies can never be put into a pure line tank. They are just my culls so I don't mind and it looks great to have a rainbow community tank.
Nice' date=' looking good Ineke[/quote']Thank you they are slowly getting there now.

Well about 100 little culls now nicely settled in the community tank. Now to do the second and third culls to decide what to keep for breeding and what to keep for sharing. Most of them are spoken for as I'm doing an exchange with Eshrimp , that's why I needed to make sure I keep plenty of nice breeders to share with him. :)

Will still have some nice ones left over though

Thanks Squiggs .

They are constantly berried and I do enjoy seeing the improvement in them but I wish some of my others would do as well.

I shouldn't complain the Blue Velvets and Chocolates are all breeding well too, even the crystals are slowly increasing in numbers so its all good

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
