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

      Yeah watch the bladder snails, they can take over a tank so quickly! They will only really be a problem if you have a very messy tank, though, if not then they will just be around, cleaning up. They breed out of control when there is lots of food for them.

      I check those babies, I can only see 2, it seem they are only CRS or red wind, which came from a pinto mixed with other shrimps. same for me, if shrimps don't do well, I will keep miniture puffers.

      You did well, they probably didn't have what you ordered exactly so made it up with what they had. You got a lot for your money there, wow! I have just ordered my LAST lot of taiwan bee shrimps today so should get those next week, 5 black, 10 blue, 10 red assorted mix! If this lot don't work out it will be dwarf spotted rasboras in that tank in future? Simon

      I have just received my order I was surprised what has come. I ordered a 10 cup jug with one filter and two filter, what I got was one piece 10 cup Jug and 2 pieces 8 cup, total of 3 jugs and 3 filters for GBP35.

      When your sons blue start breeding you may think again and take some of his and maybe the last 2 yellows you have will survive, so don't give up entirely at this point, just take a break for now! There are a few shrimp specialists in USA who do delivery so they should be safe, flip aquatics, the shrimp farm etc, so mull that over for a few weeks??? I have just spent £150 on shrimps today for my LAST try next week! I must be insane but at least I KNOW if it doesn't work this time then its fish instead? Simon
