I bit the Bullet

Recommended Posts

So I finally bit the bullet and made a determined effort to sort out my black cherry shrimp. A while ago I removed all the chocolate (really deep dark brown) and yesterday I hunted blues,  and any remaining chocolates from the tank.

Amazingly I found heaps of Black backed with blue underside Cherry's which I don't plan on putting back with the blacks since they are not full bodied black and also some stunning deep royal blue cherry's. Even tiny shrimplet blues where emerging out of the recesses of the tank as I removed every possible hidey hole during my hunt for shrimp.

So here are a couple of shots of the quality of the blues I did remove.

The big female wasn't wanting to co-operate for a photo shoot.

Very nice mate, beautiful colour, the blues really catch the eye don’t they.

Wish everything was going smooth for my tank & shrimp.

I think the deep dark blue is my favourite shrimp colour after Crystal Red and Black. But since experience has taught me that crystal shrimp don't love me as much as I love them I stick to the Cherry's and Natives.

I'm sure your tank will settle down, mostly it just takes time and having to wait between too many drastic changes to find the happy medium.

Could well be the path I head down the way I’m going.

The Blues are stunning aren’t they, I also like the Bloody Mary but the Blue Dreams go BANG!
