Lovely shrimp, I had no luck with yellows and sadly it appears the few rili's I had have gone the same way.

Best of luck with your yellow rili project.

Great to see someone's selectively breeding them. I had a pair I tried to selective breed, without success, and the F2 were all rubbish...so I gave up :-( Keep up the great work :-)

These are gen 3 breeding about 50% rilli Have 30 odd girls and 10/12 boys to work with now just need to select separate and cull maybe 2 more gen should do it.

AS per blue project sorting has given me a 30+ strong colony of these.Hope the next gen is 80-90% rilli as this time it was 60-70%.

How does the Rilli gene work, i take it it would have to be a recessive mutation and that the solid yellow would dominate if cross breeding were to happen?

If that is the case could you cross in more solid yellow down the line and cross the F2 of the offspring back to rilli parent or rilli sibling to strenghten the yellow but keep the rill pattern?

Yes genetic floor have been breeding rilli to rilli to strengthen pattern and crossing back to solid yellow to get the yellow more solid.These are about 2 years of crossing back and forth and breeding around 90% true have 4or5 very nice girls now just hitting breeding age so fingers crossed not far from letting some of these get out for you guys

      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.
    • jayc
      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.
