I'm (and spouse many other people to) a little confused about the trade names/grades of blue neos.

So,
 a blue jelly came from red/blue rili, 
blue velvet and blue diamond came from blue carbon rili and they are the both opposites of the variant.
And then came blue dream, blue topaz, blue fairy, blue pearl  etc.

Also about the yellowish/orangeish variants: yellow fire, sunkist, pumpkin etc.
I only know that what yellow neon is.

Thank you

This is why I dislike the breeder branding on the colours. Makes it difficult for newcomers to understand the genetic history. There is a chart here from Squiggles that may describe what you are chasing.

Thank you, but I reed all I can find and still have some unclarities.

 

I'm absolutely agreed. The commercial names is totally confusing and misleading and you hardly now what you can get. With such variable species we must stay close is possible to scientific correlations and lineages. Unfortunately we can observe the same situation with every selectively breedet species.

I know how old this thread is,  I  got here with a Google search for "blue shrimp  lose their color " which has happened to me at least a half dozen times- they literally molt into natural brown and gray. 

Anyone solve this mystery in the last few years?

Anyway on this topic, the general consensus of the general aquarist with other species bred for minute color variations is to label them with a batch number which acts almost like a sku... so for example on something like a cichlid or pleco you get the morph name followed by a number indicating the last few generations. Example  "green dragon pleco 242" which tells us the breeding stock on both sides and can be used to ID at least the morphs going back to the point where they split from another subtype/name.

      Hmmm went to the fish store to take a look at their livestock of crystals.
      Did not like what i saw, lots of dead ones in the tank and some had the creepy planaria in it??!!?! (This slimy friend still creeps me out)
      Decided to go with a guy that takes his shrimps from a breeder. My yellow neos came from him and i remembered the water it came in was good.
      He sent me a photo of the guys.
      Hope all goes well.
      Picking them up on monday.

      Have a read of this in the Health and Care forum.   Is it similar to Chitinolytic bacterial disease or Rust disease? There are some suggested treatments in that article. Carvacrol oregano oil might be a good place to start with as treatments go.

      Hi Ladies and Gents,  I need some help. Some of the shrimp in my PRL tank are starting to loose their colour and go translucent. I noticed this morning that the shell of one of them has changed to a light pink. He still has the thick white shell, its just the white part is turning pink. I'll attach a photo later on today. I know pink means internal bacterial infection but his "insides" look fine, its just his shell. By the time I went to get my phone to take a photo he ran to the other end of the tank ... typical. My water prams  Ph: 6.6 Gh: 6  Kh: 0  TDS: 241  Temp: 22-24 degrees  I  know my Ph and my TDS are a little high so I've been lowering it slowly over the last few weeks. I didn't want to change it too much and shock them. I do a 10% water change weekly and drip my new water in. I use a mixture of RO and tap water. I have fluval stratum in the tank and also have Indian almond leaves, subwassertang moss and cholla wood. I have green walls for them and I use a sponge filter.  Is this a Ph problem or is this bacterial? I've attached a photo of one of the females that have changed colour and who have gone translucent.  I appreciate all your help!

      I can’t get another picture to upload. I’m not sure how to make it smaller. But it’s a raised red circular growth that is getting bigger.

      Can hardly see anything except for the silhouette of a shrimp. Shine a torch on it while taking a picture.   But without seeing it, I can take a guess that it might be Rust disease. Yes, that's contagious. And have you read the sticky in the Health subforum?
