Looks amazing. We have similar here in SA called blue dream shrimp.

Just a quick update, still getting alot of mixed results of the chocs mainly blues, blacks, and browns (still no reds, but is probably only a matter of time). I do however have a hypothesis that i plan to test, that i hope will result in something a bit more stable. At this stage i only have about two shrimp that match my criteria, so hopefully i will get a few more soon, and then start selective breeding from there. I plan to keep you all informed as i progress, hopefully my hypothesis pans out.

It would be interesting to know if the chocolate shrimp throw more red or blue/ black offspring due to their own lines of development or if it is more down to water parameters and food supplied. Since the chocolate cherries I have often throw a couple of dark red babies (red from a very early age), usually a couple of yellowish but mostly seem to produce blue blacks and still sometimes throw the odd clear wild type which I have found can change colour as they develop from anything from remaining clear to faint yellow, faint blue even faint green.

Mine still throw more Blue -I've separated some chocolates out and although I get an odd red  I mostly get blue and chocolates.
