Rili shrimp breeding.

Postby ed9428 » Sat Oct 25, 2014 9:32 pm

Hi all.

I am interested in keeping and breeding blue gene red rili shrimp.
I see people talking about getting excited to see blue eggs instead of yellow, and something about blue velvet shrimp.
Is this from having something like a blue velvet male breeding with some red rili females?
Does any one know of a good rili breeding information source?

Blue rili are blue shrimps that have been selectively breed from the rili gene so that there are no more red coloration. Blue velvets I believe are blue cherries selectively breed from the chocolate family. Not sure on what you will get when you try and cross them as I havent had any personal experience myself.
